Negros Occidental (6 February) -- In order to maintain the title as "FMD Free Province" and a "Bird Flu Free Nation" status in Negros Occidental, the Provincial Government under the Office of the Provincial Veterinarian (OPV) continues its bio-security and quarantine procedure at the newly-opened Bacolod-Silay Airport in Barangay Bagtic, Silay City.
