AFRICAN SWINE FEVER CONTINUES RAPID ADVANCE IN CHINA AS EUROPE'S INFECTION RATE CRAWLS
Source: Pork Checkoff

African swine fever (ASF) continues to spread rapidly across commercial pig farms across nearly the entirety of China. The official reports from the World Health Organization (OIE) now say there are more than 50 cases confirmed in 14 provinces, including ones in the pig-dense areas. The disease could possibly spread to neighboring countries of Vietnam, an emerging U.S. pork market, and Laos.

Meanwhile across the Atlantic in Europe, ASF continues its slow spread primarily via feral pig populations. The virus remains very limited in Belgium, but other states such as Poland, Ukraine, Romania, the Baltics, Bulgaria and points east remain active.
