Farm pigs in east Germany confirmed another case of African swine fever (ASF) on Monday, a report from the federal government stated.
In July 2007, there was an outbreak of wild boar outbreak at three farms in eastern Germany, with about 2,000 cases in wild boar in the German and Austrian states.
The ministry said that in recent days, a new case has been found on a farm near Rostock in the eastern province of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and next to Brandenburg, where no ASF is previously found in wild boars and farm animals.
In September 2020, China and a series of other pork buyers banned German pigmeat imports after the first case was confirmed in wild animals. Discoveries on farms will make the EU difficult to remove the export bans, said the analyst.
Many countries ban pork from a region suffering from this disease and disrupt world food trade.
