After announcing the first case of African Swine Fever (PSA) last Friday (11) and isolating the area, Germany found more dead boar carcasses in the same location, in the state of Brandenburg, bordering Poland.

According to the public broadcaster rbb, the samples are now being analyzed in a laboratory. So far China, Argentina, South Korea, Japan and Brazil have suspended imports of German pork. From January to August, Brazilians bought 1,800 tons of the protein. According to the Brazilian Animal Protein Association (ABPA), the main products purchased from that country are fresh and frozen pork casings.

According to German Agriculture Minister Julia Kloeckner, the case is not a cause for panic, as authorities are intensely evaluating what measures need to be taken to combat the disease and prevent it from spreading to commercial pig farms.
