South Korea confirms second case of African swine fever
[SEOUL] South Korea has confirmed its second case of African swine fever at a pig farm near the country's border with North Korea, a day after the country's first outbreak of the deadly virus, its agriculture ministry said on Wednesday.
The outbreak occurred at a pig farm in Yeoncheon, northwest of the capital Seoul, the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs said in a statement.
South Korea's African swine fever outbreak comes less than four months after its neighbouring country North Korea reported its first case in late May.
