Colombia: the ICA evaluates the Classical Swine Fever status in the country

The vaccination against Classical Swine Fever would be started in high-risk areas of the Costa Caribe region.

Friday 30 May 2014 (3 years 8 months 24 days ago)

The Colombian Agriculture and Livestock Institute (Instituto Colombiano Agropecuario, ICA) assessed the Classical Swine Fever (CSF) outbreaks that have appeared in the departments of Cesar, Bolivar and Magdalena, with the aim of redefining the area in process of certification as being CSF-free and of implementing the measures to protect those areas in Colombia that are not affected by this disease.

The organization will study the decision about implementing the vaccination of the swine population against CSF in the Costa Caribe region, regardless of the detection or not of outbreaks of this disease in some areas, bearing in mind the absence of immunity and the high risk due to the circulation of the virus that is taking place in the departments of Cesar, Magdalena, La Guajira and Bolivar.

In the face of the outbreaks that have appeared, vaccination campaigns against CSF would be started next June.
