MANILA, Philippines – Puspusan na ang ginagawang pageensayo ng national diving team ng Pilipinas sa paglahok sa 2013 Southeast Asian Games sa Myanmar sa Disyembre.
Nitong nakaraang lingo, lumahok ang Philippine Diving team sa 2nd Club Punta Fuego Cliff Diving Invitational Challenge sa Nasugbo, Batangas.
Tinanghal na kampeon sa senior men’s category si 2003 Southeast Asian Games gold medalist Rexel Ryan Fabriga.
Ayon kay Rexel, bahagi pa rin ito ng kanilang ginagawang paghahanda para sa Myanmar SEA Games.
“Nag-practice lang po kami ng maigi, bale pinaghandaan po talaga namin, kasama yung bago kung coach na si Coach Brian. Nagpapasalamat po ako sa lahat ng tumulong sa Philippine diving team,” pasasalamat ni Rexel.
Ayon sa beteranong diver, pinag-aaralan nila ngayon ang ilang mahihirap na skills na kanilang gagamitin sa nalalapit na biennial sporting event sa Mayanmar.
Asahan umano na ibibigay ng pambansang koponan ang lahat ng kanilang makakaya sa nasabing kompetisyon.
“Wala naman nagagawang maayos kung pa-relax-relax lang. Kailangan pagpursigihan kung ano yung gusto mong makamit. Gagawin po namin ang lahat ng makakaya namin ngayong darating na SEA Games sa Myanmar. Asahan nyo po na ibibigay po namin yung pinaka the best namin.”
Noong 2011 SEA Games, nakapag-uwi ang Philippine diving team ng isang gold medal at dalawang silver. (Ryan Ramos & Ruth Navales, UNTV News)

PAMPANGA, Philippines — The sample of bird flu-affected chicken that the Department of Agriculture (DA) sent to an Australian laboratory from San Luis, Pampanga, tested positive of H5N6 virus.
According to the focal person of the National Avian Influenza Dr. Arlene Vytiaco, there were less than 20 recorded deaths due to the strain in 2013, most of them were from China whose jobs were directly handling poultry animals.
“Ang morbidity is yung infection niya sa tao, yung transmission nya sa tao. Very low yan tapos yung mortality rate pa nya is even lower (The morbidity is its transmission to humans. It’s very low. The mortality rate is even lower),” Dr. Vytiaco said.
She added that there was also presence of N6 strain in Southeast Asia particularly in Myanmar, Lao and Vietnam but there was no recorded human transmission.
Two farm workers from ground zero of bird flu outbreak in San Luis, Pampanga tested negative of the virus by the Department of Health (DOH).
The Department of Agriculture (DA), meanwhile, is confident that the virus is contained in the 7-km radius controlled zone in San Luis, Pampanga, in Jaen and San Isidro in Nueva Ecija.
“The fact that the farm workers have been there since April and none of them got sick is an assurance that it’s not that serious,” DA Sec. Manny Piñol said.
Bird flu can be transmitted to humans thru the dust from the bird’s feather.
“So if nadikit yan sa body mo or halimbawa sa hand mo tapos nagganyan ka di ba o kinamot mo ang mata mo so may port of entry na,” Dr. Vytiaco said.
(So if it had contact with your body or for example you moved your hand like this or you scratched your eyes so there are points of entry.)
Some of the symptoms of infection in humans are fatigue, loss of appetite and cough and colds.
But Dr. Vytiaco said, N6 is a weaker strain as compared to N1 which can lead to more deaths.
“Ang N1 yan ang talagang nung kasagsagan nya 2003-2004 talagang medyo mataas ang mortality nya it reached 58% if I’m not mistaken among human,” Dr. Vytiaco added.
(The N1 during its peak in 2003-2004 the mortality is higher it reached 58% if I’m not mistaken among humans.)
The department assured the public that the chickens being sold in markets are safe to eat.
And as proof, President Rodrigo Duterte will go to Pampanga on Monday to try a variety of chicken dishes. – Rey Pelayo | UNTV News & Rescue
