Colombia has reported to the OIE an anthrax outbreak in sheep, goats, cattle and swine.

The two outbreaks are located in the north of the country, in the La Guajira province in the town of Manaure.

The affected population belongs to an indigenous community of the Department of La Guajira. There is a person with skin lesions.

Three goats, three sheep and two pigs have died from the outbreak on one farm. Another five goats and two pigs have died on a separate farm.

The community has been informed of the protocol to be applied to dispose of the carcasses, mainly the fact that, under no circumstances, the dead animals must be neither manipulated nor consumed. Susceptible species are being vaccinated. An intense epidemiological surveillance is being conducted in the area together with the public health authorities.
