South Korea reports new cases of African swine fever


More wild boars have been discovered dead and tested positive for African swine fever in South Korea, authorities said.

More than 250 boars have tested positive near the North Korean border.

Hundreds of soldiers were tasked with hunting down wild boars near the border last year to contain the spread of the deadly disease. ASF is not harmful to humans, but it is devastating for pig farmers and the pork industry because there is no cure or vaccine.
