Agriculture Minister Stephane Travert asked that some activities such as hunting be restricted and called for enhanced surveillance of livestock and wildlife in four administrative departments (counties) bordering Belgium. She added that the Commission was in close contact with Belgian officials. The ministry said earlier this month that the situation was generally under control.

However, authorities have stated that the likelihood of wild boars infected with the virus in China entering national borders and spreading the disease in South Korea was minimal.

It added: "Biosecurity in pig farms is essential and the FASFC ensures that it is permanently properly insured".
