Hong Kong: Second African Swine Fever Case in Hong Kong

Hong Kong confirmed the second case of African Swine Fever in the city’s largest slaughterhouse on May 31, 2019 just three weeks after confirmation of the first case. The Hong Kong government indicated that the pig came from a farm in Meichow, a city in the northeast of Guangdong province in mainland China. The incident led to the culling of the 4,100 pigs in the slaughterhouse and the closing of the facility for disinfection, which is expected to take four days. China has suspended all live pig supplies to Hong Kong for the time being.
