PPR is one of the most important viral diseases of small ruminants. It opens the door to many other infections and has large impacts on animal production.
It is common in many parts of Pakistan, with outbreaks often starting in December-February and reaching their peak in April, although they do not
occur in the same location every year. Highest incidences are found in young stock less than two years old and can kill up to 90% of infected animals.
