TULA, February 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Emergency is introduced in two districts of central Russia’s Tula region over a massive outbreak of African swine fever at major regional pig-breeding farm Lazarevskoye. This farm has reported the mortality of more than 1,000 pigs. Another 57,000 pigs will be slain to avert spread of the epizootic infection, the Russian agricultural watchdog told Itar-Tass on Monday.
The governor has earlier introduced the quarantine in these municipal entities by his decree. All required measures are being taken to avert spread of African swine fever on other territories. Swine isolation zones in the infection area are charted.
“Beasts are being taken away from infected area with compulsory compensation from regional budget. The bulk of produce at the enterprise is already taken away from economic entities, the cost of confiscated produce is also compensated from regional budget,” the press service said.Hotlines are opened for residents of Tula Region in the veterinary committee.
Loss of pigs at local pig-breeder Lazarevskoye in Shchekino district of the region was reported on January 30. More than 50,000 pigs have been kept at the farm at the moment of inflection outbreak.
In 2013, five infection cases of wild boars in gaming grounds were reported in the region. Last August, African swine fever cases were reported at a private farm of village Krasny Yar, last October, infection cases were reported at a farm in village Tesnitskoye.
Specialists of the regional health department recalled that this infection does not pose a danger to people, including in contact with cattle and pork eating.
