African swine fever has spread to parts of Vietnam that border Cambodia’s Ratanakkiri and Kratie provinces, a Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries official said on Friday.
Tan Phannara, the General Directorate of Animal Health and Production director-general, told a Phnom Penh workshop that he had received informal information from animal feed companies and animal raising associations that outbreaks of African swine fever in Vietnam were getting closer to Cambodia.
He called on Ratanakkiri and Kratie department officials to remain alert in monitoring for outbreaks.
