Breeders of Primorsky Krai are reminded of the threat of the spread of the African plague virus among pigs. Of the 45 epizootic foci that have occurred in the region since last summer, 35 decided to quarantine, but ten more remain valid.

According to the press service of the regional administration of the Rosselkhoznadzor, wild areas within the borders of the Khorolsky, Kirovsky, Oktyabrsky and Pogranichny districts remain undeveloped. Residents of the settlements are asked to immediately inform the agency in case of detection of dead boars or signs of the disease in pets.

Virus came to the region last summer. Presumably brought him to the territory wild boars from China. By autumn, the number of outbreaks reached 21. In the areas of detection quarantine was in effect, sick animals were seized from farmers and destroyed, a ban on the export of meat was in effect. Due to frequent outbreaks of the disease, Primorye authorities decided to cut the number of wild boars in the region.
