The Philippines is now free of the highly pathogenic H5N6 bird flu virus, said the Department of Agriculture on Tuesday (19 January), citing a statement by the World Animal Health Organization (OIE).
The South-East Asian region, however, is one of the largest importers of meat, esspecialy for chicken, beef and other poultry products, but the report said that it is not dropping the guard against the disease.
A temporary ban on imports of domestic and wild birds and their products from France, South Korea, the Netherlands and Poland has been imposed by the Department of Agriculture, where another newer highly pathogenic strain, H5N8, had been found.

"Many places are under water. Many people are calling for help." The retired civil protection officer Rouel Santos describes the situation in the Philippine province of Rizal as dire.
Hundreds of people across the country had to seek refuge on their roofs due to severe flooding from Typhoon "Vamco". The tropical storm wreaked havoc when it pulled over the east of the main island of Luzon, on which the capital Manila is located,
with gusts of wind of more than 250 kilometers per hour. At least one person died and three more are missing, said civil defense. Thousands had been brought to safety before the storm hit. According to the civil defense, around 50,000 people were ordered to leave their homes.
