Afician Swine Fever
African Swine Fever (ASF) is a highly contagious disease in pigs. The infectious vector is the suspended particles of pig feces, urine or other secretions (tears, snot, etc.), or the pigs have eaten untreated meat from infected pigs, or are bitten by soft ticks with viruses, or contaminated through injection, or contact with contaminated tools, or being infected during the transportation process. The industry is very concerned about how to slow down the spread of African Swine Fever.
The main features and impacts of ASF:
• Fast spread
• Symptoms are similar to ordinary fever, and it is difficult to diagnose.
• Causing food shortages and severe economic losses
