In the Svobodnensky District of the Amur Region, a focus of African swine fever (ASF) was identified. More than one thousand pigs will have to be slaughtered in three settlements.

According to "Amur news service”, The disease was detected in four farms in Dmitrievka, Ust-Pere and Yukhta. A total of 1 pigs were infected. According to the head of the Svobodnensky district Elvira Agafonova, the cattle burial site will be organized at the entrance to Dmitrievka. Preparations for its organization began on September 120.

Also in Dmitrievka, quarantine has been introduced for 30 days. At the same time, farmers cannot engage in pig breeding for another year after the detection of ASF. This is the tenth case of the disease detected this year in the Amur region.

As the head of the department of veterinary medicine of the Amur region Sergey Samokhvalov noted, the reasons for the spread of the new disease are not yet clear. Experts observe a large migration of wild boars in China. Neighboring Primorsky and Khabarovsk Territories, as well as the Jewish Autonomous Region, are also considered unfavorable for ASF.

By the way, as EastRussia was told in the government of the EAO, in the region since September 11, restrictions on ASF have been introduced in five villages. The disease was found in dead animals on a farm in the village of Stepnoye. Now the villages of Bidzhan, Bashmak, Kirovo and Ventselevo of the Leninsky District are in the surveillance zone. All of them are located within a radius of 13 km from the focus of infection.
