ASF: Does China not control its slaughter industry?

China's largest pork processor, WH Group, said today that it is responding to allegations by the Taiwanese government that the ASF (African Pork) virus has been found in a company sausage smuggled into the country.
The investigation suggests that pigs still slaughtered and processed in China are suffering from ASF.
China has now reported more than 50 ASF cases in 13 provinces. According to official sources, no sausages or other pig products infected with the virus have yet been found in China. A slaughterhouse of the WH group was forced in August to cease operations for six weeks because the ASF was found there.
The ASF virus in sausage in Taiwan is 100% identical to the circulating ASF virus in China. The authorities suspect that tourists brought this product to Taiwan.
Now the question arises as to whether China has enough control over its slaughtering industry. The shares of the WH Group have fallen today by 6%.
