African swine fever

General

After being absent in Belgium for over 3 decades, African Swine Fever (ASF) reappeared in our country on the 13th of September 2018 in wild boar in the municipality of Etalle (most southern part of Belgium). Adequate measures for management of wild boar and domestic pigs have immediately been put in place by the competent authorities through the establishment of a double zoning (an inner high-risk zone surrounded by a buffer zone). Furthermore, adequate measures are also being taken for the whole of Belgium.
