While quietly sending military troops to kill and burry the cattle, Chinese authorities have not reveal the outbreak to the public.

The outbreak occurred in the outskirt of Wuhan City of Hubei Province. Local residents said on that New Year’s eve the authorities sent in armed troops and enlisted large digging machines to dig a pit 20 to 25 feet deep to dump in infected cattle. Soldiers shot the infected animals, doused them with gasoline and burned the bodies.

Finally, the cattle corpses were sprinkled with lime and antiseptic lotions before being buried. The whole process lasted several days and nights.
