Dinagat eyes state of calamity amid ASF rise

BUTUAN CITY — The local government of Libjo in Dinagat Islands is recommended to be placed under a state of calamity as a consequence of the continued increase of African swine fever cases. The recommendation was pushed by the Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council led by Libjo Mayor Melody Llamera Compasivo to the Sangguniang Bayan a day earlier. “The people in the municipality are alarmed by the rising cases of ASF. A solution to deter the further spread of the ASF is necessary,” said the MDRRMC’s statement. The state of calamity proposal was approved by both the MDRRMC members and the 16 barangay chairpersons of the town. “Based on the data provided by the Municipal Agriculture Office, six barangays in the town are already affected by the ASF,” the statement said. As of 7 August, some 163 heads of hogs were already culled in the affected barangays as a measure to stop the spread of the disease to other villages. The MDRRMC has suggested the installation of footbath checkpoints at the entry points of barangays that have not yet been impacted by ASF. Also, the council proposed that the sale of live hogs and pork by-products should only be permitted in barangays that have not yet been impacted by the disease. The Libjo SB is expected to make the declaration during its regular session this week. In other developments, the ASF has also invaded the Antique Swine Production and Artificial Insemination Center in Sibalom town. Public Health Division of the Provincial Veterinarian chief Dr. Marco Rafael Ardamil explained that the ASPAIC is the source of the piglets being dispersed by the provincial government for the sugar migrant workers and other Antiqueños requesting livelihood projects. ASPAIC in Barangay Pangpang used to have 62 hogs but one boar died on 26 July, while 61 others, including eight sows, eight gilts, two boars, 19 weanling pigs and 24 piglets, were depopulated on 2 August. Ardamil said he immediately did a necropsy and submitted a blood sample for testing to the Department of Agriculture Regional Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory after the incident on 26 July.

FDA appeals: Produce ASF drugs, vax

The Food and Drug Administration has called on the veterinary pharmaceutical industry to submit applications with complete requirements in support of the government’s efforts to control the African Swine Fever or ASF outbreak. According to the FDA, only one ASF vaccine marketing authorization holder has applied for a certificate of product registration or CPR, a permit that allows the distribution and sale of a product. Since its resurgence in 2018, ASF, which is a highly contagious and deadly viral disease affecting both domestic and feral swine of all ages, has killed millions of swine across the globe. In Luzon alone, hog raisers have reported incurring a total of P100 billion in losses due to the spread of ASF in the country.To facilitate the issuance of CPR to ASF drugs and vaccines, the FDA said Sunday it has formed a task force. FDA Director General Dr. Samuel Zacate said Task Force Moccus, named after the boar or swine Celtic god of Lingones, was created under Proclamation 1143 declaring a state of calamity due to the ASF outbreak. “The task force shall facilitate applications for ASF drugs and vaccines to control the disease responsible for a significant reduction in the country’s swine population,” the FDA said.

COVID-19 cases in House of Representatives increase to 31

The House of Representatives now has 31 confirmed cases of COVID-19, up three cases from Saturday’s count of 28, Secretary-General Jose Luis Montales said on Sunday. Among the three new cases confirned by the House official was Deputy Speaker, Basilan lone district Rep. Mujiv Hataman. Hataman had actually revealed his condition over in his social media Saturday but it was only acknowledged Sunday afternoon by the House. Montales, in an advisory to reporters, disclosed about the other two cases:  “The first is from Human Resources Management Service. He reported for work on July 22 and 23. He got tested on July 31 after experiencing cough and colds, fever, and loss of smell and taste.” The secretary-general said the remaining positive case was from the Engineering Department. “He tested positive when he underwent rapid antibody test as part of SoNA (State of the Nation Address) screening protocol. His RT-PCR (Reverse Transcription-Polymerase Chain Reaction) test confirmed that he is positive for COVID-19.” Also known as a swab test, the RT-PCR test is said to be far more accurate than a rapid test. Montales said contact tracing on the two House employees is ongoing. It was also during this previous week that another Deputy Speaker, Surigao del Sur 2nd district Rep. Johnny Pimentel, tested positive for COVID-19. He also learned of his infection during the SoNA swab testing on July 26 at Batasang Pambansa Complex.
