According to the data of the OIE/WOAH and of the Ministry of Agriculture of Japan, there are already 10 domestic pig farms affected by classical swine fever after its re-emergence last September after 26 years without cases of the disease.

The disease has already been detected in the prefectures of Gifu, Aichi, Nagano, Shiga and Osaka.

We must highlight the outbreak confirmed last week on a farm with more than 13,000 animals located in the city of Tahara (Aichi). So far, it is the largest farm affected by CSF.

The 10 outbreaks detected on pig farms have involved more than 47,000 susceptible animals.

Regarding the spreading of the disease among the wild boar population, up to of February 12th, 783 wild boars (81 dead and 657 captured) in the prefecture of Gifu have been tested, and since September 13th, 133 (43 dead and 90 captured) have been positive to CSF with RT-PCR. 59 wild boars (14 dead and 45 captured) in the prefecture of Aichi have been tested, and since September 14th, 10 have been positive (1 dead and 9 captured). In other prefectures, 172 dead wild boars in 36 prefectures have been tested, and since September 14th, all of them have been negative with RT-PCR.

The map shows the total number of wild boars found dead or captured positive to the disease, as well as the pig farms affected (highlighted in yellow) up to February 15th, 2019.
