Rosselkhoznadzor Held Talks with General Veterinary Authority of Mongolia

On August 15, 2018 Deputy Head of the Rosselkhoznadzor Nikolai Vlasov held a teleconference with the representatives of the General Veterinary Authority of Mongolia to clarify the information that appeared in some mass media about the outbreak of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (mad cow disease) in Mongolia.

During the talks the Mongolian side informed the Rosselkhoznadzor that the information published in mass media was false: two outbreaks of rabies were reported in Mongolia - a disease caused by rabies virus that does not pose such a high level of risk for livestock as bovine spongiform encephalopathy.

In the near future the General Department of Veterinary Medicine of Mongolia will forward to the Rosselkhoznadzor an official confirmation of freedom from bovine spongiform encephalopathy in the territory of Mongolia.
