No reports of African swine fever outbreaks in domestic pigs in Overstrand‬‬‬‬

We are aware of a WhatsApp message doing the rounds regarding an outbreak of swine fever in the Overstrand.

The content of this message is misleading as we have checked with the Western Cape Department of Health who confirmed that there is no confirmed cases of swine fever in the Overstrand area. ‬‬‬

The public is requested to first verify information before distributing unconfirmed information as it leads to unnecessary panic and distress.
