CamSur steps up campaign vs African Swine Fever


The Camarines Sur Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council has convened its check point team amid the entry of African Swine Fever (ASF) in the province.

CamSur Gov. Miguel Villafuerte said that the checkpoint team leaders met to discuss and identify the areas in the province needing additional ASF checkpoints as part of the heightened alert for border control of the province.

“From 14 checkpoint areas in Cabugon, Bombon, and Calabanga, the team will put 16 more checkpoint areas in the municipalities of Cabusao, Del Gallego, Libmanan, Canaman, Pili, Calabanga, San Fernando, and Bato,” Villafuerte said.

“Team leaders of every agency assigned in the checkpoint areas were also briefed regarding the inspection procedure, and shifting and deployment of their personnel,” added the governor.

Meanwhile, Villafuerte said that surveillance teams of PDRRMC are now ready for deployment in Milaor, Minalabac, Libmanan, Cabusao, Canaman, Gainza, and Calabanga for the verification of “alleged fake news and reports” of ASF circulating in their areas.

“Maging mapanuri po tayo sa mga balita at impormasyon lalo na sa panahon ng krisis at kalamidad,” said the governor.

“Maging responsable sa paghahayag ng balita. Walang naidudulot na mabuti ang fake news. Do not instill fear and cause panic,” he added.
