AUSTRALIA - Pigs affected by the A(H1N1) flu in the Goulburn Valley, have recovered from the virus.

The piggery at near Shepparton in northern Victoria was placed in quarantine three weeks ago, after breeding females pigs got sick.

The Department of Primary Industries says all of the pigs at the property are healthy and have not had flu symptoms for about a week.

According to ABC, the piggery will remain in quarantine for another two weeks, in line with national health guidelines.
