    Abstract

    African swine fever virus (ASFV) causes a severe hemorrhagic fever in domestic pigs. The disease was introduced from the African continent to Georgia in 2007 and has since spread throughout the Caucasus and the Russian Federation. ASF is now established in Eastern Europe and outbreaks have occurred in domestic pigs and wild boar in Poland and the Baltic countries in 2014. Therefore, there is an increased risk of further transmission across Europe. The present study investigates the properties and the effect of the circulating ASF virus strain in Danish pregnant sows
