Serbia reported four suspected outbreaks of African swine fever (ASF) among backyard pigs, the Paris-based World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) said on Monday.
A report from Serbia’s agriculture ministry said three of the cases were detected in the Belgrade area and one in the district of Podunavski, Reuters reports.
The outbreaks have killed seven pigs while another 114 were slaughtered according to Reuters.
ASF is a deadly virus that impacts both domestic and wild pigs. It does not have a vaccine or a cure. The disease is currently not in the U.S. It does not impact people and poses no risk to food safety.
