S. Korea goes all out to prevent spreading of African swine fever

 

The South Korean government is going all out to contain the spread of African swine fever across the country as the second infection was confirmed in Yeoncheon, Gyeonggido on Wednesday.

 

Yeoncheon is near the border with North Korea and it is about 48km away from Paju, where the first case of infection was confirmed on Tuesday.

 

The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs announced some 4,700 pigs at the Yeoncheon farm and a neighboring farm will be culled. Reportedly, about 8,500 pigs are being raised by other farms within a 3km radius of the infected farm.

 

African swine fever does not affect people, but it is fatal and highly infectious for pigs as no cure nor is vaccine available.

 

The Ministry is currently working to find the cause of the infection as the 2 confirmed farms have no connection.
