ASF rocks Indonesia

A resurgence of African swine fever has claimed tens of thousands of pigs on Indonesia's southern East Nusa Tenggara region.

It seemed to be gone by late last year but has flared up again. The death toll could me much greater than official estimates because authorities said many farmers are not reporting outbreaks.

Farmer on the island of Flores have lost about 40 per cent of their pigs with 35,000 deaths reported since February of 2020.
