MANILA, Philippines — Muli na namang umatake ang grupong Anonymous Philippines at 14 na pamahalaang ang kanilang sinabotahe.

Kabilang sa naapektuhang websites na target ng mga hactivist ang website ng Optical Media Board, Philippine Nuclear Research Institute, Department of Health, at maging ang Twitter account ng Department of Social Welfare and Development. Apektado rin ang websites ng Senado at ng Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas.

Simula noong nakaraang linggo, umabot na sa 27 website ang na-hack ng grupo.

Ang hakbang na ito ay bilang protesta sa ipinasang Cybercrime Prevention Law na ipinatutupad na ngayong araw (Oktubre 03).

Samantala, nagsimula nang kumilos ang PNP upang matukoy ang mga responsible sa naturang pananabotahe sa websites ng pamahalaan.

“Identify sino, then tingnan (sa) batas (kung) ano (ang) specific violation (then) file case,” pahayag ni P/Supt. Generoso Cerbo Jr., Spokesman ng PNP.

Kahit wala pang naghahain ng reklamo sa kanila kaugnay sa sunod-sunod na pag atake sa mga website ng pamahalaan, otomatiko nang nagsagawa ng imbestigasyon ang PNP dahil maging ang website ng Police Community Relations Group ay na-hack din nitong Martes.
Ayon sa opisyal, ang naturang hacking activities ay isang malinaw na pruweba na kailangan ang naturang batas.

“In the absence of law, may panlalamang. (Kung) walang applicable na batas, napapabayaan,” pahayag ng opisyal.

Nanindigan naman ang pulisya na hindi nila gagamitin ang bagong batas para mang abuso. (Victor Cosare/Marje Navarro, UNTV News)

DOH pushes for mandatory vaccination of children anew

FILE PHOTO: Some medical experts said the number of people getting vaccinated has dropped to 50- 80% when the issue of Dengvaxia Vaccine broke out.

MANILA, Philippines – The Department of Health (DOH) on Tuesday (July 9) pushed for the implementation of mandatory immunization of children anew amid slumping vaccination coverage due to the controversial dengue vaccine, Dengvaxia.

During a school-based immunization program in Valenzuela City, Health Francisco Duque III stressed the importance of vaccination among schoolchildren to protect them from various diseases.

He said he has been pushing to make immunization mandatory in the country but the proposal is still up for discussion with stakeholders and lawmakers.

“I think we can push for that but like most other pieces of legislation, this has to undergo broad and deep consultations,” Duque said.

The government’s immunization coverage suffered a decline by 30 percent in 2018 due to Dengvaxia scare.

The health official previously suggested for the government to seriously consider compulsory vaccination of children following the outbreak of measles in Metro Manila, Central Luzon, Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, and Quezon) and Western Visayas.

Duque said the proposed mandatory immunization program will only provide proven safe vaccine shots against polio, Diptheria, measles, tuberculosis and human papillomavirus (HPV).

Valenzuela City Representative Wes Gatchalian agreed with Duque’s sentiments, saying a law is needed to enforce the program.

“It’s a separate legislation. Hindi itong pwedeng isingit na lang sa IRR, isang bagay na hindi na lang natin pwedeng ipasok na lang sa bibig ng mga magulang for them to accept,” Gatchalian said.

The DOH recently relaunched its school-based immunization program which aims to vaccinate some nine million students this year.

Duque said the program is eyeing to immunize students from kindergarten to Grade 7 with the measles and rubella vaccine. Students will also be given booster doses of tetanus-diphtheria vaccines.

On Tuesday, the DOH visited the Apolonia Rafael Elementary School in Valenzuela City for its vaccination program. (with details from Aiko Miguel)
