Epizootic situation

It was recognized at the meeting of the European Parliament Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development that the disease spread significantly damaged economies of Baltic countries and Poland.

So, for example, only one million of euro was allocated to all Polish farmers. At present Baltic countries and Poland present a buffer zone but in the absence of effective measures African swine fever will strike a severe economic blow on other countries.
