Russia Quarantines Another Farming Region on African Swine Fever

July 20 (Bloomberg) -- Russia’s regional Governor Vasily Galuskin banned the transportation of hogs and the sale of pork in southern Volgograd because of African swine fever outbreaks, making it the second such area under quarantine this week.

The transportation of hogs, wild boars and their meat was banned yesterday in the Tver region, northwest of Moscow, because of outbreaks of the virus, according to Rosselkhoznadzor, Russia’s food safety authority.

Swine fever is a viral disease that’s lethal for pigs and harmless for humans, according to the United Nations’ Food & Agriculture Organization.
