Kyrgyzstan confirms five anthrax cases‎

BISHKEK, Aug. 31 (Xinhua) -- The Kyrgyz Health Ministry said Friday five people had tested positive for anthrax.

The five were among nine people who had been hospitalized in the central Asian country for anthrax-like symptoms in the past month, a health ministry spokesman was quoted by Interfax as saying.

Quarantine authorities had adopted counter-epidemic measures in the infectious disease-hit areas, where people as well as livestock had been given a vaccination against the bacteria, the spokesman said. Source
