Rinderpest was an infectious disease infecting cattle, wildebeest and and other cloven-hoofed animals. It was officially eradicated in 2011, due to the joint efforts of FAO, OIE and other partners. This is only the second time in modern history that an infectious disease has been completely eradicated from the face of the earth. (The first was smallpox, eradicated in 1979).
Today, May 29, 2013, the OIE launched a digital media campaign urging all OIE member countries to destroy their samples of the virus, or to store their samples safely in facilities that have been approved by FAO and OIE.
The existence of virus samples in the laboratories that still have it poses a threat to global security in the form of an accidental or deliberate release of it into the environment.
