- A non‐haemadsorbing (non‐HAD) ASF virus (ASFV) genotype II, namely Lv17/WB/Rie1, was isolated from a hunted wild boar in Latvia in 2017. Domestic pigs experimentally infected with the non‐HAD ASFV developed a nonspecific or subclinical form of the disease. Two months later, these animals were fully protected when exposed to other domestic pigs infected with a related virulent HAD genotype II ASFV.
