France erects fences against the ASF at the Belgian border

France wants to protect itself against the spread of highly infectious African swine fever (ASF) by building fences on the border with Belgium. The virus could disrupt the European pig industry.
France has been on alert since September in Belgium, near the border with France, in wild boars the deadly viral disease was detected. Belgium has already received a trade ban from China and South Korea.
After the controls in north-eastern France have been strengthened and there is a hunting ban, the French want to build a fence in four vulnerable zones on the Belgian border by the end of next week. This was reported by the prefecture in Meurthe-et-Moselle.
Western European countries have done much to prevent the spread of ASF. For pigs, the disease is always deadly, people can not harm the virus. In Eastern Europe, there are a variety of ASF cases.
Belgium reported dozens of wild boar ASF cases in September. As a precaution, thousands of domestic swine were culled in the affected areas.
In China, the world's largest pig producer, more ASF cases were discovered today.There are no vaccines against the ASF, which makes it extremely difficult to protect against the spread of the disease.
