Accordingly, Hanoi will continue strengthening the communication to raise awareness and responsibility in prevention and control of ASF disease.
In particular, the city will focus on disseminating Directive No. 34-CT/TW dated May 20, 2019 of the Secretariat of the Party Central Committee, Resolution No. 42/NQ-CP dated June 18, 2019 of the Government and other guiding documents on mass media among people.
It is necessary to review shortcomings and existing problems affecting the effectiveness of the disease prevention and control work over the past time as guided by the Government at Resolution No. 42/NQ-CP dated June 18, 2019 of the Government; timely remove weaknesses (if any) in agencies and units; elaborate, adjust and supplement the overall plan on prevention and control of ASF virus so as to ensure enough vital resources to carry out the task.
Additionally, the plan underlines the need to consolidate all-level veterinary systems to fulfill their missions, establish working teams to urge and work with localities to take measures and put the disease under control; mobilize on the-spot forces to take part in the disease prevention and control work.
Among the tasks stated in the plan include training staffs in charge of combating the epidemic; tightening the management and control of pig transport, slaughter, and consumption of pork, especially in ASF-hit localities; creating favorable conditions for safe pork consumption; instructing farmers to take measures for AFS disease prevention.
The Municipal People’s Committee requested all levels and sectors to pay special attention to prevent the ASF virus from further spreading while mobilizing the entire political system to join in the fight against the epidemic.
