During the routine active FMD serological surveillance, NSP antibodies were detected on a pig farm. Serum and throat swab samples for serological tests and virus isolation were collected and sent to the national laboratory (Animal Health Research Institute). The laboratory confirmed positive results with NSP antibodies.

The virus isolation and RT-PCR were all negative. The serotype O was identified by using FMD ELISA kit. The monitoring and epidemiological investigation of the index farm and those surrounding farms that keep cloven-hoofed animals (a total of 3 pig farms, 31 goat farms, and 67 cattle farms within 3-km radius of the index farm) have been completed and no clinical or epidemiological evidence of infection was found.
