African Swine Fever (ASF): 9 more Cases Confirmed in Brandenburg

Another Nine cases of the African swine fever have been confirmed in wild boars in Germany’s eastern Brandenburg region.


According to reports, this has brought the total number of cases confirmed to 80 since September 10,

2020 when the first case was confirmed.


So far, the cases have only been confirmed in wild animals and no farm pigs have been affected.


This has resulted in the ban of imported pork from Germany by China and many other pork buyers especially in Asia; which has led to a spike in the price of Chinese pork and a drop in the price of German's.


Germany has received some "cautious, positive signals" during talks with Asian nations about easing a ban on German pork imposed after African swine fever (ASF) was found in the European country, the agriculture minister said on Friday 16 October 2020.


But despite the Asian export bans, German pig prices remained unchanged this week, with more German pork sales taking place inside the European Union.
