The area infected with African swine fever (ASF) has been further expanded in Hungary, with measures primarily affecting game farmers, the National Food Chain Safety Authority (Nebih) published on its website.

According to the report, laboratory tests confirmed ASF in several wild boar bodies found along the Tisza. Due to new cases and the risk posed by the Tisza as a source of mediation, the national classical swine fever and African swine fever expert group changed the risk classification of several areas from high risk to infected at its August 28 meeting.
