The Delhi Spring Polo Season has shifted it’s base for this year’s Spring Polo Season due to the spread of the deadly Glanders disease in the capital region. The government has issued an advisory which applies to the movement of horses. Delhi has been declared a “controlled area” , and a ban has been applied on movement of all equines - horses, donkeys, mules - from outside the city and vice- versa.

The government has also been taking samples from people who were in contact with the affected animals. The disease is infectious and in case of horses , leads to death and can also be contracted by humans. The infection is caused by the bacterium Burkholderia mallei , usually by ingestion of contaminated feed or water.
