In a report posted on Jan. 7, 2022, ANSA said tests were done by the Zooprophylactic Institute of Umbria and Marche. The results were shared with the Italian Ministry of Health; the agency is responsible for notifying OIE as well as the European Commission.

      This morning (1/10/2022), additional reporting revealed two other wild boar carcasses were found in Piedmont and Isola del Cantone in the province of Genoa, respectively, both suspected, but not yet confirmed, to have ASF. Another news source indicated three additional wild boar carcass findings, saying, “The discovery of two of the animals along the Bocchetta road between the San Giorgio bridge and the Carossina farmhouse, the third wild boar was found in Val Morsone, near the provincial road, in the locality of Fontana. A hand [sic] was taken from all three carcasses which will be analyzed and then, according to current provisions, as confirmed by the mayor of Voltaggio, Giuseppe Benasso, they were buried with the use of lime.”...
