African Swine Fever in Eastern Europe – impact, current situation and possible solutions for swine industry
African Swine Fever Virus has infected the continents of Africa, Europe and Asia, including many countries like
Ukraine and China. The introduction of ASFV would be catastrophic to the swine industry and national economy in the US with
economic losses likely to exceed 4 to 5 billion dollars. Many countries are raising pigs in this endemic areas and producing ASF
virus free animals. For pig producers and veterinarians in US there are lessons in everything from countries that are endemic.

Selected transboundary diseases in swine: Threats to animal health and the economies of Indiana and USA
The announcement by The World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) in August 2018 that African Swine Fever Virus (ASFV) was confirmed in China raised concerns that this reportable pathogen of swine would likely gain entry into the United States (US). African Swine Fever Virus causes significant economic losses due to death of infected pigs, subsequent virus elimination by “stamping out” of infected animals from premises and trade restrictions that are imposed when a country or territory is determined to be virus positive. Concerns expressed by state and federal veterinarians and swine producers about ASFV, CSF, PRV and other transboundary disease introduction to US are legitimate.
