The ministry’s spokesman, Saif Al-Badr, said in a statement that “a new infection was recorded in Nineveh governorate, bringing the total number to 208 cases, including 35 deaths.”
Al-Badr stressed that livestock breeders and butchers must take precautionary measures, especially with the arrival of Eid Al-Adha (Feast of the Sacrifice), and pay attention to symptoms, including high temperature, body pain, and intestinal colic.
Al-Badr noted that visiting the hospital when developing these symptoms can lead to a quick recovery before the disease develops to the stage of bleeding, which is the most dangerous.
