There are no registered cases of Lumpy Skin Disease (LSD) at cattle farms in Kuwait, said the Public Authority of Agriculture Affairs and Fish Resources (PAAF) Thursday. Deputy Director of PAAF Hanadi Bastaki told the press that there were no cases of LSD at cattle farms in Kuwait.
She indicated that owners of cattle slaughtered during the LSD prevention will be compensated. PAAF will continue to monitor the situation, said Hanadi. LSD is caused by the Neethling virus. It mainly affects cattle with most cases reported in Africa.
