African Swine Fever confirmed in Serbia


After more than a week of speculation, the official confirmation arrived yesterday: African Swine Fever virus (ASFv) has also reached Serbia late July.


The virus is lately flaring up in many countries in Eastern Europe. Last week, reports came through of in total 130,000 pigs having to be culled in Bulgaria. In addition, recently, the virus also was confirmed in Slovakia.

All in all, it means that since the introduction of ASF in 2007 in the Caucasian area, now 16 European countries have had to face the virus in its wild boar or domestic pig herd population – or both.
