Batangas Gov. Dodo Mandanas has issued an executive order extending the ban on the entry of certain poultry and birds as part of efforts to prevent the spread of avian influenza in the province.

The restrictions would be in force until September 4.

The ban covers ready to lay pullets, hatching eggs, spent hens, gamefowls, ducks, quails, piegons and other non-poultry birds.

Also covered are transport carriers for live culls and poultry manure.

Mandanas issued the order amid reports that additional cases of avian flu were found in several other provinces.

Batangas ranks 5th in the country in the volume of production of chickens, and ranks first in the volume of production for chicken eggs.
