The Iraqi Ministry of Agriculture confirmed that the number of hemorrhagic fever infections in the country during the current year  increased to 192, including 29 deaths.
The ministry attributed the increase in cases to indiscriminate slaughtering, which caused 40% of the cases, and indicated that the country needs 300 slaughterhouses to reduce the random slaughtering.
The veterinary department in the ministry called for the slaughtering during Eid al-Adha [28 Jun 2023] to be in official slaughterhouses and under the supervision of veterinarians and in coordination with the mayors of regions and municipal departments and to prevent slaughtering inside homes.
