It is suggested that in flooded areas the spores of Bacillus anthracis float and disperse, and later, under dry conditions, they concentrate causing outbreaks Turner et al.

If the smears are positive for B. This fact and also the occurrence of the acute form of the disease, with clinical signs not suggestive of anthrax, in the absence of necropsies, increase the difficulty of diagnosis.

In Outbreak 7 the farmer reported that the disease was occurring since some months ago, with sporadic deaths, and that it affected also 15 sheep out of 1, and 4 horses out of Anthrax is endemic all over the world, but the possibility of the bacteria to grow and multiply as saprophytes in the environment has not been established definitively.

The liver was moderately enlarged, with a yellowish or dark color. In the other outbreaks the animals were found dead, suggesting that the disease was peracute.

Accessed vacunso 30th April The number of anthrax outbreaks from to represents 0. Observing the climate data Table 2it can be suggested that dry conditions e be associated with most outbreaks.
