The disease was detected in domestic indigenous breed of pigs reared under a free range system in a communal set up. The disease was first detected in villages along the northern border with Mozambique.

The country last reported cases of African swine fever (ASF) in this area more than 10 years ago. The whole of Mount Darwin district has been placed under quarantine with movement of swine and swine products not being allowed in or out of the district.

Weekly inspections are currently on going in the affected villages and neighbouring properties within a 20km radius. Infected carcasses are being disposed of through burning and burying.
