Lalbiakmawia Sailo, director of the animal husbandry and veterinary department, said samples of dead and sick pigs were sent to the ICAR Research Complex, Barapani, in Meghalaya and the College of Veterinary Sciences at Selesih, Mizoram, where it was found that some of the pigs were infected with PRRS.

"The PRRS is caused by a virus known as arterivirus, which can be propagated through respiration, intercourse and artificial insemination," Sailo said, adding that the disease was never detected earlier in India but was present in other Asian countries, including Myanmar.

After the discovery, the Mizoram government is likely to continue the ban on import of pigs from Myanmar, from where the PRRS virus is suspected to have come to the state.
