African swine fever outbreaks ‘under control’
    2018-12-06  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

AFRICAN swine fever outbreaks are generally under control in China as prevention and control measures have been effective, a senior agricultural official said Tuesday.

A total of 81 cases of the disease had been reported in 21 provincial regions as of Monday, vice minister of agriculture and rural affairs Yu Kangzhen said at a meeting with political advisers.

Some 631,000 pigs have been culled across the country and measures, including stricter monitoring of live pig transportation, entry inspection and quarantine, have been taken, according to Yu.

Thanks to the efforts, the situation has started to improve and restrictions have been lifted in 35 affected areas in eight provincial regions.

African swine fever is a highly contagious, viral disease that affected pigs. It does not affect humans or other animal species.

China will continue to tighten supervision and prevent imported epidemics, Yu said.

More than 5,800 cases of the disease have been reported in 22 countries this year.
