A stochastic network-based model to simulate farm-level transmission of African swine fever virus in Vietnam

Share this to :

African swine fever virus is highly contagious, and mortality rates reach up to 100% depending on the host, virus dose, and the transmission routes. The main objective of this study was to develop a network-based simulation model for the farm-level transmission of African swine fever virus to evaluate the impact of changes in farm connectivity on African swine fever spread in Vietnam.
