What’s the best way to rid a deadly disease found in pigs? Burn them alive in a machine dug pit, then bury the surviving pigs with dirt.
China reported an outbreak of deadly African swine fever on a huge foreign-invested Chinese pig farm, part-owned by a Danish investment fund. The pig farm has 4,686 infected out of 15,000. All animals on infected farms must be culled under current rules. The farm is the largest yet to be hit by the disease, which has infected almost 100 farms across China since August 2018, spreading faster than in any other country to date.
China has the world’s largest hog herd and the rapid spread of African swine fever has roiled the country’s trade in pork, the nation’s most popular meat, disrupting supplies and pushing up prices in some areas. The African swine fever situation is only getting worse. Small farms, big farms, slaughterhouses, feed – the whole production chain all are infected.
I wonder if the reason Muslims don’t eat pork is because the pig is just a filthy, worm ridden, disease carrying animal.
