MANILA, Philippines – Kasalukuyang naka-confine at sumasailalim sa operasyon sa East Avenue Medical Center ang 13 taong gulang na si Maybelle Juanitas matapos tamaan ng ligaw na bala sa ulo.

Ayon sa tiyahin ng biktima na si Evelyn Suan, nasa labas ng kanilang bahay ang bata kasama ang kanyang mga kaibigan nang bigla na lamang itong bumagsak.

Nagawa pa umanong makatayo at makapasok ng bahay ang bata ngunit nakaramdam na ito ng pagkahilo at pagsusuka.

Agad namang isinugod sa ospital ng Tala ang biktima kagabi ng alas-11, at inilipat sa East Avenue Medical Center ala-7 ng umaga ngayong Huwebes upang ma-CT scan.

Halos maiyak naman ang tiyahin ng biktima dahil sa galit lalo pa’t nagbabakasyon lamang ang pamangkin nito sa kanilang lugar sa Brgy. San Jose, Tala sa Caloocan upang magdiwang ng bagong taon.

“Galit talaga ako sa nagpaputok ng baril, sana makonsensya naman siya at lumabas na, kasi walang alam yung bata eh,” saad ni Evelyn, tiyahin ng biktima.

Nananawagan din ang mga kaanak ni Maybelle na mahuli ang mga may sala at matigil na ang pagpapaputok ng baril.

Samantala, sa ulat ng Department of Health, mula sa 11 kaso ng stray bullets noong 2013 ay bumaba ito ngayong 2014 sa apat na kaso.

Ayon kay Acting Health Secretary Janette Garin, malaki ang naitulong ng kampanya ng Philippine National Police at DILG. (Earl Camillo / Ruth Navales, UNTV News)

DOH, EAMC deny order to stop counting of COVID-19 fatalities

MANILA, Philippines — The East Avenue Medical Center (EAMC) on Saturday (April 11) denied allegations that it has received directives from the Department of Health (DOH) to halt the counting of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) fatalities.

This stemmed from reports of bodies supposedly piling up at hospitals instead of being cremated, and of hospitals in Quezon City allegedly being told not to do a census on deaths.

On a Twitter post, DOH Secretary Francisco Duque III said that “the DOH did NOT and will NEVER issue a directive for hospitals to conceal the number of COVID-19 deaths.”

The DOH chief also vowed to have the issue immediately investigated.

Dr. Alfonso G Nuñez III, OIC Medical Center Chief II, in an official statement, also said they were not told to hold back tallying and reporting of fatalities related to the novel coronavirus disease.

“Deaths related to COVID-19 in East Avenue Medical Center are still being recorded and reported to the Department of Health Regional Epidemiology and Surveillance Unit,” the statement read.

As part of the investigation, the health department on Sunday (April 12) conducted an investigation and a conference with the EAMC officials to address the said issues and concerns. – mbmf
