HAMBURG (Reuters) – Another nine cases of African swine fever (ASF) have been confirmed in wild boars in the eastern German state of Brandenburg, Germany’s federal agriculture ministry said on Wednesday.

The new discoveries bring total confirmed cases to 29 since the first one on Sept. 10, all in wild animals, not farm pigs.
