The number of infections in Narenbaolige Town was 4, accounting for 23.40%. Univariate logistic regression analysis shows that frequent consumption of unsterilized dairy products, milking, processing lambs or slugs and infected cloth The disease was positively correlated ( OR = 11.80, 139.14, 8.02, P<0.05). Multivariate Logistic regression analysis showed that milking was positively correlated with brucellosis infection ( OR = 20.19, 95% CI = 2.01 – 202.74, P = 0.01).
