    First virus found in Germany

    African swine fever found in wild boar in Spree-Neisse



    The swine fever is now also in Germany: The infected wild boar was found in the immediate vicinity of pig herds in Oder-Spree. A meeting of the ASP district disaster management team is scheduled.


    September 09, 2020


    African swine fever (ASF) has arrived in Germany. According to Gundula Teltewskaja, alderman in the Oder-Spree district, the virus was detected in a wild boar in the neighboring Spree-Neisse district - in the Sembten district, a district of the Schenkendöbern community. The site is located in the immediate vicinity of pig stocks in Oder-Spree, she explained to the Committee on Building, Order and Environment. For Thursday she has scheduled a meeting of the ASP district disaster management team.



    Delimitation and security of the pig population


    The most important task is no longer the construction of a permanent protective fence to Poland, but the demarcation of the place of discovery and the safeguarding of the pig population. A fence is now being drawn in a four-kilometer radius around the site . This area clearly extends into the Oder-Spree district . The Neuzelle office is apparently particularly affected. The district bought the necessary fence material months ago. The neighboring district of Dahme-Spreewald is also preparing for an ASF outbreak. A few days ago, several cooling cells were put into operation there, including one in Lieberose, in which fallen game can be stored.

    Wild boar carcass is examined

    In an initial assessment, Teltewskaya assumes that there are no domestic pig herds within a four-kilometer radius. Exactly this could only be clarified on Thursday. It is also clear that there must be another, more extensive circle of protection. Details will be discussed tomorrow morning. Your goal is to have determined all the necessary measures by 8:30 a.m. at the latest.


    The Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture confirms that a sample of the wild boar carcass is on its way to the Friedrich Loeffler Institute. There it is examined virologically.

      First case of African swine fever in a wild boar in Germany



      09/10/2020 Short messages

      The African swine fever virus ( ASF ) was detected in a wild boar found dead in Brandenburg near the German-Polish border . The Berlin-Brandenburg State Laboratory detected specific genome sequences of the ASF virus in the samples taken on site. The National Reference Laboratory for ASP of the Friedrich Loeffler Institute ( FLI ) on the island of Riems confirmed the finding on September 10, 2020. It is the first case of ASF in Germany.

      Bones found in the largely decayed carcass were sampled. It can therefore be assumed that the entry took place a few weeks ago.

      According to the assessment of the FLI, the risk of the pathogen being introduced into Germany was classified as high. The physical distance to the nearest confirmed case of ASF in Poland is only 30 km. The proximity to the German-Polish border of about 6 km makes an entry by a migrating wild boar likely. However, introduction by humans through contaminated food cannot be ruled out. The responsible veterinary authorities on site must now take the necessary measures. The ASP has been spreading in the Asian-European region since 2007 and reached the eastern border of the EU in 2014 . The ASPspread through human activities such as improper disposal of contaminated food. This led to entries in the Czech Republic and Belgium, both of which were successfully deleted. The erection of fences has made an important contribution here. Brandenburg also erected a protective fence against the ASP on the border with Poland in December 2019 .

      It is now extremely important for farmers to carefully observe farm biosecurity. This still offers the best protection against the pathogen entering livestock populations. The pig keeping hygiene regulation serves as the legal basis for this.

      Dead wild boars should continue to be intensively examined nationwide for the presence of ASF , wild boars found dead should be reported immediately to the competent authority. This is usually done by calling. A marking and georeferencing of the site facilitate the further procedure. A photo of the location and the animal's body would also be desirable. The animal find app or the animal find cadastre ( https://www.tierfund-kataster.de/tfk/tfk_ernahme.php ) allow convenient transmission.

      It remains important to dispose of possibly contaminated pig products such as sausage and meat in such a way that wild and domestic pigs have no access. Vehicles, clothing, footwear and equipment that could have been contaminated during hunting , for example , should be cleaned and disinfected.

      The federal states are responsible for implementing the epidemic protection measures of the Swine Fever Ordinance, in particular the establishment of restricted areas and observation areas. In some states exercises have ASP occurred -combat. Regular task force meetings on the current situation and issues related to disease control are under the leadership of the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture.

      World of a vaccine against the will to develop ASP research, use in practice is, however, not be available in the foreseeable future. The virus reservoir of the ASP is the wild boar population, the pathogen is transmitted from pig to pig through blood and droplets. The virus of ASP affects only pigs (wild and domestic pigs) and is not transferable to humans. The consumption of wild boar is still safe.

      You can find all information on ASF , recommendations and instructions for action on the FLI website under> Tierseuchengeschehen> African swine fever:

        C'est beau, l'intelligence en action, vu ce que l'on voie, par ailleurs. Il est urgent que, plus haut, on accepte de voir...

        C'est quoi la bonne procédure de détection ?
        Et donc, c'est quoi les bons couples homme chien ?
        J'espère, que comme cela se passe en Allemagne, on va avancer vraiment ?

          They found a carcass, apparently the wild boar died weeks ago. May be not easy to find cases in wild boar, only when they are found dead in the woods?

        Un corps européen, où un vrai projet de coopération militaire européen, où plus, de couple homme chien, formé à la détection et apte à aller ou et quand, mais surtout à montrer l'efficience, ce me semble souhaitable...

        En tout cas, récupérer le fric mis dans l'usage des chiens pour détecter le covid et l'injecteur, dans ce genre de projet, outre faire du bien, cela donnerait la bonne image des armées...
        Toutes les grandes puissances, à ce stade, ont besoin de cela...

