Poland confirms 31 ASF cases in domesticated pigs

 

 

31 African swine fever (ASF) outbreaks have been confirmed in domesticated pigs in Poland so far.

 

Although Poland went several months without detecting ASF cases in domesticated pigs, such cases have now soared since the confirmation of the first one of 2021 in March on a farm with more than 15,000 animals.

 

Some of the cases have been confirmed in areas where the presence of ASF had not previously been detected.

 

As for ASF cases in wild boar, the numbers are steadily increasing. To date, 1,840 cases have been officially recorded in 2021, a large number of them in the west of Poland.
