            South Korea on high alert as second strain of foot-and-mouth disease confirmed

            Posted 09 Feb 2017 17:10

            SEOUL: South Korea raised the country's foot-and-mouth disease alert status to the highest level as a second strain of the disease was confirmed three days after a first outbreak was reported, Seoul's agriculture ministry said on Thursday.

            The A-type strain of the disease was discovered at a dairy farm in Yeoncheon, less than 50 miles north of the capital, said Kim Kyeong-kyu, deputy minister for food industry policy. Reacting shortly after an outbreak of the O-type strain was confirmed in southeast Korea, the ministry raised the alert status one notch to the maximum.

            "We are raising the alert level as foot-and-mouth cases occurred at different parts of the country and a second type of the disease emerged," Kim said at a briefing. As of Wednesday, 826 cattle had been culled, the ministry said.

              Simultaneous outbreaks of two kinds of foot and mouth disease, as alert level is raised to ?severe?
              Posted on : Feb.11,2017 15:49 KST Modified on : Feb.11,2017 15:49 KST

              Different strains of the virus causing foot-and-mouth disease have appeared simultaneously in South Korea for the first time. With a disease confirmed at a fourth farm, the government has elevated its crisis warning system to ?severe,? the highest level.

              According to sources from the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs on Feb. 9, the strain of the virus found at the dairy farm in Yeoncheon County, Gyeonggi Province, is the A-type. There are seven strains of the foot-and-mouth virus: O, A, Asia1, C, SAT1, SAT2 and SAT3. There have been eight outbreaks of foot-and-mouth disease in South Korea since 2000, but the A-type virus was only found in an outbreak of six cases at cattle farms in Pocheon and Yeoncheon, Gyeonggi Province, in Jan. 2010. The other seven outbreaks all involved the O-type strain.

              The problem is that it?s unclear whether the foot-and-mouth disease vaccine that the government currently possesses will stop the A-type virus in this outbreak. With the virus spreading around the country, vaccination is the most important form of disease control. Livestock at farms have been inoculated with an O+A vaccine that is supposed to be effective against both strands of the virus. But even with the A-type vaccine, its efficacy varies with the specific genotype of the virus...
