A new potential hotbed of swine fever has been discovered in the village of Plop from the northern district of Donduseni. The virus was detected at a pig from a private household.
The police are already checking up the cars entering/exiting the village, while the district authorities have banned any sales of pork.
The animal has been isolated and is supervised by veterinarians.
The first case of swine fever was traced in September 2016, also in Dondușeni district, as other hotbeds were later recorded in the neighboring districts of Soroca and Edineț.
People are recommended not to buy meat from Ukraine.
