OIE: Two More Cases of Classical Swine Fever Reported

31 October 2012

GUATEMALA - Two more outbreaks of classical swine fever have been reported to the OIE.

One of the new outbreaks occurred at a farm in the Village of San Lorencito, Zunilito, SUCHITEPEQUEZ, where there were 13 cases reported, leading to two deaths.

The other outbreak occurred on a farm in the Village of Xiquina, Santo Domingo Suchitepequez. Of the six pigs susceptible, only one case was reported.

Both farms were backyard facilities and lacked any bio-security measures.

The source of the outbreak is thought to be due to swill feeding.
