The Ministry of Agriculture urges the owners of large farms and breeding farms to carry out on-farm ASF tests for the detection of this disease.

The tests shall be provided by the Ministry of Agriculture or the Animal Diseases Control Centre of China, and the authorities shall provide funds to the farms so they can carry out these tests. Besides, the local livestock and veterinary departments shall provide technical services to pig farmers so they carry out the ASF tests.

The Ministry has also pointed out that before carrying out the diagnosis, the pigs and other potentially infected items are isolated and not removed without authorisation.

The regional livestock and veterinary department shall carry out an epidemiologic research, samplings and tests in hazardous places and on hazardous products with epidemiologic links, verifying all the hints, gathering all the evidences and removing all the risks in an effective way.

The livestock and veterinary departments shall encourage the role of pig farmers on the prevention of the disease, shall favour the building of farms for the prevention of epidemics, provide the farmers with the tests for the detection of ASF and with disinfecting products and other supporting materials for the complete cleaning and disinfection of the premises, other tools and transport vehicles, and the implementation of the main biosecurity measures (for instance, forbid the entrance to the farms of foreign staff and vehicles).
