In Yakutsk, more than two tons of pork was found, which was infected with African plague. The goods came from the Saratov region, but did not have time to go on sale.

As EastRussia was told in the press service of the government of the republic, the genetically DNA material of ASF was found in a batch from the company SarProdTrade, which was intended for Yakutsk. An entrepreneur of the republic ordered pork, but the virus was detected through the GIS "Mercury" during federal monitoring.

Rosselkhoznadzor took samples in meat at the Nizhny Bestyakh station. The survey was carried out in the Irkutsk interregional veterinary laboratory. As explained by the head of the veterinary department Petr Petrov, it became known that the meat was contaminated on October 26.

After the virus was detected, restrictive measures were introduced for the infected object. Now the 2,9 tons of pork in the container will be seized and disposed of. This is the first case of ASF delivery to the territory of the republic.
