Fiebre aftosa

Fiebre aftosa

Reforzar la vigilancia aérea, la presencia militar y el apoyo tecnológico de control e inspección en los pasos informales en la frontera con Venezuela, es una de las acciones anunciadas por el Gobierno Nacional para hacerle frente a la amenaza por el brote de aftosa y evitar su propagación. El Gobierno colombiano detectó el primer brote del virus de la fiebre aftosa, el 24 de junio en unas de las tierras cercanas a la frontera colombo-venezolana.

El Ministro de Agricultura, Aurelio Iragorri Valencia, señaló que los 73 puestos control existente en la zona fronteriza con Venezuela serán objeto de fortalecimiento, con miras a detener el ingreso de ganado de contrabando.

El funcionario aseguró que les preocupa "profundamente esta situación" y confirmó que se han adoptado una serie de medidas para tratar de contrarrestar el contrabando de ganado.

En relación con la prevención, se socializará con propietarios o administradores de fincas, gremios y ganaderos las consecuencias judiciales de comercializar ganado de contrabando.

Los nuevos focos de este virus se reportaron en un corregimiento de la ciudad de Cúcuta, fronteriza con Venezuela, y en el municipio de Tibacuy, departamento de Cundinamarca (centro), indicó el Instituto Colombiano Agropecuario (ICA) en un comunicado.

Por ello, se anunció la creación de una Mesa de Coordinación Fronteriza en la que estarán las autoridades nacionales, regionales y locales, las Fuerzas Militares y de Policía, junto a los gremios para coordinar acciones, vigilar las medidas a implementar y poder erradicar la aftosa.

"El brote de fiebre aftosa que presenta el ganado ingresado por la frontera, no representa riesgo para salud de los colombianos", reiteró. "Aplicar medidas sanitarias a las personas que ingresan por los siete pasos fronterizos y poner tapetes con químicos en dichos pasos para la desinfección preventiva".

Entre otras medidas anunciadas por el Gobierno para controlar la enfermedad se encuentra la prohibición de tránsito nocturno de ganado desde Venezuela y la aplicación de controles sanitarios a los vehículos que hacen la operación de importación de otros productos desde el país vecino.

Sanciones y sellamientos a establecimientos de comercio que vendan carne de contrabando.

Aumentar los controles a facturación en los expendios.
