The shops will be closed down for at least two weeks as the health officials take stock of the situation and make sure that no infected meat is sold to the general public.

According to the Ministry of Health, the infected animals were imported into the country which has led the health department to issue a proposal asking the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development to test all of the imported dogs for any infection.
