To effectively roll out disease prevention and control as well as minimize losses caused by the ASF virus, the Municipal Party Committee’s Commission for Education and Communication requested the city’s entities to carry out major tasks, as follow:
District/township Commissions for Education and Communication and subordinate Party organizations, Fatherland Front Committees and political organizations will join the work to enhance the communication on ASF disease and preventive measures under diversified ways among officials, Party members and breeders.
It is necessary to work with functional agencies under the agriculture and rural development sector to guide organizations and individuals to actively take actions to put the ASF outbreak under control.
Similarly, the Department of Information and Communications, Hanoi Radio Television and press agencies will promote the dissemination of the disease and preventive measures in localities; encourage locals to join hands to promote safe pork consumption in an effort to remove difficulties for breeding households.
Meanwhile, the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development and the Department of Industry and Trade are tasked to jointly provide full and accurate information on the State’s policies and regulations on disease prevention and control; set up concrete solutions to stimulate safe pork consumption; work with the Department of Health and the Sub-Department of Animal Husbandry & Veterinary Services to synchronously take measures to fight against ASF virus and other dangerous infectious diseases (rabies, bird flu, blue ear, foot and mouth disease) as regulated; review large-scale breeding farms and ensure bio-safety breeding methods.
The document also urged the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development and the Department of Industry and Trade to coordinate with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources to ensure environmental sanitation in the city while working with the Municipal Commission for Education and Communication to provide disease information to press agencies (if necessary).
