A major insurance company in Guangdong has joined the battle against African swine fever (ASF) in the southern Chinese province.
The insurance company has allocated materials worth more than 1.4 million yuan (204,780 U.S. dollars) to local companies to help lower the risks of raising animals. The materials include disinfectants and vermifuge.
Training sessions have been held in Guangdong to increase farmers' knowledge of ASF, and enhance their abilities against the ASF virus.
Earlier this month, China asked pork processors and hog dealers to secure certificates proving their products are free of African swine fever.
