The African Swine Fever virus, ASFV, is a double-stranded DNA virus that replicates in the cytoplasm of infected cells. It can affect most pigs, wild and domesticated, as well as soft ticks. It is the only virus with a DNA genome that is transmitted by arthropods. The virus causes a lethal hemorrhagic disease in domestic pigs which sometimes leads to death in as little as a week. In every other species the virus causes no discernible disease. The virus is endemic to Sub-Saharan Africa...
