Since the emergence of ASF, Belgium has implemented several measures to stop the disease, among them the ban on the circulation in some forest areas.

For several months, the circulation in the forests was forbidden in the nucleus (NA) and buffer areas (BA), whose perimeters have evolved greatly with time and based on the spreading of the disease. Since April 6th, the ban on the circulation in the forests affected 14,000 hectares in the north (forests of Rulles, Neufchâteau and Chiny) and in the south (Bois d'Ardenne, Meix-devant-Virton and Grand Bois). But after a new assessment, 7,000 more hectares have been included in the prohibition as of July 1st. The reason is the detection of a new outbreak of the virus in the area of Rachecourt (Aubange).

As of June 24th, 3,166 wild boars have been tested (or are being tested), of which 823 have been positive cases.
