According to the Provincial Governor of Gaza, Mozambique, Margarida Mapandzene, a livestock vaccination drive underway across the country will immunize more than two million animals against diseases such as anthrax, foot-and-mouth disease and other diseases.
The annual vaccination drive is one of the government’s foremost commitments to prevent and control outbreaks of animal diseases, some of which can be transmitted to humans.
Mapandzene said more 500,000 cattle will be vaccinated against anthrax, while another 500,000 will be immunized against foot-and-mouth disease.
Gaza is located in the southern portion of Mozambique.
