Japanese Government Warns `extremely serious situation` - Swine Fever

The Japanese government has been focusing and updating the public on swing fever which is continuing to spread in Japan. The local governments in 5 prefectures have been saying that they are struggling to contain the highly contagious pig virus, which was first reported in September. The agriculture minister, Takamori Yoshikawa told a meeting in his ministry in Tokyo. The classic swine fever (CSF) virus was recently detected and was spilling over from farms in Gifu Prefecture. According to investigators, the worry is that they do not know how the flew is spreading.

The World Organization for Animal Health suspended Japan`s status of a CSF-free country after it was detected to have this virus again in September. There is a medicine, a vaccine to counter the sickness. In Aichi Prefecture the government is now culling around 6,600 pigs at a farm in the city of Toyota. The path at which swine fever is spreading is still not known. There have been other outbreaks in Japan in the past with clearly identifiable paths of spreading, allowing authorities ways of quickly arresting the spread.

The first such news of swine fever was discovered in 1992 in Japan with about 100 wild boars across Gifu and Aichi Prefectures carrying this sickness. More on this story in the coming weeks.
