New cases of AFP in North Eastern Europe

First September half at least 5 new cases of AFP

The African swine fever has set in the border regions of the Baltic States and Poland to Russia. Alone in the Sept 2014, 5 new cases of infected wild boar are found and confirmed in the recent period.  Attacks on the House pig To find occasionally in the so-called backyard attitudes Instead of. In addition, larger stable units with more than 15,000 animals have been affected.

Belarus reported no swine fever cases for political reasons. The accumulation around the compelling conclusion however, permit to the borders of this country, that is to be expected in this area with the African swine fever, without being publicly known.
