Update: March 31, 2018.

Last week I made the implication that mycoplasma bovis (MPB) could be spread via a human source and that MPB could be spread to humans. This was an unfortunate error on my part which I wish to retract. There is no evidence that mycoplasma bovis can be spread to humans. I apologise to MPI for any additional confusion this may have created.

 

Here is a direct link to the MPI report with the redacted content.
