New Cases of African Swine Fever in China
China continues to deal with an outbreak of African swine fever. Two new cases of A.S.F. have been reported in Yunnan Province in Southwest China. That’s the first cases of the disease in that key pork consuming part of the country. So far, the world’s largest pork producer has culled 200,000 due to the outbreak. That number represents only a small part of the 700,000 million pigs processed every year for food consumption.
