Vietnam: Vietnam African Swine Fever Update

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

African swine fever (ASF) was first detected in Vietnam in February 2019 and has spread to all 63 provinces in Vietnam. ASF in Vietnam has led to the death and culling of about 5.9 million pigs or about 22 percent of the total swine population, pushing prices to record highs. Immediate impacts due to ASF have been felt by different sectors of the economy though it is challenging to quantify the cumulative economy-wide losses to date. ASF is expected to continue to affect Vietnam’s swine sector and the economy at large. The end of the ASF outbreak cannot be predicted, although the rate of reported cases appears to be slowing.
