African Swine Fever is rapidly spreading

FAO GIEWS Report – 2 July 2019 - East and Southeast Asia Focus

African Swine Fever is rapidly spreading in East and Southeast Asia threatening food security and livelihoods of households relying on pig farming (full report: http://www.fao.org/3/ca5273en/ca5273en.pdf )

Highlights:

• African Swine Fever continues to spread within East and Southeast Asia, leading to the death
and the culling of millions of pigs.
• The disease poses a serious threat to the livelihood and food security of large numbers of people
relying on the production and processing of pigs. Pig meat accounts for almost half of the meat
quantity produced in the subregion and is a key source of animal protein and income.

rapidly between February and May 2019.
