The Veterinarian Authority confirmed on Thursday the existence of a third centre of contagion of swine fever in the Timis county, at one of the farms belonging to the US-based company Smithfield. The Authority also confirmed in August two other swine fever infected farms at the Smithfield farms in Cenei and Igris (same Timis county).

The pigs at the new Igris farm, where the third contagion centre was found, will be sacrificed before the end of the month, immediately after the cremation of the other pigs ends.

The number of animals sacrificed at the first two farms was some 37,000. Adding the third centre, the toll adds up to over 50,000.