          African swine fever - estimating movement patterns with satellite data

          In order to contain the approaching African swine fever, its main vector, the wild boar, must be closely followed. So far, however, it has been impossible to generate movement data for wild boars across the board. With the automatic linking of satellite data, traffic counts and in-situ data from hunters and veterinary offices, one can now predict the habitats of wild boars and estimate their movement patterns.

          https://www.d-copernicus.de/fileadmi..._Flyer_Web.pdf

          Um die näher rückende Afrikanische Schweinepest einzudämmen, muss ihr Hauptüberträger, das Wildschwein, genau verfolgt werden. Mit der automatischen Verknüpfung von Satellitendaten, Verkehrszählungen und In-situ-Daten von Jägern und Veterinärämtern kann man jetzt die Habitate von Wildschweinen voraussagen und ihre Bewegungsmuster abschätzen.

            More swine fever cases suspected in wild boars in eastern Germany
            By Reuters Staff

            HAMBURG, Sept 15 (Reuters) - A further five cases of African swine fever (ASF) have been initially found in wild boars in the eastern German state of Brandenburg, the state government said on Tuesday.

            The cases were found in dead wild boars, not farm animals, close to the location of the first case of ASF in a wild boar confirmed last week, Brandenburg state health minister Ursula Nonnemacher told a committee of the state’s parliament...

              Germany confirms African swine fever cases in five more wild boars

              HAMBURG (REUTERS) - Five more cases of African swine fever (ASF) found in wild boars in the eastern German state of Brandenburg on Tuesday have been confirmed, the Brandenburg state government and federal agriculture ministry said on Wednesday (Sept 16).

              This brings to six the number of cases of swine fever confirmed in wild boars in Germany in the last week.

              The disease was found in dead wild boars, not farmed animals, close to the location of the first confirmed case of ASF last week, the Brandenburg state health ministry said.

              Germany's Friedrich-Loeffler scientific institute had confirmed the animals had ASF following positive initial tests in Brandenburg state laboratories, the federal ministry said.

                African swine fever: So far 13 positive wild boars in Brandenburg

                September 18, 2020

                The National Reference Laboratory for African Swine Fever ( ASF ) at the Friedrich Loeffler Institute has so far confirmed 13 virus detections in wild boars in Brandenburg. The first case from 09/10 was found in a carcass of a two to three year old brook in the Spree-Neisse district; the other 12 cases in wild boars were discovered near the community of Neuzelle in the Oder-Spree district and thus in the endangered area designated by the state of Brandenburg. All of them were initially tested positive in the responsible veterinary state laboratory in Berlin-Brandenburg and samples were then sent to the national reference laboratory at FLI for clarification .

                In light of the experience in other of the ASP is anticipated States concerned that the disease situation is at the beginning. In addition, one of the wild boars in the Oder-Spree district was found sick and shot. This also indicates an ongoing epidemic. It is to be expected that further cases will arise in the course of the intensified case game search. The case game search is used to precisely localize the infected area and to remove the carcasses as sources of infection for other wild boars.

                The state of Brandenburg provides information on the control measures taken on its website.

                    Friedrich-Loeffler-Institut confirms: Seven more cases of African swine fever in wild boars in Brandenburg

                    A total of 20 confirmed cases - the disease is harmless to humans - domestic pig herds are still not affected

                    The Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) informs that the official suspicion of African swine fever (ASF) has been confirmed in seven other wild boars in Brandenburg. The national reference laboratory - the Friedrich Loeffler Institute (FLI) - detected the animal disease in the corresponding samples. The sites are within the endangered area.

                        29 carcasses found - Brandenburg intensifies crisis management

                        There are now 29 infected carcasses. With fences and dogs, the spread of the disease should be prevented.


                        The number of wild boars infected with African swine fever continues to rise. In the meantime, 29 cadavers have been found in Brandenburg that carry the virus, which is deadly for pigs but harmless to humans, the Federal Ministry of Agriculture announced on Wednesday. Domestic pigs have not yet been affected.

                        Brandenburg is intensifying its efforts to prevent further spread. In the Spree-Neisse district on the Polish border, the previous electric fence is to be replaced by a permanent fence in order to prevent further immigration of Polish wild boars.

                        The Brandenburg Ministry of Consumer Protection announced on Wednesday that the entire 120-kilometer-long mobile fence on the border with Poland, which has many epidemic cases, will gradually be replaced by a fixed barrier.

                        Another permanent fence is to be erected later around the core area in Brandenburg, where dead wild boars have been discovered. So far, the districts of Spree-Neisse and Oder-Spree have been affected. An area of ​​60 kilometers in length is cordoned off and cannot be entered by walkers.

                        Search dogs from Schleswig-Holstein and Rhineland-Palatinate try to track down other carcasses. Only when all infected pigs have been found should the core area be cordoned off with a solid fence.
                        Jetzt sind es schon 29 infizierte Kadaver. Mit Zäunen und Hunden soll eine weitere Ausbreitung der Seuche verhindert werden.

                            The Friedrich-Loeffler-Institute (FLI), the Federal Research Institute for Animal Health, confirmed the animal disease in the respective samples. The sites where the three wild boars were discovered were all located within the designated risk area.

                            Two weeks ago, the first case of ASF was confirmed in a wild boar in Brandenburg, whereupon local officials established a risk area with a radius of 15 km around the first discovery site...
