Cameroon – Farming: Panic on swine fever leads to shortage of pork in Adamawa

Written by Deckson N.

Since the end of March, it has been difficult for populations in the Adamawa region, located in northern Cameroon, to consume pork. According to the pro-government daily who revealed this information, this situation follows the discovery of a swine fever outbreak in the Mbe subdivision.

Therefore, the administrative authorities had to take measures to restrict the sale of pork, measures which today impact on the whole Adamawa region, we learn.

According to livestock breeders in this part of Cameroon, pork could soon become a rare commodity on markets in southern Cameroon, with cargo coming from the three northern regions incapable of going through the veterinarian checkpoints set up since the discovery of swine fever outbreaks in March in the Mbe subdivision.
