Manila moves to prevent spread of ASF

account_balanceManila News account_circleMichael Lim chat_bubble_outline0 Comments

The city government of Manila strengthened its monitoring of all markets and ports to prevent the entry of the African Swine Fever (ASF).

The Veterinary Inspection Board (VIB) said it is “way ahead” in its campaign against the spread of ASF, particularly in its operations against the sale of hot meat and “botcha.”

“The Veterinary Inspection Board strengthened its monitoring task force to check all possible point of entries and distribution channels, including in markets and ports, as well as all cold storage facilities in the City of Manila, especially Tondo and Binondo area,” VIB Special Enforcement Squad chief Dr. Nick Santos said.

Santos noted that the nation’s capital has “the lowest percentage of hog mortality rate” because the city does not have farms and hog-raisers.

“In this case, prevention is our top priority,” Santos said.

“The Special Enforcement Squad of the Veterinary Inspection Board, mandated by the Office of the Mayor, will conduct thorough inspections and perform their duties 24/7 to ensure that the meat being sold in our markets is clean, fresh, and safe for consumption, especially free from ASF,” Santos added.

The Department of Agriculture (DA) recently announced the outbreak of ASF in several areas in Bulacan and Rizal.

DA Secretary William Dar, however, assured the public that the outbreak has been contained by authorities.
