Vaccine in China, 2011-2015
To assess herdsmen's ability to correctly identify FMD
and to compare the sensitivity and specificity of herdsman reporting with that of serologic testing, we conducted a cross-sectional study of FMD
on the Adamawa plateau, the major cattle-rearing area of Cameroon.
No restrictions were imposed in the FMD
free zone south of the Veterinary Cordon Fence as well as other areas such the protection zone north of the fence such as Kavango, Oshikoto, Ohangwena, Oshana, Omusati and Kunene North.

virus initiates infection in cattle.

went unchecked, it spread among the wildlife of Nagarahole National Park.
Most were in a firebreak zone organised by government vets in an attempt to contain FMD

dynamics in eastern Asia, as well as the magnitude of the outbreak in South Korea, are unlike anything that we've seen for at least a half century," said Juan Lubroth, FAO's Chief Veterinary Officer.
Researchers at the USDA's Foreign Animal Disease Research Unit have identified the primary site where the virus that causes FMD
begins infection in cattle.
