By The Assam Tribune

AIZAWL, May 23 - Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) has claimed the lives of over 2,854 swine in Mizoram during the last one and a half month, according to Champhai District Vawkvulh Association or Champhai District Pig Rearers Association today.

Of the total swine deaths, the Mizoram-Myanmar border Champhai district accounted for the highest toll at 2,684, Association sources said.

The number of swine deaths has been steadily decreasing in Champhai town and surrounding villages since the last one week even as the area was the hardest hit since the outbreak of the dreaded PRRS.

This was the second PRRS outbreak in the State and the first outbreak during March-April in 2013 killed over 3,000 pigs in six out of eight districts in Mizoram. � PTI
