The number of active African Swine Fever (ASF) outbreaks in Romania continues to remain high. At the end of October 2021, there was a 43 percent surge in the number of outbreaks from the same time in 2020.
Vietnam is an emerging economy in Southeast Asia that has experienced rapid growth and development during the last few decades. As has historically been the case in many countries, growth in animal-based protein consumption has gone hand-in-hand with this economic development.
In 2020, the African Swine Fever (ASF) epidemic in Vietnam caused a loss of about 86,000 pigs, equivalent to 1.5 percent of the culled pigs in 2019. ASF outbreaks continue to recur but most of them are sporadic, small-scale, and quickly contained.
