Animal quarantine checkpoints have been established in the Philippines to restrict the movement of all live domestic birds to and from the 1-km radius within the quarantine area.

The Agriculture Secretary of the Philippines confirmed that animal quarantine checkpoints were set up to restrict the movement of live domestic birds.

The Philippines had detected an outbreak of avian flu in a quail farm of Jaen municipality in Nueva Ecija province. Speaking in a press conference on 16 March 2020, Agriculture Secretary William D. Dar said that a total of 12,000 quails have been culled and buried to prevent further infections. He added that in order to prevent further spread of influenza in the related area, surveillance around the 1 km and 7 km radius would be carried out immediately and that animal quarantine checkpoints had also been established to control the movement of all live domestic birds to and from the 1 km radius of the quarantine area.
