BEIJING (Reuters) - China reported its first outbreak of the deadly African swine fever (ASF) on Last Friday, as authorities in Liaoning province in the country’s northeast culled almost 1,000 hogs and rushed to control the highly contagious disease.

News of the infection will stoke concern about its spread in the world’s largest pig herd, and possibly to Japan, the Korean Peninsula and other parts of Asia. Cases have been recorded across Europe, Russia and sub-Saharan Africa, but it has never occurred in East Asia until now, according to the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO).

What is African swine fever(ASF)?

African Swine Fever (ASF) is a highly contagious, generalized disease of pigs caused by an Iridovirus of family Asfarviridae that exhibits varying virulence between strains and is very hardy to physical and chemical inactivation. No vaccine exists to combat this virus. It does not affect humans nor does it affect other animal species other than pigs and wild boars. The clinical manifestations are fever, skin cyanosis, lymph nodes, kidney and gastrointestinal mucosa bleeding significantly. Mortality is usually close to 100 percent and pigs of all ages are affected.

How do swine become affected?
