Swine fever hits Bali’s pigs
Bali – Hundreds of pigs have died from African swine fever in Bali, authorities said yesterday, after the virus claimed about 30 000 hogs in Sumatra.
Ida Bagus Wisnuardhana, Bali’s agriculture and food security agency chief, said nearly 900 pigs died since mid-December.
“The results are positive for African swine fever,” Ida said.
The string of deaths had appeared to stop over the past week.
