A new outbreak of the African swine fever virus has been discovered in Primorsky Krai. True, this time the disease was confirmed not in domestic animals, but in wild boars. The dead artiodactyls were found near the border with China.

As reported in the regional department of Rosselkhoznadzor, specialists examined the biometrics of two wild boars and analyzes confirmed the presence of ASF virus DNA in them. Samples were taken in the Border region of Primorye and now the service must take emergency measures to prevent the spread of the disease.

Currently, eight foci of African plague continue to operate in the region. The virus is safe for humans, but extremely contagious for animals. It is assumed that it in the territory of Primorye in August brought wild wild boars from China. During this time, more than 20 outbreaks of the disease were recorded. Hundreds of pets destroyed.
