83 Animals Euthanized Because of African Swine Fever Near Varna, Bulgaria

The National Reference Laboratory confirmed the presence of African swine fever in the village of Tutrakantsi.

Bulgarian Food Safety Agency commented that all possible measures have been taken to avoid the infection of animals, but the virus is too aggressive. Once the outbreak had been established, immediate measures have been taken - the 3 km safety zone of the village of Tutrakantsi and the village of Bozveliysko has been imposed.

From Friday, the inspectors euthanized 83 animals. The area is disinfected and safe and the restraining measures remain for 3 km and the 10 km zone around the outbreak of the disease. Taking samples from domestic animals is continuing, but the Agency assured that until animals are tested positive, they will not be killed.

Due to the Agency information campaign, the owner of the animals called the veterinarian who filed a signal of a doubt. The agency stressed that transporters of the disease, except for pigs, are also foxes, and dogs, Actualno reported.
