  • Russia. The authorities ordered the culling of all the pigs at the Plemzavod Industrialny in the Krasnodar region following an outbreak of African Swine Fever (ASF).
    • The pig farm culled all of its 30,736 hogs, having initially been ordered to kill half of its stock.
    • Further cases have now been reported in other regions.
    • Samples taken from pigs in the Stavropol region, and from wild boars in the Astrakhan region have tested positive for ASF.
    • There have been several outbreaks of ASF in more than a quarter of Russia’s 83 regions since 2007, reports said.
    • ASF spreads extremely rapidly because it’s highly contagious and has a complex epidemiology.
    • The virus can survive in a protein environment, especially in meat and meat products, for long periods.
    • The disease mortality rate is almost 100 percent.
    • ASF has no vaccine as of now.
