The actions promoted in the Italian region of Sardinia, where African swine fever (ASF) is endemic, have allowed to contain the disease, limiting considerably its presence in domestic pigs to only some areas of Barbagia and Ogliastra, where the illegal use of wild pastures is still practised, this being the main reason for the spreading of the disease.

In 2013, a period with an intense presence of the virus, 109 outbreaks were recorded, dropping to 40 in 2014, 16 in 2015, 23 in 2016 and 17 in 2017. So far this year, only 3 outbreaks have been detected.

Given these good results in the control of the disease, the European Commission has asked the the veterinary authorities of Sardinia for help to try to stop the alarming spreading of the virus in Romania.
