NegOcc continues fight vs. ASF
BY MARCHEL P. ESPINA

Negros Occidental continues its efforts against the African swine fever amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Dr. Ryan Janoya, head of the Animal Health and Meat Inspection Services Division of the Provincial Veterinary Office, said personnel continuously man ports and checkpoints in borders to ensure that no undocumented live pigs and pork products from ASF-affected areas, such as Luzon and Mindanao, enter the province.

“We have been closely monitoring our ports and borders. We are focused on incoming cargoes and container vans,” he said.
