Genoa – The Liguria Region “is at work for introduce exceptions to restrictions for outdoor activities in the area established as infected by African swine fever “. This was announced by the vice-president of the Region Alessandro Piana in response to a question from the group leader of Linea Condivisa in the Regional Council Giovanni Pastorino. The ordinance in force issued by the ministries of Health and Agricultural Policies requires a stop to hunting, fishing, collecting mushrooms and truffles, trekking, mountain biking and other activities of direct or indirect interaction with wild boars at risk of infection in the 114 Municipalities of the ‘red zone’, 78 in Piedmont, all in the province of Alessandria, 36 in Liguria, in the provinces of Genoa and Savona.
“The exceptions they will cover outdoor activities not in contrast with the European recommendations and the ministerial provisions “, Piana reiterates.” I think it is positive from a political point of view that we are working to be able to mitigate a series of restrictions which, while respecting the regulations for the health of pigs, must be attenuated because there is no doubt that our hinterland is in a very difficult situation “, comments the group leader Pastorino.
Since the end of December they are 53 wild boar carcasses found infected: 30 in the province of Alessandria and 23 in the provinces of Genoa and Savona.
