Pork production is an important part of livestock farming. Pigs have a stronger potential to help farmers achieve a faster return than other larger livestock species due to natural characteristics such as high fecundity, improved feed conversion efficiency, early maturity, and a short generation gap. Vaccines are used to control many swine diseases. Nonetheless, viral illnesses, such as the recent epidemic of African Swine Fever, caused economic losses as well as food chain disruption in various nations. As a result, where vaccines are not available, one of the primary control techniques is thorough diagnosis and surveillance. This Special Issue is intended to include research and review articles in the following areas:
- Swine viral diseases;
- Epidemiological surveillance of swine diseases;
- Diagnosis of swine viral diseases;
- Emerging and reemerging infectious disease of swine;
- Zoonotic viral diseases of swine;
- Vaccines development for swine viral diseases.
