They investigated the ethics zone where they reported the first rabies cow case


January 19, 2019, 10:02San José, January 19 (Prensa Latina) Officials from the National Animal Health Service (Senasa) continue epidemiological investigations on a farm in the Pérez Zeledo region, where the first rabies outbreak of bytine 2019 paralytic cattle was detected in Costa Rica.

In a press release, Senasa stated that the aim of the investigation was to rule out the existence of other cases on the Santa Teresa de Cajón farm, in the cantón capital (municipality) of Pérez Zeledo, where four animals were slaughtered after being examined who carried the disease.

Also, look for the possibility of other infectious animals on the farm and surrounding land. Senasa reported that 60 cows had been vaccinated, when they were known to have contacted infected and slaughtered cows.

Senasa reiterated to the farmers the need to comply with sanitation measures to detect crippled rabies, such as avoiding contact with sick animals that cause nervous symptoms, burying animal carcasses, keeping animals vaccinated against the disease and not manipulating wild animals, among others.

Remember that rabies is a viral disease that affects the central nervous system of warm-blooded animals, including humans, which causes lack of coordination, difficulty walking, drooling, leg paralysis that prevents waking, twisting the neck and finally, death.
