An outbreak of African Swine Fever (ASF) has been confirmed in Haiti, the first time since 1984, with a reported 2,500 susceptible animals. The outbreak does not come as a surprise, as the island shares a border with the Dominican Republic, who confirmed an outbreak on July 28. The news comes nearly 3 years after reports of ASF in China said the deadly virus wiped out nearly half the country’s hog herd. To date, ASF has never been found in the United States.
