Village Pigs Dead in Mali ASF Outbreak

26 February 2016

MALI - Thirty-one village pigs have died as a result of an outbreak of African Swine Fever (ASF) in Mali.

The outbreak, in Ségou, affected the local swine breed, all sex and ages mixed.

There were 130 cases in total, out of a susceptible population of 1003 pigs.

The outbreaks were attributed to introduction of new live animals, illegal movement of animals, contact with infected animals at grazing or watering, and swill feeding.

Movement controls, surveillance, quarantines and zoning are being used to keep the outbreak in check.
