APHIS adds Moldova to the List of Regions Affected by African Swine Fever


The U.S. Department of Agriculture‚Äôs (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) added Moldova to a list of regions considered affected with African swine fever (ASF).  We are taking this action because of the confirmation of ASF in Moldova. ASF is a highly contagious disease of wild and domestic swine that can spread rapidly in swine populations with extremely high rates of morbidity and mortality.  A list of regions where ASF exists or is reasonably believed to exist is maintained on the APHIS Web site at

USDA is an equal opportunity provider, employer, and lender.
