ASF: Essential steps to beat the persistent threat

“During winter time, the African swine fever virus may persist up to five months in the bone marrow of a wild boar's carcass”

A significant reduction in Europe’s wild boar populations and good biosecurity on all swine farms are necessary steps to combat African swine fever, Professor Zygmunt Pejsak emphasises in this Meet The Expert podcast. Professor Pejsak was head of the swine diseases department at the National Veterinary Institute in Poland when ASF first entered the country across its Eastern border. He discusses strategic options against the disease and makes the case for having effective surveillance in any affected or potentially affected country to control the possible introduction of a novel virus genotype.
