S. Africa resumes beef exports to China after the foot-and-mouth epidemic


PRETORIA – South Africa has resumed beef exports to China after the outbreak of highly infectious foot-and-mouth disease (foot-and-mouth disease) in January, which interrupted trade.

The ban on exporting products from China to hoof-hoofed animals was officially revoked on July 23, said Chinese ambassador Lin Songtian during a briefing.

The viral disease, which causes lesions and lameness in cattle and sheep, was detected in a northern district of the province of Limpopo, with the result that the World Organization for Animal Health temporarily suspended FMD status in South Africa.
