Indonesian authorities are investigating the deaths of about 880 pigs on the island of Bali, the director of animal health at the Ministry of Agriculture said on Wednesday (Feb 5), to determine if they died of African swine fever (ASF).


The pigs died between December and January.


ASF has killed more than 43,000 pigs in Indonesia's North Sumatra province, forcing the government to isolate affected areas, but there has been no confirmed outbreak on Bali.



"We are working to stop the deaths of pigs with operational standards for infectious animal diseases such as for the ASF and hog cholera, while we determine whether the cause was truly ASF or something else," said Mr Fadjar Sumping Tjatur Rassa, the director of animal health.


ASF has swept across China since being first detected there in August last year, slashing the world's top pig herd by more than 40 per cent.


China in December banned imports of pigs, wild boars and related products from Indonesia due to ASF.
