ASF stands for African swine fever. This disease does not affect human beings. However, farmers cannot export pigs that have contracted the virus because the World Organization for Animal Health세계동물보건기구 restricts this. In a farm in China, 15,000 pigs out of 20,000 died from this virus. This virus could kill a third of China’s pigs and raise pork prices around the world because China has so many pigs.
