Suspected cases of the foot-and-mouth disease have been reported in Andong and Yecheon in North Gyeongsang Province.

Provincial authorities say that farms raising domestic cattle, known as "hanu," in the two regions reported that a cow at each farm driveled frothy saliva and did not eat well, which are symptoms of FMD.

The farm in Andong raises 32 hanu cattle while the Yecheon farm has four, all of which have been vaccinated against FMD.

Tests to see whether the cows are infected are being conducted, with the results to be released Thursday morning.
