The investment, aimed to be spent on research, control and disease extermination, is claimed to be essential for both animal and human health in both countries Ã¡nd the EU.
Usually, the European Commission only pays half of the costs. This is happening when dealing with e.g. salmonella in layer hens and AI.
The Brussels move can be called remarkable as the EU now pays all the costs for CSF
vaccinating in Romania. The reason for that is to get a grip on the disease as quickly as possible and to prevent the large risk of contaminating the rest of the EU.
Romania will receive about €5.25 million, all that is needed for buying live vaccine. Bulgaria on the other hand will receive €425,000, which is only half of the costs.
Compulsory BSE tests in Romania (€2.37 million) should also be paid for, the Commission suggests.
