Paraguay suspends state of emergency declared after FMD outbreak

The Paraguayan government has lifted the state of emergency in animal health that it declared more than two months ago in a district of the department of San Pedro following an outbreak of FMD in cattle. In a statement, the Paraguayan authorities explain that the decree is based on a resolution by the veterinary service, which, in turn, confirmed the absence of viral activity in the region.

The state of emergency came into force in the district of Aguaray-Amistad (San Pedro), approximately 350 kilometers from Asuncion, after an outbreak of FMD in 23 cattle on a farm. Previously, the authorities had detected the presence of another outbreak in the same location. A leading exporter of beef, Paraguay is in the recovery phase for its first outbreak of FMD, registered in September 2011.
