ASF now also in a large Chinese fattening plant

Yu Kangzhen, Deputy Minister of Agriculture of China, yesterday called on his country's local governments to scrutinize larger pig farms and sow farmers more closely. Meanwhile, another case of highly infectious African swine fever (ASF) has been reported.
Since the outbreak of the first case in early August, 40 independent ASF cases have been reported in China in 10 provinces. Since then almost 50,000 animals have been culled.
Last week, a case occurred on a large farm with 20,000 fattening places in northeast Liaoning Province. It was the first ASF outbreak in an operation of this magnitude.
Every day there are new ASF outbreaks, but experts say dozens of cases go undetected. The deputy minister complains that his authorities set wrong priorities in the prosecution of cases.
Meanwhile, China has also stopped imports of pig products from Moldova, as did those from Bulgaria, Japan and Belgium last week. ASF cases had also been reported in these countries.
