Five people are being monitored at a Hungarian hospital after the discovery of the deadly anthrax disease in samples of beef, reports say.

The Hungarian health agency says that a disease was discovered in frozen meat from two animals that had been slaughtered illegally.

The animals in the latest outbreak were reportedly slaughtered at a farm in Tiszafured, a town 160km (99 miles) east of Budapest.

Five people were concerned that they were infected by the diseases and were admitted to the hospital. 

BBC stated that bacteria that occur naturally in soil cause anthrax.

If anthrax isn’t treated it can lead to death. Symptoms of anthrax exposure include skin ulcers, nausea, vomiting and fever.
