MANILA, Philippines — 2,000 bags ng dugo ang kailangan araw-araw sa buong bansa.

Upang masapatan ito, target ng Philippine Blood Disease and Transfusion Center o PBDTC na makakolekta ng 7,000 blood units buwan–buwan para sa 20-libong indibiduwal.

Ang PBDTC ay isang sangay ng Department of Health na nasa ilalim ng pamamahala ng East Avenue Medical Center.

“Its primary goal is to provide adequate good and safe blood for all the Filipinos”, pahayag ni PBDTC OIC Executive Director Dra. Ma. Victoria Abesamis.

Dahil dito hinihikayat ng PBDTC ang publiko na mag-donate ng dugo.

Magsasagawa ng mobile blood donation activity ang ahensya at makikipag ugnayan ito sa iba’t ibang grupo

“In our center, individual can walk in. One individual or group of friends can come here mon to friday 8-5 and they will be tested and blood can be drawn from them.”

Ayon kay Dra. Abesamis, bukod sa nakakatulong sa kapwa ay may benepisyo pang nakukuha ang isang blood donor dahil napapalitan ng bagong blood cells ang nawalang dugo.

Sa pamamagitan din ng pagdo-donate ng dugo, nalalaman kung may karamdaman ang isang blood donor.

“5 exam routinely. Hepa B, Hepa C, HIV, malaria, syphilis. Itong routine ginagawa, safe and quality.”

Maari ding dumulog sa kanila ang mga nangangailangan ng dugo. Dalhin lamang ang blood request mula sa blood bank ng ospital sa  at magdala ng styrofoam bag na may yelo.

1,200 pesos ang babayarang processing fee kada bag ng dugo. (Victor Cosare, UNTV News)

Ombudsman suspends 5 DOH officials for delay in release of frontliner benefits

Aileen Cerrudo   •   October 28, 2020

The Office of the Ombudsman has ordered a preventive suspension against five Department of Health (DOH) officials for the alleged delays in the release of frontliner benefits.

Ombudsman Samuel Martires signed the order on Tuesday (October 27) to preventively suspend for six months Health Undersecretary Roger Tong-an; Kenneth Ronquillo, Maylene Beltran, Laureano Cruz and Esperanza Carating.

The order is to prevent the officials from potentially tampering with documents or evidence while an investigation on the health department is ongoing.

The investigation was opened in June to look into the alleged delay in the procurement of Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) and other medical gears, alleged lapses that led to the rising number of health workers infected with the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), inaction to the release of financial benefits for fallen medical workers, as well as confusing and delayed reports of COVID-19 cases in the country.

The DOH previously welcomed the said investigation and assured they will fully cooperate with the appropriate authorities. AAC

The Philippines records a total of 1,509 new cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) with 362,243 total cases, the Department of Health (DOH) reported on Wednesday (October 21).

The DOH also recorded 60 deaths and 911 recoveries. The day’s recorded recoveries brought the total number to 311,506.

Based on DOH COVID-19 Case Bulletin no. 221, 90% of the total daily cases occurred within the recent 14 days, while the top regions in the recent two weeks are in the National Capital Region (NCR) with 320 cases, and Region 4A with 297 cases.

The DOH also added that 41 duplicates were removed from the total case count. Thirty-one recovered cases and three deaths have also been removed from the list.

The University of the Philippines Octa Research Team said there are still areas with high COVID-19 cases since October 11, based on their research. These areas include several areas in the National Capital Region (NCR), Pasig, Makati, Pasay, Mandaluyong, and Marikina.

Meanwhile, DOH Spokesperson Usec. Maria Rosario Vergeire said 60-70% of the country’s population should be vaccinated against COVID-19 for herd immunity.

“It doesn’t stop there because we would need 60-70% of the population immunized so we can have herd immunity. So when we talk about P12.5 billion that is just covering our population,” she said. AAC (with reports from Aiko Miguel)
