An outbreak of a dangerous disease recorded in Primorye, in The border area, located almost on the border with China. At the end of July, two boars and a pig fell ill on a local the farm.
Veterinarians examined the biomaterial of animals for clarification type of infection, and the diagnosis was disappointing: African plague pigs. The region has been quarantined.
