Second case of swine fever detected in Lithuania

One more case of African swine fever (ASF) has been detected in Lithuania.

The virus, that causes mass death rates in pigs, was found in a farmstead in the Utena district, the Ministry of Agriculture said on Wednesday.

According to the Ministry, the farmer's pigs were treated with antibiotics but later died due to the disease. It's been confirmed the pigs suffered a case of African swine fever.

Currently, veterinary specialists are counting pigs and taking samples for laboratory tests within the radius of three and ten kilometers. Having received the results of the tests, farmers will be recommended to slaughter pigs.

African swine fever was detected on one of Lithuania's largest pig farms last month sparking mass death rates in pigs. A state of emergency was declared in large areas of the country to prevent the spread of the outbreak.

Polish and Baltic officials have also drawn up plans to combat the spread of the disease.
