[The European Commission for the Control of Foot-and-Mouth disease
(FMD) monthly report "Global Foot-and-Mouth Disease Situation," May
2018 (see
<http://www.fao.org/fileadmin/user_upload/eufmd/FMD_reports_GMR/May_GMR_2018_270618.pdf>)
notes that:

"FMDV SAT 1 was responsible for the 62 outbreaks that occurred in the
southeast part of the country between November 2017 and April 2018
involving cattle and goats. The outbreaks were due to contact with
wild species and infected animals at grazing/watering points. The
infection continues to spread slowly in the affected districts due to
the limited supply of vaccine available. All the infected districts
were placed under quarantine with veterinary check-points also
controlled by police personnel placed at strategic areas to prevent
cattle movement. Inspections and community education campaigns are
currently on-going. Any illegally moved cattle are being destroyed so
as to deter farmers. The control measures in place are represented by
movement control inside the country, vaccination in response to the
outbreaks, surveillance outside containment and/or protection zone,
surveillance within containment and/or protection zone, traceability,
quarantine, control of wildlife reservoirs, zoning".
