Experts Warn Against Raw Milk Following Rift Valley Fever Outbreak in Kenya

As concern grows regarding the outbreak of the deadly Rift valley Fever (RVF) in neighboring Kenya, experts here have warned against consumption of raw milk. //

This is however despite reports that Tanzanian, even borderline areas, is safe from the viral livestock disease.

Officials with the Northern Zone Veterinary Investigation Center (VIC) have reportedly increased their monitoring activities and are maintaining tight restrictions around the stretching Tanzania-Kenya border in the northern zone regions of Arusha, Kilimanjaro, Tanga and Manyara.

The VIC Acting chief, Dr. Adam Mbise confirmed that an around-the-clock surveillance on the said remote periphery, precisely the one covering the 115 kilometer-long borderline stretch, north of Arusha, was a directive from the country's Director of Veterinary Services.

'We are maintaining a tight surveillance on the Northern Tanzania/Kenya border, monitoring the developments of a new outbreak of the deadly RVF in neighboring Kenya,' maintained yet another senior expert with VIC here, Dr. Adam Pima.

Though not a single RVF case has so far been reported on the Tanzanian side, experts have strongly warned the people around the vast periphery from consuming or handling all types of meat that has not been examined and approved as appropriate by the certified veterinar
