Poland suffers first cases of African swine fever in pigs

Piglets at a farm in Dabkowice, central Poland on April 6, 2009Poland on Wednesday confirmed its first cases of deadly swine fever in domestic pigs, as the World Trade Organisation reviewed a Russian embargo on EU pork imports imposed over the disease. “Test results showed the first outbreak of African swine fever on a farm with five pigs,” in the eastern region of Bialystok bordering Belarus, Polish veterinary authorities said in a statement. The development comes the day after fellow EU member Latvia declared a state of emergency in a second area of the Baltic state as efforts continued to contain an outbreak of the fever among pigs. China nevertheless banned Polish pork and Russia slapped its own blanket ban on pork imports from the 28-member European Union, a move Brussels criticised as “disproportionate”.
