Cholera hits hogs of backyard raisers in Cotabato

Cotabato City (12 February) -- More than a hundred hogs in some areas in Cotabato province have been affected by hog cholera the past weeks.

Cotabato Governor Jesus Sacdalan attributes the onset of hog cholera in areas along the Malitubog river to the flashfloods in late January.

Sacdalan said, six barangays in Aleosan, two in Alamada and two in Midsayap have been affected by hog cholera.

"Well, ito ay sanhi ng climate change, biglang ulan at bumaha nga sa nasabing mga lugar, kaya nagkasakit ang mga baboy," he said.

A total of 240 hogs have been reported to have died due to the disease, the governor said.

He said, concerned agencies and the provincial government have taken conducted mass immunization and continuously monitor the situation to prevent any outbreak.

Although disease has not affected the more than 160, 000 hogs in the province, the officials noted a negative impact of the epidemic on the livelihood of backyard hog raisers.

As a precautionary measure, Gov Sacdalan has called on the raisers to report any similar situation and avail of free immunization/medicines and other assistance that the provincial government has set up. (PBC/PIA Cot City) [top]
