After a period of four days when the country's borders were closed to Lithuanian pork products, the Veterinary and Food Board lifted the ban and established a buffer zone in southern counties as fears of African swine fever, an agricultural disease, spread.

After a first-ever case of the African swine fever was reported in Poland, setting off a wave of animal destructions in nearby countries, the Estonian Veterinary and Food Board announced temporary protective measures effective July 24, but the ban was lifted on Monday after assurances were received regarding the supply chain of what little Lithuanian pork products there were in the country.

The buffer zone established on Tuesday covers parts of Valga and Viljandi counties.
