South Korea remains on high alert for African swine fever, since a second case of the disease was confirmed yesterday, at a pig farm near the inter-Korean border.
Despite no new cases being reported since then, the government plans to cull around fifteen-thousand pigs from farms in the area as a precaution.
A nationwide lockdown on pig farms was lifted this morning, but there's still a ban on pork shipments from six tightly-controlled-zones for the next three weeks.
The government has also temporarily closed the DMZ Peace Trail in Paju and Cheorwon.
The origin of the outbreak is still unknown.
African swine fever is highly contagious and fatal to pigs, but doesn't affect humans.
