European Commission declares Belgium ‘free from ASF’

Fonte: pigprogress.net

he Belgian Federal Agency for the Safety of the Food Chain (FASFC) stated that all restrictions shall be lifted, so Belgium will no longer be included in Europe’s maps of countries affected by ASF. ASF emerged in 2018 in wild boar in the southern province of Luxembourg, which is situated next to the Luxembourg country. To fight the epidemic, a large area was shut down for tourists and a limited number of pig producers had to depopulate for preventive reasons.
