It is a matter of satisfaction that there is no interruption in the supply of milk.

Maybe. The price of sweets made from milk has to be increased by Rs 20."

Professor Satish K Garg of the University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Bikaner, says, "We have never seen such symptoms in lumpi before. For the first time, symptoms like fever with sores and mouth ulcers have been observed. It is likely that the virus has a 'mutation'. ' has happened. Many labs are doing research on this.

In his letter to PM Narendra Modi, CM Gehlot has stressed on the need for additional help to counter Lumpi.

He also said that Rajasthan should be given preference after the vaccine is ready to compete with Lumpi.
