Six new outbreaks of ASF reported in Bulgaria

Bulgaria has reported new outbreaks of African Swine Fever among backyard pigs in six villages in the northern region of Pleven, the country’s national food safety agency said.

Reuters reported that all pigs in the six villages where outbreaks were confirmed will be culled and a three-kilometre quarantine zone will be established around the village, the agency said in a statement.

Three other cases in the region of Pleven were confirmed last week. The agency warned farmers not to hide their backyard pigs or try to transport them out of the villages and sell them as such actions may further spread the disease.
