Japan Finds First Swine Fever Case in 26 Years

The fever is different than China's African swine fever


Japan’s agriculture ministry said on Sunday it had confirmed the country’s first outbreak of swine fever in 26 years and suspended exports of pork and wild boar meat.

Reuters reports the fever, a different kind from the African swine fever that has broken out in China, was found in a farm in central Japan’s Gifu city.

African swine fever was detected in China in early August. The U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said last week it was almost certain to spread from China to other Asian countries.
