ASF Russia: Vet service criticised as outbreaks continue

Fonte: pigprogress.net

Several new African Swine Fever (ASF) outbreaks have been recently registered in Russia, raising questions over the efficiency of the national veterinary services.

According to official figures by the Russian veterinary service Rosselhoznadzor, by mid-April 2021, Russia had registered 36 ASF outbreaks since the beginning of 2021. From those figures emerges a picture of a disease that has gained momentum since 2018, when only 56 outbreaks were reported in the country in the whole year.
