South Korea Updates Quarantine Rules

20 January 2011

SOUTH KOREA - South Korea has revised its foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) quarantine rules to limit the culling of livestock, as the effects of vaccinations should better protect animals from the contagious virus, the government said today, 20 January.

Deputy Farm Minister Lee Sang-kil told reporters that with vaccinations completed for most cattle farms across the country, the government has issued new rules to stem the spread of FMD, according to Yonhap.
