Romania is to impose restrictions on trade with milk and milk products from Bulgaria due to the evolution of the cattle lumpy skin disease, the National Sanitary Veterinaru and Food Safety Authority (ANSVSA) has announced on Friday.

The products covered by these restrictions are colostrum, unpasteurized milk and unpasteurized dairy products (cheese from unpasteurized milk, fresh cheese, parmesan, certain types of yogurt, certain types of traditional products) obtained from bovines in Bulgaria.

According to the source, the Land Code of the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) stipulates that a country is considered to be infected with the DNCB virus following confirmation of an outbreak in the territory or due to the use of vaccination against the cattle lumpy skin disease virus (DNCB).

On June 22, ANSVSA announced that the number of outbreaks of cattle lumpy skin disease in the Balkan countries currently stands at 281, most of which, 173 outbreaks, were confirmed in Bulgaria.
