In Khabarovsk, African swine fever was found in almost all areas of the city. Only the Central District remained without signs of the disease - because there are no pigs there.

According to the press service of the Khabarovsk administration, new foci of ASF are being detected among urban households. According to Marina Danilova, head of the veterinary department of the Khabarovsk Territory government, quarantine zones are now operating in Kirovsky, Krasnoflotsky and Zheleznodorozhny districts. Specialists confiscate sick animals and register livestock. To date, 268 pigs have been removed, but the bypass of the farmsteads continues.

The bypass and registration of livestock in the Industrial District has been fully completed. Here, an ASF focus was found in early September in the Krasnaya Rechka microdistrict, in the villages of Sosnovka and Ilyinka. A total of 450 heads of infected pigs were destroyed.

Veterinarians are assisted in all district management committees. City officials are helping with fuel for the crematorium and for transporting livestock. Municipal enterprises "Yuzhnoye", "Vodokanal", "Spetsavtokhozistvo" and "Spetskombinat" provided loaders, dump trucks and excavators to eliminate the outbreaks of the dangerous disease.

Those animals that were not included in the number of contaminated areas will still be monitored by veterinarians, Marina Danilova noted. If the slightest signs of ASF are detected, the animals will be destroyed. Treatment for ASF is prohibited, and there is no vaccine for the disease. Now in Khabarovsk, the emergency regime for African swine fever continues to operate. Farmers are encouraged to monitor the livestock and contact veterinarians in a timely manner.
