Anthrax outbreak in British cattle
ANTHRAX has been discovered in a cow on a British farm – the first case in an animal since 2006.
The disease was detected by officials on a farm in Westbury, Wilts, following the death of a cow last week.
The beast has since been incinerated and restrictions have been placed on the farm.
Mike Wade, deputy director of Health Protection for PHE South West, added: “We are aware of a confirmed case of anthrax disease.
“The risk of infection in close human contacts of the animal is very low, and we are in touch with any potential contacts to offer public health advice.”
Anthrax is a bacterial disease which primarily affects herbivorous animals, although all mammals are susceptible to infection. GRIPPING SCENE: 007 and Luccia
“It’s a shame she has to keep her clothes on in Spectre, because she’s got one of the hottest bodies ever.
“Normally, she can’t keep her kit on – so this time it’s a bit of a change for her.”
Spectre is out in in cinemas now.
