Summary of what Miyazaki's "Foot-and-mouth disease" influences

Foot-and-mouth diseaseHumans do not get infected + Even if humans eat infected cattle and pigs, there is no influence, cattle · pig · sheep · goat · deer is infected, blisters in the mouth and eat food I can not be able to lose my legs due to pain in blisters, and I am weakened, leading to death. When infected you will not eat bait, so meat quality and milk yield will be worse, the monetary value as livestock dramatically decreases. As a result, even if you continue to feed and feed, you will not be able to sell at a high price, let alone deficit. Furthermore, because the infectivity is very strong, it is infected with air and infects livestock of other livestock farmers not only livestock raised at other places but also livestock of other livestock farmers one after another, so for livestock farmers, It is natural that if you leave it alone, it will also affect meat / milk related foods.

So, I summarized what happened and what happened to such situation, what kind of things could be in the future and its influence.

Details are as below.
For the time being, the latest information at the present time is summarized on the following page.

Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries / Information on foot-and-mouth disease

Miyazaki Prefecture: Information on foot and mouth disease

Livestock related vehicle disinfection point overall map as of May 4 (PDF file: 748 KB), You can see the seriousness of the damage by eye.

If foot-and-mouth disease is confirmed in the first place, let's take a look at what the government will do first in South Korea, what kind of response is usually done. It is a story of April 12, 2010.

APRIL 12, 2010 03: 01
History's first warning alarm in foot and mouth disease, red light for blocking

The government opened an emergency animal quarantine council on 10th and decided to expand the preventive killing done within 500 meters from the outbreak area to 3 km radius from the occurrence area. It is also the first time that the preventive killing has been expanded to 3 kilometers in radius.

The crisis warning concerning livestock diseases is in four stages of "attention - attention - vigilance - serious", and sometimes issued a warning warning when suffering the worst bird flu (AI) in 2008.

The reason for doing the correspondence of this scale at a stretch is high infectious power.

Pigs are more than 3000 times more infectious than the cows in the foot and mouth disease virus.

As a result, the rapid response of the Chinese government is unusual, and we are dealing with the following measures.

APRIL 12, 2010 03: 01
Stop stopping pig, foot and mouth disease, in Ganghwa for the first time in 8 years

For the time being, the government is devoting her full effort to stop the spread of foot and mouth disease virus out of Ganghwa Island. At the two bridges connecting Ganghwa Island and the land, we strictly disinfect, while requesting the restraint of people in other areas to visit Ganghwa Island. We sent a letter of livestock industry, mountains, fishing and tourism related groups "I want you to travel to Ganghwa Island for a while, please forgive me", while requesting each TV station to screen similar subtitles.

Foot - and - mouth disease has occurred at the same time in Korea. In Korea Ganghwa District, 45 medical officials, 750 staff, vehicles carrying 30 cattle and pigs, 20 shovel cars are dispatched to the site, We have disposed of over 25,000 heads. Below are the pictures taken of the disposal at that time.

For the explanation of how far this foot and mouth disease is emergency, the following news is easy to understand.

Central Journal - [Editorial] Foot-and-foot quarantine network with open holes, countermeasure is urgent

Foot - and - mouth disease has no medicine. On the one hand infectivity is very strong. It is the reason why the International Organization for Animal Health is the highest among 15 malignant infectious diseases class A species. Once it occurs, the export of related products of the relevant country will be strictly limited. Precaution and prevention are more important than anything else. The foot and mouth disease of this time resulted in the pitted quarantine system as it was exposed. The pest control authority that was slightly obstructive when Pocheon's foot and mouth disease came to a close, was stunned.

When the epidemiological investigation is over, the infection route becomes clear, but it is said to be "O" type foot and mouth disease different from Pocheon's "A" type. This is a typical foot and mouth episode occurring every year in Southeast Asia since 2001. Foot-and-mouth disease is transmitted while 70% carries infected livestock products and contaminated items. Overseas trips have been generalized these days, it is the reason why citizens and livestock farmers should not loosen their vigilance. The farmer who had foot-and-mouth disease occurred frequently overseas travel, frequently used feed from China, and the epidemic authorities are investigating the relevance. Therefore, when traveling to a country where FMD spreads, careful attention such as carrying goods and disinfecting shoes is necessary. Carelessness of one person induces major damage. At the same time, foot and mouth disease is not transmitted to people, so it is not prohibited to promote unnecessary fear with regard to food.

