To ensure that biosecurity measures are being observed and strictly followed and to prevent the entry of livestock and poultry diseases, Agriculture Secretary William Dar inspected the newly-installed footbaths at Gates 1 and 16 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 1 on October 13, 2019.

The footbaths are installed at strategic points of the terminal airport to prevent the spread of African Swine Fever and entry of other livestock and poultry diseases.

The footbaths are located at the east and west concourses upon arrival of the passengers from the plane and at the aerobridge going to the immigration area. Aside from the footbath, notice to travelers are also posted requiring them to declare all goods purchased or acquired abroad and brought to the Philippines.
