New outbreak of African swine fever reported in Mykolayiv region

A new outbreak of African swine fever (ASF) has been confirmed in Nova Odessa town, the Mykolaiv region, head of veterinary medicine in the Mykolaiv region Oleh Kalnaus has said, Ukrinform has reported.

Measures are being taken to localize and prevent spread of the ASF pathogen. The situation is complicated by the fact that a national highway passes through the town of Nova Odesa to the capital city of Kyiv. Special permissions are required to set up checkpoints for relevant measures. Local authorities are working to resolve this issue now.

In 2016, the ASF case was reported at Partyzanska Iskra farm located in the village of Krynka in the Mykolayiv region. Nine out of 125 pigs were destroyed at the farm.
