    South Africa: Campaign Initiated Following African Swine Fever Outbreak

    34 pigs killed in North West swine fever outbreak
    Updated April 10, 2019, 6:02 p.m. | By Nokukhanya Mntambo
    Reports of an African swine fever outbreak in the North West have been confirmed.


    Tests were conducted on free range pigs at Doornhoek Farm in Lichtenburg after a farmer reported the death of several pigs.

    According to the Director of Veterinary services in the North West, Dr Langa Madyibi, the outbreak is confined to one farm.

    "As far as we know it's been confined to that one farm. We have plans to determine the extent of the spread of the disease. There's quite a good number of farms. There's also a nature conservation close to that area so our survey in extent of finding out is going to go and cover all those areas, all those neighbouring farms and surrounding farms, together with the nature reserve."...
