Vietnam: African Swine Fever in Vietnam

Vietnam is the third country in Asia (after China and Mongolia) to report an outbreak of African swine fever (ASF). ASF spreads quickly in a complicated and unpredictable manner and, in over a month, has been reported in 23 out of the total 63 municipalities and provinces in Vietnam despite the Vietnamese Government’s (GVN) many drastic preventative measures. Recognizing the high risk of ASF spreading and its potential economic impacts, Vietnam’s Prime Minister has urged strong measures to deal with the disease. However, there is a risk that ASF will continue to spread further to other parts of the country.
