The Ministry of Environment and Water announced yesterday it will not allow any livestock shipment which does not meet approved import requirements.

In a statement, the ministry says that it is implementing strict veterinary and biosecurity protocols as well as preventive measures against animal infectious and epidemic diseases at border check points to ensure that camels imported from GCC into the UAE are free from any of these ills including brucellosis and the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV).

The statement adds that camel shipments will be quarantined between 24 to 28 hours until laboratory tests were conducted.

The ministry affirms that these measures are part of its policy to protect public health and keep local animal wealth safe and way from imported epidemic and communicable diseases. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
