Govt to purchase and cull pigs due to African swine fever

 

The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs is putting in its utmost efforts to stem the outbreak of African swine fever (ASF), by extending a lockdown on northern areas of the country and culling more pigs as a part of preventive measures.

 

In less than 3 weeks since the country's first-ever outbreak of the disease, 13 cases have been confirmed.

 

The Ministry said the standstill on all pig farms of Gyeonggido and Gangwondo currently in place will be extended for 2 more days.

 

While culling all pigs in a 3km radius of infected farms, the Ministry plans to purchase all pigs outside of that boundary in Paju and Gimpo to produce meat and conduct preventive culling measures.

 

More than 100,000 pigs have been culled as of Friday morning, and the figure is expected to exceed 150,000 when the remaining pigs are slaughtered.

 

Culling is considered the only way to prevent the spread of African swine fever with no cures for the disease currently available.
