Two cases of African swine fever detected

There are two cases of African swine fever in Belgium.

As reported by the Federal Ministry of Agriculture in Berlin, the virus was detected at two 60 kilometers beyond the border of dead wild boar. Minister Klöckner said she took the situation very seriously. Preparations for the crisis are in progress. The ministry called on pig farmers to strictly comply with hygiene regulations. Hunters were asked to report dead boars to the relevant authorities.

In Germany there have been no cases of swine fever. The virus transmits via direct contact, but can also be passed on contaminated meat products. Infected pigs usually die after about a week. For humans, the virus is not dangerous. Farmers fear billions of euros in the event of an outbreak in Germany.
