Current ASF situation in the European Union

Data published by the European Union’s Animal Disease Notification System (ADNS) for the first nine months of this year show a total of 8,567 reported cases in wild boar and 862 outbreaks in domestic pigs.

It seems to be more controlled in domestic animals, where the number of outbreaks is falling following the peaks of 2018 and 2019, although cases have notably increased during this last quarter (346 outbreaks as of June 2020 vs. 862 at the end of September).
