On 15 August, the third outbreak of African swine fever (ASF) in China was reported in Lianyungang, Jiangsu province, about 500 km east of the second outbreak and about 1000 km southwest of the first one. This case affects 615 animals, 88 of which have died and the rest have been culled.

Recall that the first outbreak was notified on August 1 in two farms of the same owner in the city of Shenyang, Liaoning province. The second case was declared at a slaughterhouse in Zhengzhou, Henan province, where the pigs had been transported to from a live animal market located in Jiamusi, more than 2000 km away, in the Heilongjiang province bordering Russia in the northeast of the country. Along the way, these animals crossed areas with quite significant pig density.

The geographical distribution of the outbreaks notified to date and the distance between them, as well as the involvement of a slaughterhouse and a live animals market gives an idea of ​​the magnitude that the disease can reach.
