China reports new African swine fever case in Yunnan province

Reuters – China’s agriculture ministry said on Monday it had confirmed a new outbreak of African swine fever in the southwestern province of Yunnan

The outbreak occurred on a farm of 120 pigs near Zhaotong city in the northeast of the province, killing 26 pigs.

An epidemic of African swine fever has swept through China’s hog herd over the last year, reducing pig numbers by almost a third, according to official data, and sending pork prices soaring.
