Prefecture conducted a livestock disease drill

The Shiga Prefectural Government conducted a joint livestock disease drill on June 14 at the prefectural office, assuming that there is an outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease. Local authorities and stock farmers gathered and confirmed the procedure and cooperation in case of an outbreak being spread to Shiga.

At the drill, the prefecture told the attendees how the procedure would proceed based on the epidemics prevention manual when dealing with the disease.

"Prompt measures are vital to prevent foot-and-mouth disease from expanding. You are encouraged to find suitable places where you bury carcass of your livestock once they are infected with the disease," said an official of the Livestock Management Division.
