To fulfil the European legislation, and after consulting the European Commission, the provisional infected area was revised last November 23rd and was replaced for 2 different areas: area I and area II.

Area II are the regions were the infected wild boars live, and it includes the whole of the previously infected zone, whilst Area I is a buffer area that surrounds Area II and that includes a part of the previously infected area (= South area) and a new region to the north of the infected area (= Area I North).

In these Areas I and II, the measures are applied both to wild boars and domestic pigs, in accordance with the European legislation.

Regarding domestic pigs, in practice only measures are applied in Area I North, because the pigs in Areas II and I South (the previously infected zone) were culled and the repopulation of these areas is forbidden. Under the current situation, no slaughterings of domestic pigs are expected in Area I North.
