Due to the recent finding of positive serology against the TGE virus, the National Healt and Food and Agriculture Quality Service (SENASA) recommends strengthening the biosecurity measures on the farms.

In the context of the annual serologic screening carried out by the SENASA with the aim of establishing the absence of certain exotic diseases, such as Classical swine fever (CSF) and Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS), antibodies against the Transmissible gastroenteritis (TGE) virus were detected. This disease is caused by a coronavirus and, up to now, it was considered an exotic disease because it had not been detected in Argentina.

The most common ways for these diseases to enter the farms are: introduction of contaminated new animals, vehicles, people, equipment, water and feed. The main prevention measure consists on the implementation of strict biosecurity measures that strengthen the restriction on the entrance of people, the control of the introduction of animals, and the disinfection practices of the facilities, vehicles and equipment.
