ASF Continues Spread in China and FMD on the Move in South Africa

In the mid-January 2019 Global Swine Disease Monitoring Report from the Swine Health Information Center (SHIC), we learn African swine fever (ASF) continues to spread in China, including the first outbreaks in Gansu and Ningxia provinces. Additionally, there have been multiple detections of ASF in pork products stopped and confiscated at airports in Australia. Included in this article is a statement from USDA with their perspective about doing this kind of testing in US airports.  And there has been a foot and mouth disease (FMD) outbreak in South Africa’s FMD-free zone. Details on these topics and other news are included in the full report.

Funded by America’s pork producers to protect and enhance the health of the US swine herd, the Swine Health Information Center focuses its efforts on prevention, preparedness, and response. As a conduit of information and research, SHIC encourages sharing of its publications and research for the benefit of swine health. Forward, reprint, and quote SHIC material freely.
