The global outbreak of African swine fever (ASF), a disease affecting only pigs with no human health or food safety risks, is growing, with new cases appearing throughout Southeast Asia and China.

非洲猪瘟(ASF)是一种只影响猪的疾病,对人类健康或食品安全不构成风险。目前正在全球暴发,东南亚和中国出现了新的病例。

While there are no reported cases of ASF in the U.S., a grant recently awarded to the Swine Health Information Center (SHIC), with active support from the National Pork Producers Council(NPPC), aims to start a dialogue between the two regions, sharing veterinary knowledge and ways to prevent the disease from further spreading.

目前美国还没有非瘟病例上报,最近,在国家猪肉生产者委员会(NPPC)的积极支持下,生猪卫生信息中心(SHIC)获得了一笔赠款,旨在启动两个地区之间的交流,分享兽医知识和防止疾病进一步传播的方法。

The approximately $1.7 million grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Animal Service division will fund the multi-phase project, helping to build strategic partnerships, while increasing trade of U.S. pork to the region. The work will include swine health field projects, including collection and analysis of disease samples, which are valuable data for all participants and U.S. pork producers.

美国农业部外国动物服务司提供的大约170万美元赠款将为这个分段项目提供资金支持,帮助建立战略伙伴关系,同时增加美国对该地区的猪肉贸易。这项工作将包括生猪健康领域的项目,包括收集和分析疾病样本,这对所有参与者和美国猪肉生产商来说都是有价值的数据。

“Pork production is a global business and working with industry representatives from Vietnam on these projects will be mutually beneficial for all,” said SHIC Executive Director Paul Sundberg. “The Swine Health Information Center looks forward to fulfilling the responsibilities of this grant from USDA and in the process deliver value to U.S. producers for the benefit of national herd health.”

生猪健康信息中心执行董事Paul Sundberg说:“猪肉生产是一项全球性业务,与越南的行业代表就这些项目进行合作对所有人都是互利的。”“生猪健康信息中心期待着履行美国农业部这项拨款的责任,并在这个过程中为美国生产者提供价值,以造福全美生猪。”

“NPPC, in partnership with SHIC, National Pork Board (NPB), American Association of Swine Veterinarians (AASV), and USDA, is committed to reducing the risk of the U.S. swine herd contracting foreign animal diseases, including ASF. With ASF spreading throughout Asia, this project will represent an important tool to further open both communication and markets between our regions,” said NPPC President David Herring, a pork producer in Lillington, North Carolina.

国家猪肉生产者委员会主席David Herring,同时也是北加州利林顿一名养殖户,他提到,“国家猪肉生产者委员会与生猪健康信息中心、国家猪肉委员会(NPB)、美国养猪业兽医协会(AASV)和美国农业部合作,致力于降低美国养猪业感染包括ASF在内的外国动物疾病的风险。随着ASF在亚洲的传播,该项目将成为进一步开放地区之间沟通和市场的一个重要工具”。

Under the first phase of the project, the groups will identify and meet with key stakeholders in Vietnam. In phase two, the groups will train the Vietnamese veterinary workforce on ASF prevention and control, helping to build local veterinary capacity. Concurrently in the final phase, ASF-related field projects will be implemented, including those helping to inform the U.S. pork industry about effective ASF preparedness and response.

在项目的第一阶段,这些小组将确定越南的主要利益攸关方并与其会面。在第二阶段,这些小组将对越南兽医队伍进行非瘟预防和控制方面的培训,帮助建立当地的兽医能力。与此同时,在最后阶段,将实施与非瘟相关的实地项目,包括帮助美国猪肉行业了解有效的非瘟准备和应对项目。

Information the projects will gain include:

· Identifying pathways for viral entry on farms

· Validating use of swine oral fluids to confirm farm or region positive or negative status

· Exploring the potential to isolate the virus on one area of a farm to enable other areas to provide pigs free of ASF contamination

· Validating cleaning and disinfecting procedures so farms may be repopulated as soon as it is safe

· Assessing cross-border risks and risk management of transboundary swine diseases

•确定病毒进入农场的途径

•确认使用猪口服液来确认农场或地区呈阳性或阴性状态的可行性

•探索在农场某个区域隔离病毒的可能性,使其他区域的生猪不受非瘟病毒污染

•验证清洁和消毒程序,以便农场在恢复安全的情况下尽快复产

•评估生猪跨境疾病的风险和风险管理

NPPC and SHIC are working closely with the USDA and the other industry organizations to first prevent ASF from entering the U.S. swine herd and to be prepared to respond should an outbreak occur. The industry is actively identifying and prioritizing critical research needs and working in collaboration with state and federal animal health officials to make sure that, at a national level, all appropriate biosecurity measures are being implemented.

国家猪肉生产者委员会和生猪健康信息中心正在与美国农业部和其他行业组织密切合作,首先应防止非瘟病毒进入美国猪群,并做好准备在疫情发生时迅速作出反应。美国养猪业正在积极确定和优先考虑关键研究需求,并与州和联邦动物卫生官员合作,确保在国家层面实施所有适当的生物安全措施。
