Bulgaria began building a fence at its border with Romania in Lipnita Kainargea on Tuesday, to stop wild boar from spreading the African swine fever virus (ASFV). Authorities are concerned that hundreds of outbreaks of ASFV in neighbouring Romania threaten Bulgaria's pork industry. Agricultural minister Rumen Porojanov said a barbed-wire fence will be used across 133 km. The fence covers... Еще roughly a fifth of the length of the countries' border, which largely follows the course of the Danube river. While no case has yet been detected in Bulgaria, the spread of the disease in eastern Europe remains a cause for concern. While ASFV is harmless for humans and other animals, can prove deadly for wild boar and farm pigs.
