"There will be a total ban immediately, if it is confirmed," said director of the livestock department, Tenzin Dhendup. "But as of now the import is still on. Without confirming, we do not take any action," he said.

The department has already sent a veterinary doctor and a Bhutan Agriculture Food and Regulatory Authority official to Matigara in Darjeeling district where the farm is located.
