S. Korea in battle to stem possible spread of ASF via wild boars

S. Korea in battle to stem possible spread of ASF via wild boars

 

Quarantine authorities on Monday vowed to prevent the potential spread of African swine fever via wild boars, as some of them were discovered dead with traces of the virus north of Seoul over the weekend.

 

A total of five wild boars were found dead north of Seoul this month amid rising speculation that the virus may have traveled from North Korea, which reported its own outbreak a few months earlier.

 

Authorities plan to carry out disinfection operations in the border areas with helicopters.

 

The Agricultural Ministry also vowed to speed up the purchase of pigs from farms in the affected areas as well, which will be slaughtered and inspected before their meat is released onto the market.

 

The Ministry has been culling all pigs within a 3-kilometer radius of infected farms. More than 150,000 pigs have been culled since the outbreak started.
