【看英文中國郵報學英文】非洲豬瘟中央災害應變中心今(18)日宣布,根據可靠消息來源指出菲律賓疑似發生非洲豬瘟案例,但該國尚未向世界動物衛生組織通報疫情,為防疫超前部署,防止疫病入侵,決定自‪19日零時‬起增加對菲律賓入境桃園機場旅客手提行李進行全面X光機查驗。

Taoyuan International Airport expands carry-on luggage check from the Philippines starting from Aug. 19 due to a suspected African swine fever (ASF) outbreak in the country, The Central Emergency Operation Center for ASF said yesterday (Aug 18).

The operation center said Philippines hadn’t reported an ASF outbreak to the World Organization for Animal Health, but reliable sources pointed out that there is a suspected outbreak.

應變中心表示,目前桃園機場因入境旅客人數較多,除託運行李已全面檢查外,手提行李則針對來自高風險地區(包含中國大陸、香港、澳門、越南、寮國、柬埔寨、緬甸、泰國、北韓、韓國及俄羅斯)之旅客,由防檢局執行百分百X光檢查。

Besides checked luggage, the operation center said the Bureau of Animal and Plant Health Inspection and Quarantine has so far only had hand luggage arriving from high-risk areas including Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, Thailand, North Korea, South Korea and Russia as subject for X-ray scanning because of the large number of travelers in Taoyuan International Airport.  

其他機場則已對所有入境旅客託運行李及手提行李,由關務署X光機及防檢局檢疫犬進行檢查。

Other airports in Taiwan had already inspected all checked and carry-on baggage by the Customs Administrations, MOF, and quarantine detector dogs.

應變中心說,考量菲律賓布拉干省及黎剎省疑似發生非洲豬瘟疫情,防檢局決定自‪19日凌晨零時起,將菲律賓列入高風險地區,對來自該國旅客進行手提行李檢查。

Starting Aug. 19, due to the suspected ASF outbreak in Bulacan Province and Rizal Province, the Philippines would be listed as a high-risk country of ASF requiring X-ray scanning on their hand luggage as well, the operation center said.

值此疫情在亞洲擴散時刻,應變中心特別呼籲,國內養豬業者應儘速提升養豬場生物安全防護措施,嚴防疫病入侵,不要讓所有防疫的辛勞破功。應變中心也提醒入境旅客,千萬不要違規攜帶豬肉產品入境,違者將遭重罰,民眾切勿以身試法。

Due to widespread AFS in Asia, the operation center reminds domestic hoggeries to stay alert and increase preventive measures. People entering Taiwan are warned against bringing any pork products into the country or face a fine.
