The COA's Bureau of Animal and Plant Health Inspection and Quarantine on Feb. 3 reported the outbreak of "type O pan Asia" FMD on two pig farms in Kinmen.

Some 530 pigs in Kinmen were culled between Jan. 30 and Feb. 2 as a preventative measure and a ban was placed on the shipment of raw meat and livestock from the offshore county to Taiwan proper.Huang said the FMD outbreak has not escalated since the culling and the next two weeks will be crucial in the disease control efforts.

If no new FMD cases are reported in the next two weeks, the bureau will lift the ban, which prohibits the sale of raw meat and livestock from farms within a three-kilometer radius of the two infected farms, he said. However, the bureau will continue to monitor livestock farms within that radius, he added.
