Namibia’s Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry has refuted claims that there is an outbreak of Foot and Mouth disease (FMD) in the Ohangwena region, which is 790 kilometres north of capital Windhoek.

The Acting Permanent Secretary of agriculture, Sophia Kasheeta said that no case of FMD has so far been confirmed in Namibia since the closure of the main outbreak on Jan. 19, 2016.

Meanwhile, officials are currently continuing with surveillance activities along the Namibia-Angola border because of the high risk for re-incursion of potentially FMD infected animals from neighbouring countries. Enditem