Specific things such as how much movement is restricted if it is originally reported as follows.

An official of the Animal Health and Sanitation Prevention Support Headquarters was conducting the spearhead at the control shop. Every time it passed through the packing staff, the control personnel injected disinfectant into the vehicle with a rubber hose for car wash. When entering the contaminated area, the driver surely descends from the car and enters "a booth for one person's disinfection room", and it is supposed to disinfect the whole body.

Foot - and - mouth disease infected with virus. Even when three infections were confirmed in Miyazaki City and Takaoka Town (then) in 2000, it was not possible to identify the cause. Feed and person movement, wind. One of the possibilities is imported rice and wheat straw. The Ministry of Agriculture and Forests suspended the import of rice straws produced in China in 2005 due to foot-and-mouth infestation in China, but was canceled in 2007.

According to the Institute of Animal Health, foot and mouth disease frequently occurred from last year to this year in China, occurred in January this year in Korea.

Meanwhile, JA Miyazaki Economic Federation restricts feed rice straws handled to domestic production "I want to be cautious from the experience of foot and mouth disease". However, the domestic production is lacking in quantity and the price is also high. It is also a reality that farmers have to use imported rice straw.

In this way, the three countries of Korea, China and Japan became emergency due to foot and mouth disease. Especially, China is due to the wide national land, what "every year" foot and mouth disease is occurring.

The prefecture decides the land for reclaiming, and 65 farmers breeding this farmer are disposed of.

When I looked it up, I heard that the syringe will inject the medicine and kill the cow. Livestock farmers seem to be in a state of rather painful because they have to kill what they have brought up so hard.

In addition, the influence on livestock farmers in particular is enormous, and it will become serious from here on and on. It takes about 20,000 yen per month to maintain one head, so it is necessary to go out to the bid constantly, but that can not be done. Also, even if even a single patient is suspected of infection, the total amount of damage will be enormous because it will be a total head disposition to prevent further infection.

Kamakubo Osaka president (68) said, "Although it is not good for efficiency, it is inevitable to think about the risk of illness," expects early restart.

Domestic / economic / blowing beef export stops NY high-class restaurant / The Wall Street Journal, Japan Online Edition -

The Japanese government stopped exporting beef last week because domestic cattle infected with foot and mouth disease of viral infection was found. This means that the famous luxury beef with flavor and texture, high price becomes difficult to obtain abroad.

The chefs are crying for the loss of beef meat, which was offered at a handful of high-end restaurants in New York and sometimes referred to as "Kobe". Mr. Oscar Martinez, chef at Old Homestead Steak House in Manhattan said, "We are buying beef from Japanese suppliers, which is a famous restaurant for Kobe beef and its impact will be great.Kobe beef is popular menu There are regular customers and Japanese customers who visit to eat this, "he said.

There is only a small proportion of beef with meat in the US imported beef. According to Mr. Brett Stewart, a partner at Global Agriturez, a research firm in Denver, last year's US imported beef amounted to 863,886 tons, including 141 tons of beef meat, 5.9 million dollars (about 550 million yen ).

Mr. Physon predicts that if the virus infection is small, Japan's export suspension period will be three to six months. There is a possibility that the demand of meat of US cattle and Australian cattle multiplied with Wagyu be increased may be called hope.

On the other hand, Martinez claims that only Japanese beef meat can be used. Asked if there is a possibility of substituting Japanese beef with other domestic beef meat during the period of Japan's export suspension, "Such meat is terrible, it is not comparable with Japanese."

As economic damage gradually increases, Miyazaki prefecture Governor Togawa Tomohiro, Nakamura Koichi prefectural assembly chairperson, Mr. Shoji Haneda of the JA Miyazaki central council meet directly with the farmers of Hiroaki Akamatsu and tell the request To

Furthermore, suspected cases of infection are confirmed outside the restricted area that was set to prevent infection, and it is 70 km away from the first infection case, and the strength of the infectious power reaffirts again.
