Global Disease Surveillance Reports

Monday, November 20, 2017 – Sunday, December 17, 2017

  • Classical Swine Fever (CSF)
  • African Swine Fever (ASF)
  • Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD)

African Swine Fever continues to be a major concern in Eastern Europe and Russia. Forty new cases have been found in wild boar around Warsaw, Poland, the furthest west that this disease has been seen in Poland. This has heightened concern of onward transmission to large commercial farms in western Poland and even East Germany.

Sunday, November 05, 2017 – Sunday, November 19, 2017

  • Classical Swine Fever (CSF)
  • African Swine Fever (ASF)
  • Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD)
Two areas of concern show up in this month’s reports. The first is an outbreak of ASF in Belarus. Though reported in the press, there has been no official report of the disease in the interim. The lack of reporting often reflects a reluctance to put control measures in place. The second is a large outbreak in the Tyumen region of Russia. Outbreaks in Siberia have the added concern of moving within the region towards the pig dense areas in China. The borders of in this region across Russia, Khazakstan, Mongolia and China are uncontrolled in many areas.
