China's Ministry of Agriculture reported on Friday [14 Sep 2018] an
outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease [FMD] in a herd of cattle that was
transported to the Xinjiang region from Gansu province.

On Thu 6 Sept 2018, authorities discovered the suspected outbreak, and
on 14 Sep 2018 they confirmed a diagnosis of the O-type strain of the
disease. The local government in Xinjiang then culled 47 cattle
following the outbreak.

The outbreak is now under control, the ministry said.

[The FMD serotype O event in Gansu reportedly started on 22 Mar 2018,
was confirmed on 11 Apr 2018, and was reported to the OIE on 13 Apr
2018 (see http://promedmail.org/post/20180415.5747696). Since then,
one additional outbreak, similarly affecting cattle, was reported from
Gansu (follow-up report 1, available at
<http://www.oie.int/wahis_2/public/wahid.php/Reviewreport/Review?page_refer=MapEventSummary&reportid=26486>).
No additional outbreaks have been reported since from this province,
which borders Xinjiang province on its eastern side. Both provinces
border Mongolia.

All FMD outbreaks in China reported from 1 Jan 2018 to date (Sat 15
