Anthrax in Finland

15 November 2004

Finland's Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry reported in early November that anthrax had been detected in a calf on a farm in southern Finland, according to Baltic Business News. The disease was found in a sample sent to the National Veterinary and Food Research Institute of Finland (EELA) in October. Finland's chief veterinary inspector, Jessica Löfgren-Eriksson, was reported as saying that the situation is no cause for alarm. Finland had previously recorded anthrax cases in cattle in Orimattila in the 1970s and in Ostrobothnia in 1988.
