Sec. Pinol and Pres. Duterte
Mahigpit umanong binabantayan at mino-monitor ng Malacañang ang sitwasyon sa Pampanga kasunod ng avian flu outbreak na idineklara ng Department of Agriculture (DA).
Sinabi ni Presidential Spokesman Ernesto Abella, sa ngayon ay wala pang naiulat na bird-to-human contamination.
Ayon kay Abella, tumutulong na ang Department of Health (DOH) sa sa DA kaugnay sa ginagawang avian flu investigation at containment activities na kinabibilangan ng flu vaccinations at pamamahagi ng protective equipment para sa mga poultry handlers at responders.
Kasabay nito, nananawagan si Abella sa publiko na mananatiling kalmado pero nakaalerto at mapagmasid.
Inihayag din ni Abella na tiniyak ng DoH na ang avian flu ay naililipat sa pamamagitan ng respiratory routes o kapag nakaamoy o nakahinga ng hanging kontaminado ng nasabing virus kaya ligtas kainin ang karne ng manok at itlog basta naluto ng maayos.
“We are closely monitoring the situation in Pampanga following the confirmation of avian flu outbreak yesterday by the Department of Agriculture (DA). As of this time, there has been no report of bird-to-human contamination. The Department of Health (DOH) is assisting the DA for avian flu investigation and containment activities, which include flu vaccinations and protective equipment for poultry handlers and responders. Heightened surveillance for flu-like syndromes is now instituted in Pampanga within 7km radius of the affected farms. We ask our people to remain calm yet vigilant. Any person living or residing in affected areas or who had been exposed to dead chickens who becomes sick with flu or flu-like illness, such as fever and/or sore throat/cough should immediately report to their local health center or nearest hospital for laboratory test. Also, the DOH assures our people that avian flu is transferred via respiratory routes. Properly cooked chicken meat and eggs remain safe to eat,” ani Abella.
