On December 21, the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) issued the self-declaration submitted from Belgium in late October declaring disease free status for African Swine Fever (ASF). The disease-free status applies to boars and pigs, both wild and in captivity.

ASF is still active in Eastern Europe and will be monitored to prevent further outbreak.
