The Gorontalo Regency in Indonesia is on alert for FMD after recent outbreaks in some regions in the country. Regent Nelson Pomalingo has directed the local livestock and animal health agency to monitor all livestock, especially cattle, coming into the regency. “We have carried out a campaign to inform farmers about the spread of FMD. Farmers should vaccinate their cattle and report all cattle coming from other areas to related agencies for inspection. They must report all suspicious outbreaks,” he said.
