Under the regular influenza virus surveillance programme on pigs, the CFS has been helping HKU researchers to collect samples from pigs at the Sheung Shui Slaughterhouse twice a month to monitor influenza virus activity in pigs. Starting from the May to July 2012 surveillance period, results of the surveillance program will be uploaded to the CFS website for public information. Results will be announced immediately if findings have significant impact on food safety and public health.
