At the same time, we offer our continuing support and partnership,as there are many more OFWs we could serve during this, perhaps, greatestchallenge of our generation,” according to Cacdac. OnMonday, Treñas accused OWWA of violating protocols when it returned to Iloilothe OFWs in Cebu, thereby compromising the health and safety of 32 citygovernment health workers and staff, six personnel of the city’s Public Safetyand Transportation Management Office, 14 personnel of the Philippine CoastGuard, and 42 crew of shipping line Cokaliong.  Ina statement issued yesterday, Administrator Hans Cacdac stressed OWWA wasguided by two IATF-EID resolutions. These were thefollowing: “Ourpeople on the ground in both Regions 6 and 7 guided the three OFWs and around20 other Ilonggo OFWs that night of April 8 — before, during and after the boattrip from Cebu to Iloilo City. We kept them company and guided them. And wewish to assure them that we shall maintain our assistance, because this is howwe are at OWWA. We treat our dear OFWs as more than family. If they arehealthy, we help them with whatever needs they may have. If they are sick, wehelp them even more,” Cacdac said. Theyleft Cebu with Medical Certificates from the DOH-Bureau of Quarantine or theCebu City Health Department issued on April 2, April 6, and April 8,respectively, stressed Cacdac. Threeof the OFWs from Cebu tested positive for the coronavirus disease 2019(COVID-19) in a rapid test, said Treñas, and in the subsequent confirmatorytest, one of them against tested positive.

Re-nationalization of Negros district hospital sought

first_imgBY DOMINIQUE GABRIEL BAÑAGA Arroyo recently introduced House Bill (HB) No. 6963 for this. She pointed out the re-nationalization of the 25-bed health facility in Isabela town will allow better focus on the provision and improvement of the delivery of health care services and its existing facilities through appropriate funding support from the Department of Health. “Reverting back the Ignacio Lacson Arroyo Sr. Hospital from the local government unit to the national government will pave the way for the development of the hospital in order to continuously provide effective and efficient health care services,” Arroyo said. “Since the decentralization of the health services, ILASMDH has become dependent on the share of the local government units from the 40 percent internal revenue allotment from the national government. It is also worthy to note that the internal revenue allocation of the LGUs is still apportioned to different priority programs of the LGUs,” she said. BACOLOD City – Fifth District Rep. Ma. Lourdes Arroyo of Negros Occidental is pushing to revert to the national government the direct control and supervision of the Ignacio Lacson Arroyo Sr. Medical District Hospital (ILASMDH) currently devolved to the provincial government. “At present, the hospital’s authorized bed capacity and actual hospital bed occupancy rate [are] mismatched,” Arroyo said. She noted that in 1993, the hospital was devolved to the provincial government of Negros Occidental upon the enactment of the Local Government Code aimed at decentralizing essential public services such as health and social services. She lamented that the hospital has only three doctors, and each doctor is being required to go on 24-hour duty nine times a month. “Unfortunately, it has been downgraded from Level 1 to infirmary level and continuous to exceed its standard bed capacity due to the volume of patients,” she said. Arroyo noted that in 2016, ILASMDH served 3,262 indigent patients; 1,183 of them were treated from January to June 2019. HB 6963 seeks to increase ILASMDH’s operating fund, upgrade its medical equipment and facilities, and construct its needed infrastructure. Negros Occidental 5th district Rep. Ma. Lourdes “Marilou” T. Arroyo (Facebook / MANILA BULLETIN) The bill seeks to “adopt an integrated and comprehensive quality health services that will cater patients in the five municipalities and one city in the fifth district of Negros Occidental as well as its neighboring municipalities,” Arroyo said./PNlast_img read more

Man City’s pair test positive for COVID-19

first_img The 2019-20 Premier League season was halted in March because of the pandemic and resumed behind closed doors in mid-June, at which point the league was administering regular testing. However, there has been a rise in positive cases across the sport in recent weeks, with some European borders having opened again. Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain, who are due to begin their domestic campaign on Thursday, last week revealed six positive cases among their squad. The first match of the Ligue 1 season was postponed last month after Marseille confirmed they had multiple coronavirus cases in their squad. Riyad Mahrez and Aymeric Laporte have both tested positive for coronavirus, Manchester City have confirmed. The Premier League side revealed the duo had contracted COVID-19, though they were displaying no symptoms, and were currently self-isolating. The 2020-21 Premier League season begins on Saturday, September 12, though City’s first fixture in the competition is against Wolves on September 21, in 14 days’ time. A club statement from City read: “Manchester City FC can confirm that Riyad Mahrez and Aymeric Laporte have tested positive for COVID-19. “Both players are currently observing a period of self-isolation in accordance with Premier League and UK Government protocol on quarantine. Neither is displaying symptoms of the virus. “Everyone at the club wishes Riyad and Aymeric a speedy recovery ahead of their return to training and the new season.” Shortly after City released their statement, winger Mahrez tweeted: “Thank you for all the nice messages, I’m good.
