Press statement of Senator Loren Legarda on Swine Flu

All government agencies concerned, such as the Department of Agriculture, Bureau of Animal Industry, the Department of Health and the Bureau of Immigration, should be on full alert to prevent the entry of the swine flu virus in our country. The possibility of a pandemic sweeping our country is not far-fetched considering our vulnerability in terms.

The outbreak of the swine flu virus in Mexico and the United States also point to the urgency of protecting and improving our environment to make it inhospitable to viruses affecting humans and animals. The Department of Agriculture should be congratulated for successfully limiting the effects of and containing the ebola reston virus that recently affected our own swine industry.
