0 12

The Palawan Provincial Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) has continued to strictly monitor the enforcement of health protocols particularly in the borders of each town.

“Ang nakikita nating movement ay maganda yung containment [ng mga LGUs], yung pag-implement ng border containment at granular lockdown sa ibang munisipyo gaya ng Coron, Brooke’s Point, at sa Roxas ay maayos at [kasama] yung pagbabantay involving barangays at volunteers as COVID marshalls,” said PDRRMO and EOC Manager Jerry Alili.

“Although mahirap ito dahil local transmission, yung efforts ng government will only be successful kung may cooperation mula sa ating mga kababayan…”, he continued.

While the Provincial IATF sees rising COVID-19 cases in the province, they assured that Palawan LGUs are implementing strictly the health protocols based on the National IATF guidelines.

“Itong Prevent-Detect-Isolate-Treat-Reintegrate (PDITR) action plan, ‘yan ang ginagawa natin at mga LGUs although aminado tayo na mayroong ilang kakulangan pagdating sa detection dahil sa ngayon ang ating means of detection ay sa pamamagitan ng Rapid Antigen Test tapos yung mga magpa-positive rito ay mag-undergo ng RT-PCR test sa ONP at sa Culion Sanitarium and General Hospital…”, paliwanag pa ni Alili.

“We assure yung ating mga kababayan na ang Provincial Government is doing everything para ma-control yung ating situation… Nakikiusap din tayo na iwasan muna ang malalaking pagtitipon o mass gathering upang maiwasan ang mabilis na pagkalat ng virus.”
