May 16, 2019

Statistics from the National Steering Committee for the prevention of ASF showed that as of on May 12, ASF occurred in 29 provinces and cities, with a total of 1.22 million pigs infected and destroyed. “The disease is likely to spread to un-affected localities and become even more complicated; in many localities there have been recurring cases, and it seems that ASF will also hit centralized, large-scale breeding establishments, causing unpredictable consequences,” the Steering Committee said.
