The South Korean agriculture ministry said Friday it was probing two more suspected cases of African swine fever after samples from two farms tested positive.
The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs said it was testing samples from three dead pigs found on two farms in Paju near the border with North Korea, according to the Yonhap news agency.
The city reported the country’s first case of what is a highly contagious and deadly pig disease on Tuesday.
The second case came from the neighboring town of Yeoncheon.
As of Friday, the ministry has culled over 10,000 pigs.
