World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) called on countries to strengthen efforts to keep out African swine fever on Friday after the Dominican Republic reported the Americas' first cases of the deadly pig disease in nearly 40 years, reports The Jerusalem Post.

The Caribbean nation's outbreak started July 1, according to an OIE report, though it was not confirmed through U.S. testing until Wednesday.

Dominican cases have raised concerns about the risk for African swine fever to spread in the region, including to the United States.

In China, ASF destroyed half the hog herd within a year of being detected there in 2018.
