China reports fifth case of African pig fever

The Chinese Ministry of Agriculture reports a recent case of African pig fever. The fifth case in the fifth province. Accordingly, 185 pigs have been infected on a farm in the city of Wuhu in eastern China in the province of Anhui.
In 80 of 459 animals on the farm, the infection has led to death. The remaining 379 animals are culled.
In the affected areas, the authorities have prohibited the transport of pigs and related products.
The Chinese Ministry of Agriculture said Wednesday in a statement on the homepage that it can not be ruled out that there are new outbreaks of African swine fever (ASF). The risk of transmission of African swine fever from neighboring countries is still high. The FAO also warned on Tuesday that the virus, which is fatal to pigs, could spread "at any time" to other countries on China's borders, including parts of Southeast Asia, where the consumption of pork is also high. For humans, the virus is not harmful.
