    Major equine flu outbreak in Mongolia
    August 3, 2011

    Equine influenza has broken out in 14 provinces of Mongolia, China's official Xinhua news agency has reported.

    It said the outbreak had been confirmed by the Mongolian government's news office on Tuesday, after suspected cases were recently discovered in 18 provinces of the country, where horses still play a key role.

    Xinhua reported that Mongolia's vice premier, M. Enkhbold, called a state emergency situation committee meeting on Monday to consider the response to the epidemic.

    Just three provinces - Bayan-Ulgii, Zavkhan and Umnugobi - are unaffected at this stage...
