    ROME (Reuters) – African swine fever has been found in a wild boar in Italy’s capital Rome, the regional government said in a statement on Thursday.

    An isolated outbreak of the deadly hog disease was reported in northwest Italy at the start of the year and the Rome case was the first time the illness had been detected in the centre of the country.

    Several thousand boar are believed to live in and around Rome, foraging for food in often overflowing rubbish bins. Officials carried out tests after a dead boar was discovered in the north of the city, and found it had swine fever...

      The animal was found in the Insugherata natural park, the epidemiological investigation is still ongoing. At the moment it is hypothesized that the introduction of the ASF virus is purely due to human factors. The analyses confirmed the positivity for genotype 2 as reported, the same strain currently circulating in Europe.

          African swine fever detected in pig livestock near Rome for first time
          Thu, June 9, 2022 at 1:38 PM·1 min read

          ROME (Reuters) - Two cases of swine fever have been found in pigs at a farm near Rome, local media quoted health authorities as saying on Thursday, the first time in Italy that the African disease has spread from wild boar to livestock.

          Alessio D'Amato, a health official of the Lazio region of which Rome is the capital, was quoted as telling La Repubblica newspaper that pigs on the farm will be culled...

            Italy to kill 1,000 pigs in swine fever outbreak
            Published June 10, 2022, 6:25 PM
            by Agence-France-Presse


            ROME, Italy — A thousand pigs will be slaughtered after two cases of swine fever were detected on a farm in Rome’s Lazio region, officials said Friday, spurring fears of a blow to the country’s pork industry.

            “We have to slaughter all the pigs in the contaminated area very quickly,” Angelo Ferrari, tasked with managing the crisis, told AGI news agency.

            The local health agency estimated 1,000 pigs would have to be culled to stem the spread, he said.

            “The sooner we act decisively and incisively, the greater our hope that the commercial damage will be reduced,” he said.

            Italy, with about 8.9 million pigs, is the seventh biggest pork producer in the European Union, representing an eight-billion-euro ($9.1 billion) industry, according to the agricultural association Confagricoltura.

            The two case of African swine fever detected in Lazio are the first among farmed pigs in Italy. Before that, cases were detected in wild boar in January in northern Italy, then in the Lazio region...

              The swine fever epidemics in Lazio and Piedmont have different origins: because it is good news

              Editorial board Wednesday, August 3, 2022 - 4:02 pm

              PIEDMONT - The genetic investigations conducted by the Experimental Zooprophylactic Institute of Abruzzo and Molise which is based in Teramo, have established with certainty that the outbreak of African Swine Fever (ASF) that has affected the suidae in Rome and Lazio is of a cluster of different viral genotype compared to the cluster responsible for the spread of the disease in Piedmont and Liguria. The analyzes undoubtedly show that the two outbreaks are not connected to each other as they are due to introductions of the virus from different sources.

              “ It is a positive fact, which demonstrates the effectiveness of the containment and isolation actions carried out in the Piedmont and Ligurian territory in terms of control and contrast to the spread of the disease. The difference between the two viruses, in fact, has also been recognized at the biomolecular level. Although they belong to the same strain, the two viruses, in fact, have different mutations “, declared the Undersecretary of State at the Ministry of Health delegated to the PSA emergency, Andrea Costa and the extraordinary Commissioner for the PSA emergency, Angelo Ferrari.

              The one provided by the Teramo Institute is an encouraging fact in the struggle for the eradication of the disease and demonstrates the goodness of the work carried out by the national network of Experimental Zooprophylactic Institutes.
