Kazo district receives 5000 doses of Blanthax from MAAIF

Kazo District has received over 5000 doses of Blanthax from the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries to vaccinate animals against anthrax.

According to the District Veterinary Officer; Dr Ronald Kiyemba, there has been concerns among the cattle farmers in Kazo most especially in Engari Sub-county with suspicion that Anthrax is still around and it could affect their herds.

The concerns of the cattle farmers follow a previous experience where during May 2018, Engari Sub-country chief received reports of humans with suspected anthrax causing the sudden death of three cows on a farm and some humans who had reportedly participated in the butchery and consumption of meat from the dead cows also tested positive for B. anthracis.

Dr. Kiyemba also appealed to the farmers to fully participate in the exercise such that the fears are contained.

According to Centre for Disease control and prevention, (CDC), anthrax is a serious infectious disease that can cause severe illness in both humans and animals.

CDC explains that anthrax is caused by gram-positive, rod-shaped bacteria known asĀ Bacillus anthracis. It occurs naturally in soil and commonly affects domestic and wild animals around the world.

People can get sick with anthrax if they come in contact with infected animals or contaminated animal products
