MANILA, Philippines — African swine fever (ASF) continues to spread in the country, with culled pigs breaching the 300,000 level even as the government said the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic has helped slow the movement of the fatal hog disease.

 

In its 10th follow-up report to the World Organization for Animal Health released over the weekend, the Philippines said 20 new outbreaks have been recorded and 10,543 additional culled pigs have been added to the list.

 

This brings the total to 309,387 pigs killed since the outbreak started in August 2019.

 

As of latest data from the government, there are 4,711 cases of ASF in the country.

 

Of the new outbreaks, the highest number of killed pigs is in Malasiqui in Pangasinan with 3,018, followed by San Carlos City with 1,933, and Pamplona in Camarines Sur with 1,170.

 

However, no new province has been added to ASF-affected areas.

 

New outbreaks were recorded in Tanay and Antipolo City in Rizal, while Botolan in Zambales reported 336 new deaths.

 

Pangasinan also saw new cases in Calasiao, Alaminos City, Anda and Bolinao.

 

More cases were reported in Los Baños in Laguna, Pinagbayanan in Quezon, and Sto. Tomas in La Union.

 

Further up north, Isabela had new cases in Ramon, while Ifugao saw new cases in Banaue and Haliap.

The number of pigs culled breached 300,000 marks as African swine fever (ASF) continues to spread in the country amid the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic.

The Philippines said in its 10th follow-up report to the World Organization for Animal Health that 20 new outbreaks had been recorded, and 10,543 additional culled pigs have been added to the list.

 

The number of hogs culled since the outbreak started in August 2019 is now 309,387.

 

Meanwhile, the latest data from the government, there are 4,711 cases of ASF in the Philippines.

 

Of the 20 new outbreaks, the highest number of culled pigs is in Malasiqui in Pangasinan with 3,018, followed by San Carlos City with 1,933, and Pamplona in Camarines Sur with 1,170.

 

The report, however, no new province has been added to ASF-affected areas.

 

New ASF outbreaks were recorded in Tanay and Antipolo City in Rizal, while Botolan in Zambales reported 336 new ASF related hog deaths.

 

There were also new cases in Calasiao, Alaminos City, Anda and Bolinao in Pangasinan.
