Hungarian food safety authority NÉBIH yesterday warned of an occurrence of African Swine Fever (ASF), a disease with a near 100% fatality rate in pigs, just 20 km from the border.
The outbreak was registered in Berehuifalu, Ukraine, NÉBIH said. A number of cases of ASF have also been registered in Poland, Czech Republic, Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania in recent months, the authority added, although no cases have been discovered in Hungary, thus far.
