Here is a link to our NC Cooperative Extension web fact sheet on Apple Fireblight. I am not sure how this will apply in your country particularly related to chemical recommendations. Spraying is only done during flowering as this web page indicates. When damage is seen the only solutions is to prune it out and disinfect pruning tools between cuts. Here is the fact sheet:
