The Ministry of Agriculture denied in a statement that the country had sent live cattle to Turkey, infected with anthrax in the blood called anthrax. The positioning of the map was released in response to news reports in the Turkish press this week, which had consequences in Brazil.

"Through the embassy in Brasília, the government of Turkey has informed the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Delivery that the import of live animals from Brazil is being followed without interruption and that the news about the prevention of anthrax on Turkish territory does not come from Brazil," said the statement.
