            Davao del Sur town battles swine fever
            By: Eldie Aguirre, Orlando Dinoy - @inquirerdotnet
            Philippine Daily Inquirer / 05:18 AM June 12, 2020

            DIGOS CITY—Still reeling from the economic impact of the lockdown measures against the COVID-19 pandemic, Bansalan town of Davao del Sur faces another threat in the reemergence of African swine fever among hog farms in the area.

            As of June 6, at least 17 pigs have been culled in one of the town villages to contain the spread of the virus, agriculture officials said.

            Bansalan Mayor Quirina Sarte ordered the activation of a joint task force to contain swine fever as cases were reported in Buenavista village, the epicenter of the infection...

              Lockdown slowed spread of fatal hog disease–BAI
              By Jasper Y. Arcalas
              June 22, 2020

              The Bureau of Animal Industry (BAI) said the imposition of the months-long lockdown has also helped prevent the spread of African swine fever (ASF) in the country, as cases declined to 20 per million pigs.

              In a recent virtual press briefing, BAI Director Ronnie D. Domingo said the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) implemented by the government to contain the spread of Covid-19 had prevented more ASF outbreaks.

              “ASF spreads because of the movement of sick pigs. But because of ECQ our cases declined. Before ECQ we are recording 60 cases per million pigs but after ECQ we are down to just 20 cases per million pigs,” Domingo said.

              Domingo said the country has so far experienced two waves of ASF outbreaks: the first was from September to October, following the confirmation of the dreaded disease and the second happened in January to February.

              The second wave was caused by the Christmas break, when Filipinos could have brought back to their provinces ASF-infected meat products.

              The dreaded ASF has spread to eight regions in the country, affecting hog farms in 224 cities in 25 provinces. According to Domingo, Central Luzon was the hardest hit among the affected regions.

              Central Luzon is the top hog-producing region in the country followed by Calabarzon. The two regions account for a combined volume of 813,293 metric tons (MT), which is 35 percent of the country’s nearly 2.3 million MT (MMT) output last year...

                  The viral swine disease that has ravaged hundreds of thousands of hogs, pulling down local pork supply and raising pork prices, has infected backyard farms anew, including that of the University of the Philippines Los Baņos (UPLB) that is meant for experimental or research purposes. In Laguna province, which has remained free of the African swine fever (ASF) until March, fresh outbreaks were reported on backyard farms in Calamba City and the towns of Los Baņos, Victoria and Pakil, provincial veterinarian Grace Bustamante said on Thursday.

                  Department of Agriculture (DA) regional director Arnel de Mesa has called on traders to regularly disinfect trucks and facilities, while stricter measures are imposed against “smuggled” pork products from China, where the virus is believed to have originated...

                    The agriculture official said processed meat from the nearby Davao region could be the source of the ASF that affected the hog industry in Magpet...

                        MAGPET, North Cotabato – Members of the local council unanimously approved Monday a resolution declaring the municipality under a state of calamity due to the increasing cases of African swine fever (ASF).

                        Jupiter Rubino, the municipal administrator, said the utilization of the apportioned calamity fund, which he failed to disclose pending completion of government accounting procedure, will focus on manpower and operation of mounted ASF checkpoints to effectively contain the disease.

                        “We need the fund to consistently hold the spread of ASF to other villages and even to nearby towns”, Rubino said...

                          CEBU CITY—Beware of purchasing chorizos that were made in Mindanao and being sold online.

                          Dr. Daniel Ventura, the African Swine Fever (ASF) focal person of the Department of Agriculture Central Visayas (DA 7), said that chorizo samples in Davao tested positive for African Swine Fever or ASF.

                          “Please advise all industry stakeholders to be vigilant on Chorizo de Davao being sold online. It was reported that regional task forces in Mindanao are jointly tracing private processors of chorizo products,” Ventura said.

                          In a public advisory, the National Meat Inspection Service (NMIS) warned that without physical access to the items being sold, consumers buying meat online have no way of knowing its quality and rely only on textual description and images provided by the seller...
