Floods seen as a cause for fresh African swine fever outbreak in China

Heavy rains and flooding since mid-June appear to have triggered fresh cases of the deadly African swine fever in some parts of southern China, analysts and industry experts have said. A survey of small pig farmers, corporate farmers, traders and slaughterhouses in 20 provinces revealed dozens of cases had occurred since the heavy rains in Guangdong province, the Guangxi region and other areas.

No. The outbreak is due to China not following herd segregation and sanitation practices. The river would not have been able to cause a fresh outbreak if China had good herd sanitation practices to begin with.
