Croatia confirms 59 outbreaks of ASF

According to information published by the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, since June 27, when the Official Veterinary Services of Croatia reported the first two outbreaks of African swine fever (ASF), 59 outbreaks have been reported through the EU Animal Diseases Information System (ADIS) as of July 18, 2023.

The outbreaks have been confirmed on domestic pig farms located in the Vukovarsko-Srijemska region and in the Brod Posavina region, which are located in the border area with Bosnia-Herzegovina and Serbia, both countries affected by the disease. Most of the affected farms are medium or small farms with low biosecurity, but large farms with a priori good biosecurity have also been affected.

As of July 18, two PCR-positive wild boars have been detected in two areas a little further west, in the border area with Bosnia-Herzegovina.
