Abstract

“African swine fever (ASF) is one of the most severe infectious diseases of pigs with high-mortality, which seriously disrupts regional, national and international trade with live animals and animal products and thus has a negative impact on the socio-economic aspects on pig farming. The paper is focused on the analysis of potential risk factors of introduction of ASF virus into the pig farms work processed on the basis of our and foreign literary sources (PubMed). The main potential risk factors for the introduction of the African swine fever virus into pig farms are as follows: epizootological situation, pig density, presence of hosts and vectors, farming system, farm size, contact with wild animals and other domestic animals, direct contact with persons, contaminated vehicles, feed and water, sharing tools and equipment, inefficient or absence of disinfection, insect control and rodent control.
