African swine fever outbreak reported in Yunnan, China

 


The new case, reported by China's Ministry of Agriculture is the latest discovery of African swine fever (ASF) that has rapidly spread throughout the country, reported Reuters.

 

The latest reported outbreak was on a farm in the Tengchong city district, located in the province of Yunnan, southwest China, said the country's Ministry of Agriculture.

 

97 swine out of 261 have been killed by the disease.

 

Millions of swine have been culled in China since it was first discovered in August 2018, amounting to more than 40% of the country's total swine population.

 

China has recently signed major meat trade deals with other nations in an effort to supplement dwindling local swine stocks in the country. As a result, prices for meat, especially swine, has risen exponentially in global markets.
