Once again, only one European state has officially reported new cases of African swine fever over the past week.

Romania is the only European country to have reported new outbreaks in domestic pigs to the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE). Two backyard herds were affected in the south of the country — one in each of the counties of Buzau and Dambovita. The outbreaks involved a total of 25 pigs, two of which died.
