At the beginning of October veterinary authorities of the island of Sardinia informed of new cases of African swine fever. In all of the cases the animals have been slaughtered. The surprise this time was the outbreak that appeared on a farm with 3.900 head, all of which were slaughtered.

In the last few years, African swine fever has been considered endemic in Sardinia and only appeared on small family farms, therefore the appearance of the disease on a large swine farm is considered worrisome.

After these cases were discovered, movement of animals in over 100 farms has been blocked (Nuoro, Oristano, Olbia Monti, Telti Loiri Porto San Paolo, etc.).
