A new African Swine Fever outbreak has been detected in Nulvi by the veterinarians of the ASL of Sassari. The presence of the virus was confirmed last January 2nd 2014 by the technicians of the IZS of Sassari. It is the first case this year.

A total of 10 pigs have been slaughtered and destroyed. In the protection area (3 km) there are 44 farms, whilst in the surveillance area (10 km) there are 269 farms.

The Prevention Department is carrying out a complete epidemiologic investigation that could include, apart from the lack of an economic compensation, administrative fines and criminal accusations in the case of serious and/or deliberate negligence.

The Veterinary Service has recorded, up to this date, 17 ASF virus positive wild boars from a total of 45 checked wild boars only in the town of Nulvi. In the light of the difficult epidemiologic situation and the high risk of transmission to other pig farms, it has been decided to revoke the 32 permissions for the exceptional hunting in this area that had already been issued by the Veterinary Service after hearing the Forestry Service and the Surveillance Board.
