Alert up vs. live pigs, pork
products from Mindanao
BY MARCHEL P. ESPINA

The provincial government of Negros Occidental has stepped up its measures against the entry of live pigs and pork products from Mindanao to curb the spread of the African swine fever virus, Provincial Veterinarian Renante Decena said yesterday.

Decena said the existing provincial ordinance that permanently bans live pigs and pork products from Luzon and other ASF-affected areas also covers Mindanao, that reported its first case of the dreaded virus over the weekend.

At least 1,000 pigs have been affected in several barangays of Don Marcelino town in Davao Occidental, he said.
