Germany has Another African Swine Fever Case in Farm Pigs

A third case of African swine fever (ASF) was confirmed over the weekend in farm pigs in the eastern German state of Brandenburg, German authorities said.

The case was on a small farm with four pigs inside the restriction zone where the disease is common among wild boar, the Brandenburg state health ministry said.

ASF was found in two nearby farms late last week.

China and a series of other pork buyers banned imports of German pork in September 2020 after the first case was confirmed in wild animals.
