Quarantine and inspection measures continue for a second day following the country's first outbreak of African swine fever (ASF) in more than a year confirmed Friday at a pig farm in Hwacheon, Gangwon Province.


Provincial authorities said Saturday they are conducting tests on over one thousand pigs raised at 116 farms in eight cities and counties near Hwacheon or close to the inter-Korean border.


Quarantine efforts are also under way to prevent a further spread as movement restrictions are imposed on all livestock vehicles at the 116 farms.


Fences and nets are also being set up...
