Disclosure of this information is important as a process of education to the public.

The hope is to understand more and place vigilance so that it is not easy to panic.

He explained that the government could take preventive measures by preventing the circulation of livestock both in and out of endemic areas.

“If necessary, the area will be isolated for a certain time. Even the nearest animal market may need to be closed temporarily,” he explained.

Ali hopes that the livestock and animal health service officers will carry out patrols in order to control the possible spread of anthrax.

For breeders, if they find strange symptoms, they immediately report it to the relevant service.
