Anthrax has been suspected by breeders, auxiliaries, livestock workers and veterinarians in the field. At the end of this suspicion and the recent outbreaks in 2017 in Kankan and Koubia causing deaths and victims among the animal and human populations, 26 soil samples and 14 bones from the cursed fields were carried out in two rural communes of administrative regions of Kankan and Labé in the prefecture of Koubia. Analysis of these samples confirmed that of the 27 soil samples taken, 5 are positive, including 3 in Koubia and 2 in Kankan.
