The island of Hispaniola – the Dominican Republic and Haiti – has been posing a substantial risk for the spread of African Swine fever (ASF) to the North American mainland. Dr. Paul Sundberg, Executive Director of the Swine Health Information Center, says that the key to the solution is maintaining biocontainment and bioexclusion.

  • The USDA has been providing those countries with assistance, but there’s a long way to go until eradication is accomplished. In the meantime, managing the infection and helping contain it on the island are vital.
