GENERAL SANTOS CITY- The General Santos City Veterinarian’s Office gave updates on African Swine Fever on Wednesday, November 06, 2019 at Yolach’s Venue in this city.
Along with the Veterinary Quarantine Services of Region 12, City Veterinarian Dr. Antonio Ephrem Marin discussed measures to contain the outbreak of the ASF, updates on ASF and the creation of ASF Prevention Task Force.
General Santos City has implemented Executive Orders No. 39, 40 and 44 Series of 2019 and the City Veterinarian’s Office plans to merge these EO’s into one proposed ordinance to be submitted to the Sangguniang Panlungsod in order to strengthen its implementation to help the industry.
Dr. Marin also stated that they have already operationalized three quarantine checkpoints located at the National Highway in Apopong and Tinagacan and along Barangay Mabuhay for security measures.
These checkpoints are equipped with 3 power sprayers, 2 kubo, 3 foothbaths, 8 plastic drums, flashlight, reflectorized vest, 2 tables, electrical supplies, signages including rice and coffee provided by SOCOSPA and GVETS.
A total of 1,310 meat vans and 1,742 delivery trucks were inspected and disinfected by these checkpoints for the month of October and 78 kilos of processed uncooked pork without necessary permits were confiscated.
Central Luzon accounts for the highest number of swine inventory of 2.21 million heads.
According to Veterinarian Quarantine Services, the breakout of ASF started in Rizal province due to food wastes that is why hog raisers are not advised to feed their hogs with pigswill (kanin baboy).
Bulacan, Pampanga, Nueva Ecija, Pangasinan, Cavite, and Quezon City are already affected by ASF and as of August 19, 2019, 24 outbreaks have been reported to World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) by the Philippine government.
On October 24, 2019, two smuggled container vans from China were declared as tomato paste vermicilli but later discovered to be pork upon physical inspection and found positive for ASF.
The National Meat Inspection Services said that slaughterhouses with no veterinary permit are not allowed to slaughter animals.
The LGU, VQS, FDA, NMIS and ASF Task Forces are willing to work together to maintain GenSan City ASF Free. (CPIO)
