The contagious African swine fever (ASF) virus has been reported in Manipur, India, said officials in a Hindustan Times article.
Chaoba Singh, director of state veterinary and animal husbandry, said the disease has been detected in the Salungpham area in Thoubal district and Nongmaiching Chingkhong (Wakha) area in Imphal East district.
“So the said areas have been sealed and sanitized. One km radius of the area has also been contained to prevent further spread of the disease,” Chaoba said in the article. “The surveillance is going on within 10 km radius of the areas too.”
