BY MARCHEL P. ESPINA

The Provincial Veterinary Office in Negros Occidental has continued to strengthen its effort to prevent the entry of African swine fever (ASF) in the province.

Provincial Veterinarian Renante Decena said yesterday that the Philippines is highly vulnerable to the virus which is why they prioritized the strengthening of biosecurity during the recent ASF technical meeting with the city veterinarians, livestock inspectors, para-veterinarians, and PVO employees.

The PVO initiated the meeting during the regular consultative conference of the Poultry and Livestock Association in Negros Occidental Inc. with Dr. Lemuel Espinaso, technical specialist of Pilmico Animal Health, as resource person, he said.
