When a epizootic disease like African swine fever (ASF) appears in borderlands, the affected member states must be able to act quickly and in a coordinate manner, and the restriction areas must be able to interact and work together. Due to this, Poland and Germany are carrying out simulations of the presence of ASF in borderlands with the aim of coordinating the local and central veterinary administrations, as well as the Central Reference Laboratories of both countries in the border voivodate of West Pomerania and the State of West Mecklemburg-Vorpommern.

ASF represents a great challenge for the European Union states. Last week, Germany passed a new law on epizootic diseases with the aim of being able to act quickly and effectively in case of an outbreak of this disease.

Poland has been severely affected for several years by ASF outbreaks both in wild boars and domestic pigs. The spreading of the disease in the Warsaw metropolitan area was probably due to the careless disposal of contaminated leftovers, this also entailing a danger for the introduction of this disease in Germany.
