Prevention and control of ASF
Currently there is no approved vaccine for ASF.
Prevention of ASF depends on implementation of appropriate import policies and biosecurity measures, ensuring that neither infected live pigs nor pork products are introduced into areas free of ASF. This includes ensuring proper disposal of waste food from aircraft, ships or vehicles coming from ASF affected countries and policing illegal imports of live pigs and pork products from affected countries.
Duringout breaks and in affected countries, classic sanitary measures may be employed including early detection and humane killing of pigs (with proper disposal of carcasses and waste); thorough cleansing and disinfection; zoning/compartmentalization; movement controls; surveillance and detailed epidemiological investigation; strict biosecurity measures on farms.
