FMD: Paraguay denies that Brazil and Argentina have closed borders

Paraguay’s national secretary of Animal Health and Quality, Daniel Rojas, has denied that Argentina and Brazil have closed their borders to the entry of cattle from Paraguay. Two days ago, Brazil’s Ministry of Agriculture said it would suspend imports of meat from cattle from the Department of San Pedro in Paraguay, where an outbreak of FMD has been identified.

The suspension is part of a string of measures announced by the Brazilian government to protect Brazil’s border. According to the Ministry, FMD was diagnosed in cattle on a property in Aguaray Amistad, in the Department of San Pedro, about 30 km from where there was an outbreak in September 2011.
