Last August 31st, and after a notification due to an increase in morbidity on a backyard farm, the National Reference Laboratory of Bulgaria confirmed the presence, for the first time, of African swine fever in this country.

The backyard farm, with 7 susceptible animals and 4 cases, is located in Tutrakantsi, Provadia, in the province of Varna.

A protection area with a 3-km radius and a surveillance area with a 10-km radius around the outbreak have been established that include the municipalities of Provadia, Avren, Dolni Chiflik and Dulgopol, all of them in the province of Varna.

In the village of Tutrakantsi, 56 animals have been slaughtered, many of them not registered; samples are being taken from the animals in Bozveliysko, within the 3-km protection area, and the sampling within the 10-km area will be started.

Although the origin of the infection is unknown, there is, according to the Bulgarian government, a founded suspicion that the infection in the backyard farm in Tutrakantsi may have been due to the purchase of feed from Constanta (Romania) that is distributed in Bulgaria.
