Since bird flu, CSF of pig infectious diseases, and classical swine fever have been confirmed one after another in various places, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries held an online meeting and requested the persons in charge of local governments and others nationwide to take thorough measures.
Bird flu has occurred one after another in Kagawa and Miyazaki prefectures since November last year, and has already been confirmed in poultry farms in 15 prefectures.
Last month, in December, CSF and classical swine fever, an infectious disease of pigs, were confirmed at pig farms in Yamagata and Mie prefectures.
For this reason, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries held an online meeting on the 19th, gathering people in charge of livestock farming in local governments, and Minister Nogami said, "In the event of a livestock infectious disease, we followed disaster response to protect the livestock industry in the area. It is important to take all possible measures to prevent epidemics in the prefecture as a whole. "
After that, he said, "I strongly request that effective measures involving the police, municipalities, and related organizations be established as soon as possible," and requested thorough measures such as prevention of invasion of wild animals and disinfection.
