First Pig Virus Detected in India
For the first time in Mizoram and perhaps in the country, virus of a pandemic disease which causes reproductive failure in breeding stock and respiratory tract illness in young pigs has been detected in the samples of sick swine sent to laboratories for testing.

The samples of the sick swine were sent to the laboratories following the death of hundreds of swine in Mizoram during the past few months. Following the detection of the pig virus also known as PRRS virus, the current ban on import of pigs from Myanmar would be in place for a longer time in the state.
District Magistrates of Mizoram's districts adjoining Myanmar had issued prohibit orders banning import of pigs in May last.
