MANILA, Philippines – Two more barangays in Quezon City have reported positive cases of African Swine Fever (ASF).

According to a message from city veterinarian Ana Marie Cabel, cases of ASF were reported in hogs at the University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman campus and Barangay Sta. Monica in Novaliches, Quezon City.

Cabel said a total of 178 pigs were accounted in Barangay UP Campus while 16 pigs were reported in Barangay Sta. Monica.

Culling operations, however according to Cabel, will be scheduled only once the City Veterinary Office has cleared Barangay Payatas.

The two barangays are the latest addition to the previous seven areas reported to the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) as having positive cases of ASF.

These seven areas in Quezon City include Barangays Bagong Silangan, Payatas, Tatalon, Pasong Tamo, Roxas, Tandang Sora, and Commonwealth. MNP (with inputs from Rey Pelayo)
