African pig-fever in China - fear of further outbreaks

In China's province of Liaoning, the pig farmer's controls and all transshipment points as well as the transports are to be expanded after the discovery of the African pig-pork in East Asia for the first time. This is reported by the region's media today.
The outbreak of African pigmeat poses a major threat to all pigmeat in the province and across China and needs to be eradicated, according to a spokesperson for the Provincial Animal Health and Animal Production Bureau.
The provincial government has instructed local authorities to set up immediate emergency response in all pig farms, pig markets, slaughterhouses, as well as in inconspicuous locations. All animal carcasses whose cause of death is unknown should be reported. Slaughtered animals with spleen enlargement or spleen hemorrhoids and immune failure after being vaccinated against pigs must be reported immediately.
Liaoning has ordered the temporary closure of all live pig and slaughterhouse markets in Shenbei, where the first outbreak occurred. 913 animals were culled near Shenyang, the capital of Liaoning. The transport of pigs in the affected area has been completely stopped.Pigs and pork products can only be distributed in the city; All external transport needs to be strictly quarantined, according to the Animal Health Bureau.
The Liaoning outbreak, the first case of African pork in East Asia, is fueling fears of further outbreaks in China, where the largest pig herd in the world is kept, as well as neighboring Asian countries.
Japan has already banned imports of heat-treated Chinese pork and has relied on stricter controls by the quarantine authorities at airports and port cities since the outbreak.
