Molecular Characterization Of Foot-And-Mouth Disease Virus Recently Recovered In Zambezi Region, Namibia

ABSTRACT Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is a severe highly contagious viral disease of clovenhoofed animals that has significant economic impacts. FMD causes significant economic loss in Namibia in which the molecular epidemiology of FMD virus (FMDV) responsible for the outbreaks has not been consistently studied. The general objective of this study was to determine molecular characteristics of FMD viruses of 2019 outbreak in Zambezi region, Namibia. A total of 11 epithelial tissue samples...
