Battling the spread of African swine fever in China is “very complex and challenging”, the country’s agriculture ministry said after chairing a meeting of over a dozen major government bodies.

Two new outbreaks of the disease, which can be deadly to pigs, were reported on Friday in the Inner Mongolia region and Henan provinces.
