The governor of Iloilo announces biosecurity precautions against swine fever
Executive Order Number 605, which sets minimum biosecurity requirements to combat the African swine fever (ASF) that has spread to many areas of the province, was signed by Governor Arthur Defensor Jr. of Iloilo.
The province’s reaction to the ASF issue will be implemented through the use of Tapak (Step), Hugas (Wash), and kag Malimpyo nga Pagpakaon (clean feeding), or “TAHUM.”
“The farm and the buildings are essentially where biosecurity controls are implemented, nowhere else. We’re going to continue forward with the Tahum Campaign,” he stated.
Eight municipalities in the province now have cases of the ASF on record.
Oton, San Miguel, and Leganes are the only three towns that have been designated as red zones. Although the infection hasn’t spread to neighboring barangays, other municipalities have also recorded ASF cases.
Additionally, Defensor authorized the Renewable Energy (Iloilo ProGReEn) initiative, which supports the creation, application, and commercialization of renewable energy, by signing Executive Order Number 606.
“This is actually what gives us vitality. Now that Energy Awareness Month has passed, the province has a green Christmas lane here at the capitol to kick off its drive for renewable energy, according to Defensor.
He continued by saying that the province’s 2023 budget includes PHP30 million for renewable energy initiatives, which is a first.
On December 16, the governor approved and issued both executive orders.
