China bans import of pork from Germany after ASF case detected

Germany registered the first case of African swine fever (ASF), a worrying sign in a country where pig farming and trade are highly developed, Agriculture Minister Julia Klöckner announced this Thursday, September 10, 2020. The virus was detected in the remains of a wild boar found near the Polish border, in the Brandenburg region, which surrounds Berlin. This virus, like the consumption of infected meat, is not dangerous for humans, nor is the consumption of their meat.
