      The number of ASF cases in Brandenburg rises to 65

      October 12, 2020

      The African swine fever continues to spread. Current research results have confirmed the ASF suspicion in 10 other wild boar. There are a total of 65 confirmed cases in Brandenburg.

      As the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture announced this afternoon, the ASF suspicion in the 10 sows was confirmed by the Friedrich Loeffler Institute. The locations of the ten other pieces affected by ASF are all in the first designated core area. Eight infected wild boars were found in the Oder-Spree district and two more in the Spree-Neisse district.

      Another concern is currently a find in the second core area in the Märkisch-Oderland district. A large number of wild boars were discovered there during a large-scale search on the Oder island Küstrin. Parts of the discovered rotting have perished. ASF is suspected in the living pieces. FLI experts coordinate the further procedure with the responsible authorities in the district.

          Oct 14, 2020 Press release No. 198/2020

          Friedrich Loeffler Institute confirms: Four more cases of African swine fever in wild boars in Brandenburg

          A total of 69 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 four other wild boars in Brandenburg. The national reference laboratory - the Friedrich Loeffler Institute (FLI) - detected the animal disease in the corresponding samples.


          The locations of three wild boars are within the first core area - two wild boars were found in the Oder-Spree district, one wild boar in the Spree-Neisse district. The other wild boar comes from the second core area in the Märkisch-Oderland district.

          The domestic pig populations in Germany are still free from African swine fever. The epidemic is harmless to humans!

            Published: just now

            HAMBURG (Reuters) - One more case of African swine fever (ASF) has been found in the wild boar population in Brandenburg, the eastern German region's government said on Friday.

            That brings the number of confirmed cases to 70 since the first on Sept. 10. All were in wild animals in the region and no farm pigs have been affected so far...

                              The Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) informs that African swine fever (ASP) was first detected in a wild boar in Saxony.

                              The site is located near the Polish border in Upper Lusatia, Görlitz district.

                              There has been an active one in Poland since 2014 ASP-Happened that spread to the west. Cases ofASPoccurred in the immediate vicinity of the border with Germany. After a first case ofASP was confirmed in a wild boar in Brandenburg, there were - as was expected - further cases.

                              As before in Brandenburg, the requirements of the swine fever regulation are now taking effect. The competent authority in Saxony must now take all necessary measures to prevent the disease from spreading. This includes designating zones with special protective measures.



                              With more cases of ASF that were reported yesterday from Brandenburg, the total number of detected increases ASF Cases in Germany to a total of 117.
