    Swine Fever outbreak hits Zimbabwe
    by STaff reporter
    4 hrs ago

    The country has been hit by African Swine Fever (ASF) which has already caused the death of 156 pigs in Nyakomba and Nyamaropa areas in Manicaland.

    Government has since moved in to curb the spread of the transboundary animal disease that is highly contagious and can be spread by live or dead pigs, domestic or wild pigs and pork products.

    A quarantine has been imposed on Nyanga District and the movement of live pigs and pig products into and out of the area have been banned to avoid the spread of the disease to other areas...
