Mayor Lacson: Magalang is bird flu-free
Magalang Mayor Malu Paras-Lacson on August 13 announced that the municipality is bird flu-free.
This after a bird flu outbreak has infected more than 200,000 birds in San Luis, Pampanga.
The Pampanga politiko said that the municipal government is closely monitoring Magalang’s poultry vendors and farms.
“Magalang is avian virus-free. We see this as an opportunity for us to send a message that in our town is not affected by the Bird Flu but this does not mean we are not doing anything. As a matter of fact we have already put up a monitoring team to assess and inspect the farms,” Lacson said.
“We are concerned about the economic aspect as well as the health aspect of our people who own and work in this type of industry,” she said. #
