Sometimes the name of a disease is misleading like African swine fever, or Spanish Flu or Japanese Flu. The first origin of African swine fever was discovered in Africa but like other diseases has spread across the globe.

"Historically, outbreaks have been reported in Africa and parts of Europe, South America, and the Caribbean. More recently (since 2007) the disease has been reported in multiple countries across Africa, Asia and Europe, in both domestic and wild pigs."

Report on African swine fever April 26th - May 9th, 2019
