Paraguay begins destruction of animals with FMD

Paraguay's National Animal Health Inspectorate (Senacsa) has announced that it began on Monday, January 9, the destruction of 168 animals in the north of the country which had been tested positive for FMD. This was the second outbreak of the disease in Paraguay since September last year.

According to Senacsa, 154 of the animals to be destroyed are on the farm Nazareth, owned by Gustavo Trugger Aquino, nine cattle are owned by farmer Marcial Morel, and five pigs are owned by Derlis López.

The destruction, says Senacsa, is being done by members of the Armed Forces, with technical support from veterinarians and technicians from Senacsa. Representatives from the Pan American Center for Foot and Mouth Disease (Panaftosa), José Naranjo, from the the World Health Organization, Isabel Sánchez, and from the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation for Agriculture, Carlos Franco, are monitoring it.
