The outbreak of African Swine Fever on a small backyard farm in Greece for now appears to have been an isolated case. Additional research has not demonstrated a spread.
Immediately after the discovery of the outbreak on February 3, protective measures were put in place. The farm, in Nikoklia village, near the town Serres in northern Greece, had 32 pigs of which 1 had died of African Swine Fever. The authorities had animals culled in a 3km radius around the farm and transport bans were put in place in a 10km radius around the farm.
