The law for fighting against African swine fever has been approved. Its goal is to eradicate the disease “in two or three years at the most” from the island of Sardinia. In order to attain it, €4 million will be set aside, and half of them will be reimbursed by the EU.

This measure establishes an extraordinary action plan that will count on the active collaboration of Dr. José Manuel Sánchez-Vizcaíno, from the Veterinary Health Surveillance Centre (VISAVET, Complutense University of Madrid), considered the greatest expert on African swine fever and the plans for its eradication.

Within this project, the farmers will have to register their pigs compulsorily, use suitable fences to avoid wild foraging, and implement the established biosecurity and hygiene measures. The non-registered animals will be slaughtered.
