According to ASF spreads to more areas in Cebu | CDN Digital (inquirer.net), according to the Department of Agriculture's Bureau of Animal Industry (BAI), the African Swine Fever (ASF) has spread to other areas in this region.
At least ten cities and towns in Cebu Province have been identified as having the fatal swine disease, according to the BAI's most recent National Zoning and Movement Plan for ASF, which was published on March 30 and was dated March 27.
These include the towns of Cordova, Liloan, Minglanilla, San Fernando, Sibonga, and Tuburan as well as the cities of Bogo, Lapu-Lapu, Mandaue, and Talisay. With this, there are now 18 locations in Cebu affected by the ASF.
Together with the three autonomous cities of Cebu, Mandaue, and Lapu-Lapu, Cebu has 50 local administrations.
According to ASF spreads to more areas in Cebu | CDN Digital (inquirer.net), when the virus was found in samples of meat that had been killed in Carcar City on March 1 of last year, the island province lost its designation as an ASF-free jurisdiction.
After criticizing the techniques BAI used to transfer ASF to other regions of the country, the provincial administration has put into place its own anti-ASF measures and regulations.
As a result, there are no limitations on the movement of live pigs and pork products, and no hogs are killed within a 500-meter radius of an area that has been determined to be sick.
Despite being fatal to pigs, ASF poses no risks to humans, hence eating meat from effected regions is safe.
