The owner of the biggest pig farm in Romania, which is also the 2nd
largest in Europe, called for an assessment of damages resulting from
the planned culling of 141 000 pigs located in an outbreak site of
African swine fever [ASF].

The manager of SC TEBU Consult Braila delayed the euthanasia of the
pigs because he needs a clear picture of the damages that will be
incurred by the company, said Gicu Dragan, the director of veterinary
health department.

The ASF infection was confirmed on 3 separate pig farms in Braila
county, comprising more than 35 000 pigs that will be euthanized.

"I believe that the animals in these farms got sick due to the Danube
water. Farms are supplied with water from the Danube," said Dragan,
adding that pig carcasses were found in the Danube. "We killed 29 000
pigs in order to protect these farms. We focuses on land and the virus
came by water," said the official.

In Braila county there are 34 outbreaks of ASF, in 19 localities,
including Braila. Over 30 000 pigs from 3 farms were euthanized up to
now, according to the prefect of the county, George Paladi.

African swine fever is one of the most devastating diseases affecting
pigs. There is no vaccine, but it is not harmful to humans.

Over 350 000 pigs are set to be culled due to the African swine fever
and hundreds of jobs will disappear in Romania, according to Mediafax
newswire.

Romania has been suffering a major ASF event which flared up in June
2018, affecting predominantly backyard farms but also several
commercial enterprises. The main cluster is situated in the south
east, facing the Black Sea, where 659 outbreaks have been reported, so
far, from the counties Tulcea (521 outbreaks), Ialomita (93),
Constanta (27), Braila (16), and Galati (2). Another cluster is
located on the northwestern side, adjacent to the border junction
Romania/Hungary/Ukraine, where 22 outbreaks have been reported from
the county Bihor and 2 from Salaj. For an interactive ASF map,

Romania's last follow-up report on ASF in Braila was submitted on 13
Aug 2018, notifying 13 new outbreaks adjacent to north-west Constanta.
The report, with map, is available at

The current outbreak in the large commercial farm, expected to be
culled, has not yet been reported. - Mod.AS
