Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to provide characteristics of the spread of African Swine Fever (ASF) in Poland from February to August, 2014. The samples from dead wild boar and domestic pigs were submitted to the National Veterinary Research Institute, National Reference Laboratory for ASF in Pulawy, Poland, for testing by PCR and ELISA methods. In the studied period, fourteen cases of ASF in wild boar and two outbreaks in backyard pigs were confirmed. In addition to the results of laboratory tests performed in 2014, the article describes the ASF surveillance programme in wild boar and pigs in Poland carried out in 2011-2013. The spread of ASF in Poland is compared with the epidemiological situation in Lithuania, Latvia, Belarus and the Russian Federation.
