Swine fever, Capua: “There is no vaccine. Italy is also affected”
New sanitary emergency in sight. The Coronavirus and the monkeypoxnow in Italy there is a new problem and it should not be underestimated: the swine fever. “Italy – the virologist Ilaria Capua explains to Corriere della Sera – could not think of staying out of it: this virus has been around for several years in Central Europe, in the Baltic republics, in Poland, Russia and China. And if you go see the numbers in Chinathe major consumer from pig meat to the world, the effect was devastating. If it entered the pork supply chain in Italy it would be a very hard blow. For almost all diseases of animals and humans there are gods vaccinesbut in the case of swine fever, precisely because of its incredible selectivity, does not exist. Or rather: we failed to produce a vaccine that has levels of effectiveness And safety such as to be able to put it in trade“.
“The risk is zero for the human being. It is not transmitted to humans – continues Capua al Corriere – neither directly (contact), nor indirectly (with food). It’s a virus very selective. A kind of demanding virus, anything but good-mouthed: it exclusively infects suidae (pigs, wild boars, warthogs) and no other species. But precisely this characteristic is also a big issue. If it got into the pig business we’d have to do some sort of lockdown some animals. I hope that doesn’t happen, but the market of products of animal origin it works like this. It would be a disaster, because she would like to say block the entire supply chain, jobs. If you don’t have a vaccine that’s a lot hard control the disease and its circulation. Once it has arrived within a receptive population it could explode“.
