african swine fever

If you're heading to Russia this winter break, beware of African Swine Fever, or more specifically, beware of those wild boars. They seem to be overstepping their boundaries and spreading the disease. Authorities are keeping an eye on the pig farms.

Why beware? As far as I'm aware, African Swine Fever does not affect humans.
