Russia bans imports of Dutch meat over new virus

Via Reuters, excerpt :

" Russia has banned imports of sheep and goat meat and live animals from the Netherlands following an outbreak of a new virus detected last year, the Dutch Economics and Agriculture ministry said on Wednesday.

The Schmallenberg virus, named after a German town where it was first found last year, was first diagnosed in December at a Dutch sheep farm in the brains of lambs who were born with a deformed neck or head or stiff joints."
