I can't see what difference it would make whether you were playing one or putting the skin on a drum.

I wondered about that, I can only think that it's in the dressing of the skin prior to fitting that the anthrax is contracted.

This happened last year also. Is there a specific locale where this problem is originating?

I think if the skin is treated in anyway the risk to the drummer is reduced. But the Australian customs don't take chances according to another thread hearabouts.

A couple of years ago in Danbury Connecticut a drum maker was sickened with anthrax after handling goats skins imported from Africa. They Enclosed his house and garage in shrinkwrap and had to fumeagate the property 3 times before they eradicated all the spores.

Irradiation of all hides used for drums is the answer, however the majority of ethnic drums are made where this technology does not exist. The spore of anthrax is not easy to destrot and infection thrpough the skin and by inhalation are still a risk.I can see why countries such as Australia are ultra cautious.
