Pagbabawal sa non-essential face-to-face gathering sa Davao City, pinalawig hanggang Sept. 2022

Robie de Guzman   •   January 6, 2022

Pinalawig pa ng lokal na pamahalaan ng Davao City ang pagbabawal sa non-essential physical gatherings sa mga opisina ng gobyerno sa lungsod.

Sa bisa ng Executive Order No. 69 na nilagdaan ni Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, extended hanggang Setyembre ngayong taon ang pagbabawal sa mga non-essential face-to-face events sa lahat ng opisina ng gobyerno dahil na rin sa banta ng paglitaw ng Omicron at iba pang variant ng COVID-19.

Sakop ng kautusan ang mga barangay, local, national government offices, agencies at instrumentalities, gayundin ang Government-owned and -controlled corporations (GOCC).

Layunin ng kautusan na maiwasan ang hawaan at muling pagtaas ng kaso ng COVID-19 sa lungsod.

Suspendido rin kahit ang mga maituturing na essential activities gaya ng face-to-face trainings at seminars, kung ito ay hindi naman emergency.

Ang pamamahagi ng food o non-food items na walang kaugnayan sa kalamidad at mga emergency na sitwasyon ay dapat ring ipamahagi via house-to-house sa pamamagitan ng contactless delivery.

Ang tangi lamang pinapayagang pagtitipon sa local government agencies ay ang pagsasagawa online ng mga sumusunod na aktibidad:

  • inauguration
  • anniversary
  • thanksgiving
  • ribbon-cutting
  • blessing
  • turnover
  • groundbreaking activity
  • launching program
  • salo-salo
  • birthday
  • press conferences
  • oath taking program
  • photo opportunity
  • retirement honors
  • welcome honors
  • testimonial programs
  • summer outing
  • team building

Sa kasalukuyan ay nasa 79 ang aktibong kaso ng COVID-19 sa Davao City.

Pero pinaghahandaan na ng lokal na pamahalaan ang posibilidad ng pagdami ng kaso sa susunod na mga linggo dahil sa kakatapos lamang na holiday season at posibleng pagpasok ng Omicron variant sa lungsod. (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Lucille Lloren)

Presidential aspirants launch relief assistance to areas affected by Typhoon Odette

Maris Federez   •   December 17, 2021

 

MANILA, Philippines — Presidential aspirant Senator Manny Pacquiao has called on his fellow aspirants to join forces in extending assistance to areas affected by the onslaught of Typhoon Odette.

Pacquiao made the appeal through his Facebook and Twitter accounts, asking other candidates in the 2022 national elections to set aside politics and join together to help the typhoon victims.

Vice President Leni Robredo, in her reply via twitter, signified her support to Pacquiao’s call.

Pacquiao thanked the vice president and offered the cargo plane he chartered to bring assistance to those affected by Typhoon Odette.

The two candidates committed to having close coordination to implement the said activity.

Meanwhile, VP Robredo said she also personally lead in receiving in-kind donations and preparing the same for distribution to the typhoon victims.

“Para mas mapabilis ang pagkilos natin, nandito po ako ngayon sa ating Campaign Volunteer Center sa Katipunan Avenue, Quezon City, which we will be converting into a relief hub. We also convened our operations center dito,” Robredo said.

“Starting today, puwede na pong mag-drop off ng mga in-kind donations dito,” she added.

Robredo also appealed for volunteers to help them in repacking the goods. Details of this, she said, will be posted on their official FB page.

Meanwhile, Labor leader Leody de Guzman also responded to Pacquiao’s call.

He volunteered his group to help in the distribution of the relief goods.

“Tama yun. Napapanahon yung ganyang panawagan. Yung maraming pera, yung may bilyon bilyon 3-5 billion na uubusin na eleksyon ay maganda yung kalahati niyan ibigay sa mga taga Mindanao dahil sa nangangailangan sila duon. Katulad ko at Rj nakahanda kami sa makinarya sa distribusyon ng kanilang ipamimigay,” de Guzman said.

Senator Panfilo Lacson, on the other hand, said that should Senator Pacquiao made his appeal personal through private communication, he could have acquiesced and joined the call.

He said he will also send his reply privately and will offer his resources.

But since, Lacson said, the appeal was made through social media, responding to it will violate his principles, saying ‘calamity politics’ is the lowest form of campaigning.

“Since it was done through media – it goes against my principled belief that ‘calamity politics’ is the lowest form of campaigning. In fact, I consider it abominable,” Lacson said.

As in the past, he and his friends and supporters send help to those affected by calamities without media coverage.

“As in the past calamities, my Senate office, as well as friends and supporters, assisted without fanfare and without any media coverage. We did it in Cagayan Valley, and Bicol region, and some other areas hit by strong typhoons,” he said.

He emphasized that election or no election, his team is always ready to help.

For his part, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno asked the city council led by its Presiding officer Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna to hold a special session and pass a resolution to allocate funds to be used in sending help to families affected by Typhoon Odette.

“I have already asked the presiding officer of the City Council, Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna, to immediately hold a special session and a resolution be passed allocating a certain sum of money for the typhoon victims in the Visayas and Mindanao,” Mayor Isko said.

Moreno’s camp has also launched a donation drive and urged the participation of all who can help and coordinate with his office.

Meanwhile, the tandem of former Senator Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio used their volunteers in distributing relief goods in areas hit by Typhoon Odette.

The BBM-Sara Uniteam prepared relief packs containing 5 kilos of rice, canned goods, milk, and coffee.

On his Facebook page, Marcos thanked all who sent help to his office and their headquarters.

“Marami pong salamat sa lahat ng nagparating ng agarang tulong sa ating mga tanggapan at headquarters. Mahalagang maitawid ito sa ating mga kababayan sa lalong madaling panahon,” Marcos said.

“Ipakita natin ang pagbabayanihang Pilipino na siyang magbabangon sa atin mula anumang sakuna,” he added. —/mbmf (from the report of UNTV Correspondent Nel Maribojoc)
