Pox Found in Animals in Taiwan

Taiwan News, Posted: Jul 08, 2008

TAIPEI Taiwan has seen its first pox outbreak in history. All of the 210 infected sheep and goats were slaughtered Saturday, reported the Taiwan News. According to an official from the Council of Agriculture, sheep and goat pox viruses are not contaminant to human beings. The viruses are spread mainly through direct contact between sheep and goats and by inhalation of aerosolized particles containing the virus. Mainland China, Vietnam, Mongolia and Greece have reported outbreaks of the epidemic. However, Taiwan mainly imports its sheep and goats from Australia and New Zealand.
