On 16 August, the Bureau of Animal Industry (BAI) informed the Department of Agriculture (DA) of an increase in mortality in pigs reared on backyard farms in Rizal province, near Manila. The DA immediately ordered to investigate the affected farms and the collection of blood samples.

The samples were sent to Pirbright's reference laboratory in the UK, and the PCR result has been positive for ASF, as reported by the DA in a statement released today.
