        (LEAD) S. Korea on alert over potential spread of swine fever via wild boars

        All Headlines 18:23 October 13, 2019
        ...

        SEOUL, Oct. 13 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's quarantine authorities remained alert on Sunday over the potential nationwide spread of African swine fever (ASF) after wild boars were found dead with traces of the disease north of Seoul.

        The quarantine authorities said Saturday two wild boars, found dead in Cheorwon, 90 kilometers north of Seoul and bordering North Korea, tested positive for the deadly animal disease, marking the first time traces of ASF had been found in Gangwon Province.

        On Sunday, two more wild boars found dead in the area tested positive for the disease. Since the first such case was reported earlier this month from a town near the inter-Korean border, Sunday's discovery raised the number of dead wild boar with traces of the disease to five.

                      All Headlines 17:57 November 02, 2019

                      SEOUL, Nov. 2 (Yonhap) -- A wild boar found dead near the border with North Korea has tested positive for African swine fever (ASF), authorities said Saturday, bringing the number of such cases to 20 in South Korea.

                      The confirmation came a day after the wild boar carcass was found by soldiers in the central border town of Cheorwon, about 90 kilometers north of Seoul, according to the National Institute of Environmental Research.

                      South Korea has begun to mobilize hundreds of soldiers and civilians to hunt down wild boars near the border to try to contain spread of African swine fever...

                          South Korean river turns red after being polluted with pigs' blood

                          9 hours ago

                          A river near the inter-Korean border has turned red after being polluted with blood from pig carcasses.

                          South Korean authorities had culled 47,000 pigs in an attempt to halt the spread of African swine fever (ASF).

                          Heavy rains caused blood to flow from a border burial site into a tributary of the Imjin River.
                          ...
                          Local authorities dismissed concerns that the blood could cause the spread of African swine fever to other at-risk animals, saying the pigs had already been disinfected before being slaughtered.
                          ...
