The disease is beginning a new stage in its epidemiological cycle. Fewer and fewer carcasses are being found. The last ASF-positive animal was detected on August 11th, but seropositive wild boars have been found. They are wild boars that are resistant to the virus and that may transmit the disease.

In order to avoid that these wild seropositive boars spread the disease more seriously than before, an important elimination mechanism will be implemented by still-hunting the wild boars in the infected area. The circulation of hikers or cyclists in the forest could interrupt these operations, and because of this, as of October 4th, 2019, the circulation of hikers and cyclists will be forbidden in the forests located in the infected areas. This closure is basic to avoid any risk of the spreading of the disease through seropositive wild boars.

The circulation within the infected area had been partially allowed in spring and summer 2019.

Map of the areas were the circulation will be forbidden as of October 4th, 2019.
