AFRICAN SWINE FEVER - EUROPE (12): POLAND, LITHUANIA, LATVIA

Polish authorities have identified the country's 1st ever case of African swine fever (ASF) to be found in farm pigs, the chief veterinary officer said on Wednesday 23 Jul 2014. Previous cases of ASF, in wild boars, promoted Russia and China to impose restrictions on Polish pork exports, causing a fall in domestic pork prices.

"This is the 1st case of ASF in farm pigs in Poland. The area lies 3-6 km from the border with Belarus. About 200 farm pigs from the danger zone of 7 km (4.3 miles) around the county of Grodek may have to be put down. This is the same area where 9 cases of ASF in wild boars were identified earlier this year [2014].

SWINE DELTA CORONA VIRUS - CANADA (02): (ALBERTA)

Alberta's chief provincial veterinarian announced yesterday [20 May  2014] that swine delta coronavirus (SDCV) is now a reportable disease  in the Canadian province of Alberta. The following was released by Dr  Gerald Hauer, chief provincial veterinarian:

Swine delta coronavirus (SDCV) is a new viral disease of pigs that has  recently has been found in the United States and Ontario. SDCV is from the same family of viruses as porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED) and also
causes severe diarrhea and death in suckling pigs. Any sudden onset of unusual diarrhea should be investigated immediately by a veterinarian.

Transmissible gastroenteritis (TGE) and porcine epidemic diarrhea  (PED) cause very similar symptoms to SDCV. Both are reportable in  Alberta. The government will respond to PED the same as for SDCV, but  does not respond to TGE cases. Lab testing is necessary to confirm the  presence of TGE, PED, or SDCV.
