(MENAFN) On Wednesday Bulgaria's Food Safety Agency said in a statement on its website that, a second outbreak of African swine fever in domestic pigs was confirmed in Bulgaria.

The statement also said that 14 pigs were fattened in a small farm in the village of Zhernov near Danube River, some 210 km northeast of Sofia and that's where the disease has been found.

All actions have been taken to eliminate the outbreak and stop its spreading such as setting up a safety zone and an observation area around the outbreak, the statement said that there were no industrial pig farms in the observation area.
