South Korea's Ministry of Agriculture has just confirmed the country's first case of African swine fever.

The case has been confirmed at a pig farm in Paju, Gyeonggi, near the border with North Korea, a country that confirmed the presence of the disease for the first time late last May near the border with China.

Following the suspicion, the Ministry quickly implemented protection and control measures around the farm and points of control and disinfection of vehicles. Some 4,000 pigs will be culled to prevent the spread of the disease.

The Government has raised the alert for animal disease to the highest level, ordering a ban on the movement of pigs and related livestock at the national level for 48 hours to stop the spread of the virus. On the other hand, it has banned the use of food scraps to feed pigs and is planning to reduce the wild boar population in 14 border municipalities.
