The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food Supply of Brazil has increased the surveillance of African swine fever (ASF) through the distribution of informative materials on the disease. The aim is to avoid the virus from entering Brazil. ASF was eradicated in Brazil on December 5th, 1984.

According to the International Agriculture and Surveillance System (Vigiagro), 88 posters written in Portuguese and English have been distributed in airports and border checkpoints to alert the travellers.

The airports also broadcast audible alerts to warn the passengers. Those who have visited farms, zoos, rural areas and other places where pigs or wild boars are present, or that bring with them pork products must go Vigiagros' desk before leaving the disembarking area.
