China has banned the imports of pigs, wild boars and related products from Slovakia. The reason is to prevent the spread of African swine fever from the European country, the Reuters newswire reported, referring to China’s customs.
China, the world’s largest pig producer, is also battling the highly contagious disease, which has been detected in every province and region on its mainland, as well as on Hainan island and Hong Kong, since it was first detected in August 2018, Reuters reported.
Belarus also banned imports of pigs from Slovakia and Bulgaria.
