To keep out lumpy skin disease (LSD), the EPA joined hands with the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) on 16 April, disinfecting the entrances, exits, and surrounding areas of 11 ports and 13 airports. The competent authorities of these ports and airports were in charge of disinfecting their jurisdictions, whereas the environmental authorities handled surrounding roads and public areas. It was an interdepartmental collaboration that effectively lowered disease-carrying mosquitoes' density and protected the livestock industry through proper disease control measures.
