Dr. Solenne Costard, senior consultant at EpiX Analytics, was interviewed in a magazine article on African Swine Fever (ASF). The article discusses the ongoing ASF epidemic in Asia, where its rapid spread is causing devastation to the pig industry and affecting the global pork market. Solenne explained why the disease is so hard to control, why it requires tight collaboration between the pig industry and government authorities, and how human behavior can affect the spread of the disease.
If you are interested in learning more about ASF, Solenne has co-authored several scholarly articles in ASF epidemiology, risk assessment, and epidemic modeling that can help you put this outbreak in perspective.
