Poland has reported an ASF outbreak in an 8000-herd pig farm. According to the World Organization for Animal Health, the virus killed 61 pigs in an 8000-head farm, which has since destroyed its remaining stock. This is the third ASF outbreak in the country’s domestic pig herd. Poland is one of the world’ leading pork producers, but its exports are limited by ASF-related import bans imposed by several trading partners, most notably in Asia.
