African swine fever (ASF) appeared for the first time in Romania approximately one year ago, on July 31st, 2017, in the district of Satu Mare.

According to the National Veterinary and Food Safety Authority of Romania (ANSVSA), so far this year, between January 1st and July 25th, 440 outbreaks have been confirmed in domestic pigs: 438 on backyard farms and 2 on commercial farms. Also, during this same period, there were 16 ASF confirmed cases in wild boars.

The disease is spreading in two areas with different dynamics: whilst in the northeast the disease spreads slowly and could even be defined as stable, with a total of 22 confirmed outbreaks (County of Satu Mare: 5 outbreaks on backyard farms and 8 cases in wild boars; County of Bihor: 17 cases on backyard farms and one in wild boars; and County of Salaj: one case in wild boars), in the southeast of Romania, the disease is more aggressive, due to the specificity of the area, with 418 outbreaks: County of Tulcea (397 on backyard farms, 2 on commercial farms of the company SC Carniprod SRL, and 6 cases in wild boars); County of Braila (7 outbreaks on backyard farms); County of Constanta (7 outbreaks on backyard farms) and County of Lalomita (5 outbreaks on backyard farms).
