The provincial government of Ifugao has prohibited the entry of live hogs and fresh and frozen pork products to protect the province against African swine fever (ASF).

The ban was issued under Executive Order (EO) 14-2020 dated February 12, a copy of which was released to the media on Monday.

According to the EO, the latest reports on ASF show that the Cordillera region, including the provinces of Kalinga and Benguet, has been affected by the virus.
