  • Pig ‘Ebola’ Virus Sends Shock Waves Through Global Food Chain

    By Dan Murtaugh and Enda Curran
    May 2, 2019, 4:01 PM CDT Updated on May 2, 2019, 10:53 PM CDT

    What started with a few dozen dead pigs in northeastern China is sending shock waves through the global food chain.
    ...
    While official estimates count 1 million culled hogs, slaughter data suggest 100 times more will be removed from China’s 440 million-strong swine herd in 2019, the Chinese zodiac’s “year of the pig.” The U.S. Department of Agriculture forecast in April a decline of 134 million head -- equivalent to the entire annual output of American pigs -- and the worst slump since the department began counting China’s pigs in the mid 1970s.
    ...
    China’s hog herd may decline as much as 30 percent, said Juan R. Luciano, chief executive officer of Archer-Daniels-Midland Co., one of the biggest agricultural commodity traders.

    “China will clearly need to import substantial amounts of pork and likely other meat and poultry to satisfy demand,” Luciano told analysts on an April 26 conference call. Chinese meat purchases may also boost sales of soybean meal, a source of livestock feed, in North America, Brazil, and Europe, he said.

    Wholesale pork prices in China are already 21 percent higher than a year ago, and have risen in the U.S. and EU after processors sent more of their product to China. The price of bacon in Spain jumped about 20 percent during March, while pork shoulders climbed 17 percent in Germany, according to Interporc, a Madrid-based industry group.
    ...
    African swine fever in China shows that “animal and human disease surveillance systems are not working as well as they should,” she said. “This should concern everyone given that the potential economic impact of large-scale outbreaks is huge.”

    • A small slaughterhouse in Wudang District, Guiyang City, Guizhou Province, transferred to the pig rafts to detect the African swine fever

        The Information Office of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs was released on May 18th. The foreign provinces of a slaughterhouse in Wudang District, Guiyang City, Guizhou Province, were transferred to the raw pork chops to detect the African swine fever.
        At 13:00 on May 18, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs received a report from the China Animal Disease Prevention and Control Center, which was diagnosed by the Guizhou Provincial Animal Disease Prevention and Control Center. A slaughterhouse in Wudang District of Guiyang City detected the African swine fever epidemic. According to preliminary investigations, the batch of pigs was illegally transferred from the province by the owner. Up to now, the batch of 75 pigs has a total of 6 diseases and 6 deaths.
        Immediately after the outbreak, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs sent a steering group to the local area to carry out epidemic supervision and epidemiological investigation. The local government has initiated an emergency response mechanism as required to block the slaughterhouse, control all vehicles, pigs and pig products on the site, prohibit all pigs and their products from being released from the blockade zone, and prohibit pigs from being transported into the blockade. At present, the above measures have been implemented, and the local public security department has controlled two carriers.

            African swine fever virus is now ‘endemic’ in China’s Tibet and Xinjiang regions, making its eradication harder, UN says
            The virus that causes the African swine fever is now endemic in Tibet and Xinjiang, the United Nations’ Food & Agriculture Organisation said
            Diseases that are endemic, or generally present, are harder to stamp out

            China’s attempts to control African swine fever have been insufficient to stem further spread of the disease, with the deadly pig contagion now endemic in two regions, a United Nations group said.

            The virus that causes the disease is entrenched among pig populations in the autonomous regions of Tibet and Xinjiang, the Food & Agriculture Organisation (FAO) in Rome said in a report Thursday.

            Diseases that are endemic, or generally present, are more difficult to stamp out by quarantining and culling diseased and vulnerable livestock.

            About 20 per cent of China’s pig inventories may have been culled in the first few months of 2019 amid fears of African swine fever spreading more rapidly, according to the FAO, which is monitoring the disease in cooperation with local authorities and China’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs...

                              Immediately after the outbreak, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs dispatched a steering group to guide local disposal work. The local government has started the emergency response mechanism as required, and adopted measures such as blockade, culling, harmless treatment, disinfection, etc., to treat all dead pigs and culled pigs harmlessly. At the same time, all pigs and their products are prohibited from being transferred out of the blockade, and pigs are prohibited from being transported into the blockade. At present, the above measures have been implemented.
