Adviser to the Prime Minister Dragan Glamocic stated on Thursday, June 30, that the “lumpy skin disease” of the cattle in Serbia was under control, but that the situation was still critical and that 465 animals had been put down by then. Glamocic said to the press at the Chamber of Commerce of Serbia, where the joint session of groups and competent institutions was held regarding the recent events in cattle farming, that there were 70 animals suspected to be diseased at the moment and that the disease was found in 12 municipalities in four districts.

- The disease is under control and hasn't broken out further into the Serbian territory, which is good news – said Glamocic and added that teams were vaccinating the cattle in both the infected and the endangered areas and on large farms such as PKB.

It was also said that the situation was still critical, especially until after the vaccination of the whole territory had been carried out, as the immunity development could take up to 10 to 15 days following the vaccination.
