ASF confirmed in wild boar in Brandenburg

The German Ministry of Agriculture reported a suspected case of African pig fiber (ASF) for the state of Brandenburg yesterday evening.
It is a dead wild boar that was found near the Polish border. Employees at the Friedrich Loeffler Institute are currently examining a sample. The Südeutsche Zeitung has just confirmed that the suspicion has been confirmed.
Germany had long feared that the ARSP would come to Germany from Poland. Several ASF cases were confirmed there - 10 kilometers from the German border. Wild boars could also carry the virus into livestock populations.
ASF is not dangerous for humans, but many countries impose a ban on imports from the affected countries if the virus is also detected in feeder populations.
After the virus appeared in China in mid-2018, millions of pigs died there or were culled to prevent the disease from spreading. More than half of the largest pig herd in the world had to be disposed of.
Now one has to fear that China and other importing nations will exclude Germany from pork deliveries.Germany is one of the most important pork suppliers on the world market. This would result in painful losses for pig farmers in Germany.
Between January and April 2020, Germany exported 158,000 tons of pork worth 424 million euros. That was twice as much as in the same period in 2019. Ironically, the export boom is due to the fact that in China the consequences of the mass culling because of the ASF were extremely high prices.
