China reports new African swine fever case in Ningxia

BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs reported a new case of African swine fever on a farm in the northwestern region of Ningxia on Tuesday.

The farm, in a district of Yinchuan city, had 226 pigs and 13 had already died of the disease, it said.

China, the world’s top pork producer, has seen its hog herd shrink by a third since the uncurable disease arrived in the country more than a year ago.
