Greece has detected a type of swine fever in wild boar in the north of the country, according to the World Organisation for Animal Health. The disease, harmless to humans but highly contagious among pigs, was found in a dead wild boar in a forest in the Serres region. Reuters reports that WOAH said the case was the first since early 2020, when Greece faced its first-ever outbreak of the disease. Greece’s agriculture ministry also announced the new outbreak in a statement, saying measures were being taken to avert the spread of the disease.
