Since early April, a 8-km-long fence parallel to the border between Belgium and Luxembourg is being set up between Linger and Grass, and it is expected that it is completed by late May.

On the other hand, the establishment of a white area along the border between Belgium and Luxembourg has been enforced. Within this area, the culling of wild boars will be carried out to prevent the spreading of the virus, this being the responsibility of the Veterinary Services Administration and the Nature and Forests Administration.

The Minister of Agriculture, Mr Romain Schneider, also reminded that the rest of the preventive measures are still in force.

So far, no African swine fever cases have been detected in wild boars nor pigs in Luxembourg. All the results of the tests carried out at the Veterinary Medicine State Laboratory (LMVE) on wild boar carcasses have been negative.
