According to the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture (MAGRAMA), the disease was notified on Monday, November 2, 2015 in Morocco. This is the first outbreak of FMD reported by Morocco since 2001.

The outbreak has been located in a cattle farm south of Casablanca in Douar Lmouarid, Bouhmame village, in the province of Sidi Bennour. This is a farm with 17 cattle and 14 sheep, where 10 cattle showed symptoms due to the disease.

The isolated virus belongs to serotype O, so failing its sequencing, everything seems to indicate that it is the same strain that has been circulating in Libya, Tunisia and Algeria since 2013 (ME SA Ind-2011.)

MAGRAMA wants to highlight the importance of applying good biosecurity measures in animal farms, veterinary interventions and animal road transport, especially by all those related to the transportation of animals, products of animal origin and feed destined for the kingdom of Morocco.

On the other hand, it is important to raise awareness among veterinarians and farmers about the proper application of passive surveillance systems, for which immediate communication and official investigation of any suspicious symptoms of the disease are necessary.

MAGRAMA is going to implement prevention and biosecurity measures immediately along their borders in order to avoid the introduction of Foot and Mouth disease in Spain.
