Foot And Mouth Disease Killing Animals in Egypt
Exodus 9:3 Behold, the hand of the LORD is upon thy cattle which is in the field, upon the horses, upon the asses, upon the camels, upon the oxen, and upon the sheep: there shall be a very grievous murrain. According to the Bible the actual reason for the plagues appears to be Pharaoh’s response to Moses’s request that the Hebrews be released. It seems as if God is telling the Egyptians again to let His people go, but they are not listening.
A plague of biblical proportions has again struck in Egypt. While muslims are persecuting Christians in Egypt at a record number in modern times, foot and mouth disease has been killing off animals throughout Egypt.
CAIRO, March 18 (UPI) -- Foot and mouth disease has spread throughout Egypt, claiming more than 3,100 animals, government officials said this weekend.
The General Authority for Veterinary Services said the Sat 2 serotype of the livestock disease had turned up in governates nationwide with well over 33,000 cases reported.
The state MENA news agency said the outbreak appeared to be most serious in the Gharbiya and Dakahliya governates.
Egypt last week suspended a vaccination program so that it could be adjusted to be more effective against Sat 2. Farmers were also required to bury dead animals rather than disposing of them in drainage canals.Source
