New cases of AFP in Lithuania and Russia

new cases of African swine fever in Russia and Lithuania confirmed

After end of may of new cases of African swine fever in feral pigs in Russia and Poland had been reported new cases are added. 5 new findings in wild boar were observed until June 19 in Russia alone.

A new outbreak has been confirmed in Lithuania, close to the border with Belarus. in addition to 3 found dead wild boar 3 pigs in backyard attitudes were tested positive. With Lithuania an another EU Member State is affected after Poland has been proven by the AFP. The Government has now set up areas under EU law. Additional protective measures have been initiated.

The current findings provide a reaffirmation of their import barriers for pork from the EU for the Russian veterinary authority. The reasons are that the EU itself is not sufficiently capable of is to know the infection situation in the country and to monitor. due to the free movement of goods in the EU, it was not ensured that infected material through import from the EU could reach Russia.

The observation that the swine fever cases in Russia, Poland and Lithuania are always close to the Belarusian border, on the territory but never a case of Belarus has been reported is weird. When a stray wild boar population that's plenty weird.

For Germany, it means all possible transmission routes to avoid for the umpteenth time. No leftovers should be disposed of careless passenger transport such as migrant workers, farmhand, guest hunters, tourists, truck drivers, etc. from the affected areas close to Pigpens. The disinfection measures are carefully watching. Do not lightly precautionary measures should be taken, as a train of infected with African swine fever in this country would wreak havoc in an exporting country for at least 3 years.
