Since September 13th, the African swine fever virus has been detected in 96 wild boars. So far, there are no positive cases outside of the infected area.

The positive area (the perimeter inside of which positive cases have been detected) is still the same. It had been previously widened to include the areas of Buzenol, Ethe, Lagland and St-Léger (source: AFSCA, on September 25th, 2018).

A comparative analysis between the DNA of the first 17 wild boars found dead and the genetic profiles of the populations of wild boars in other European countries is being carried out.

The first results of the sequencing of the virus carried out by Sciensano and the European reference laboratory (CISA / INIA, Spain) confirm that the virus isolated in Belgium pertains to genotype II, that currently circulates in Eastern Europe.

Different hypotheses could explain the entry of the ASF virus in Belgium. Nevertheless, no hypothesis has been confirmed.
