First LSD case registered in Kunduz

KUNUDZ: The first ever Lumpy Skin Diseases (LSD) has been registered in the country’s northern Kunduz province, a health official in the provincial agriculture, irrigation and livestock department, said the other day.
The case has been found in the Imam Sahib district of the province, where Dr. Najibullah Hassan, a senior official to the department asked to not underestimate the virus, as the disease is feared to rapidly spread out among the entire cattle in the province.
“The disease will cause the lowest mortality for the cattle but, it would result in significant animal products’ losses,” said the official. Lumpy skin disease (LSD) is a viral disease of cattle and water buffalo that causes relatively low mortality; however, the disease can result in animal welfare issues and significant production losses. As the symptoms seen, the disease spread primarily by biting insects such as certain species of flies, mosquitoes and possibly ticks and then result in the illness of the animals.
