In the Amur Region, an attempt to introduce sausage with the African swine fever virus (ASF) into the region was thwarted. Dangerous product destroyed.

According to the Amur Region Veterinary Administration, the products are not dangerous for humans, however, if they were fed to pigs, a new outbreak of ASF would occur in the region. According to Sergei Samokhvalov, head of the regional veterinary department, the study confirmed the version of ASF drift in the Amur region from China.

Previously, virus DNA was not found in seized products. Studies on ASF of animal products imported from China in the Amur region have been conducted since the fall of 2019.

Emergency regime due to the spread of African swine fever in the Amur Region started acting in July 2019. Last time flash recorded in the Blagoveshchensk district in early November. Quarantine removed at the end of the year. The region had to destroy about 13 thousand animals.
