Palace: No return to ECQ amid rising COVID cases

By Prince Golez

Despite rising Covid-19 cases, Malacañang said the government is unlikely to declare an enhanced community quarantine this month.

“For the month of March, I don’t think it is called for,” Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said in a virtual presser Monday.

Roque added that healthcare facilities in the country are now prepared to treat severely ill Covid-19 patients.

“Talagang datos po ang ating pinagbabasehan. Sabihin na nating dumami ang kaso pero nakikita natin na handa tayong gamutin yung seryosong nagkakasakit,” according to him.

“Inaatasan na po natin ang lahat, kasama na po ang ating lokal na pamahalaan, na hindi lang paigtingin ang ating minimum health standards, ipatupad na natin yung ating institutional isolation ng mga nagkakasakit, kinakailang paigtingin na natin ang ating tracing at i-isolate din natin ang mga tao na nagkaroon ng close contact at bigyan [sila ng] PCR test,” he added.

The Philippines recorded more than 3,000 new Covid-19 infections for the past three days.

Fake news! Mikey Arroyo denies getting unauthorized Covovax vaccine

By Billy Begas

Pampanga Rep. Juan Miguel “Mikey” Arroyo on Monday denied reports that he has received a shot of Covovax, a vaccine that has yet to secure an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).

In a text message to Politiko, Arroyo, who heads the House Committee on Energy denied the claim of Mayor Charlton Uy of Cabatuan, Isabela.

“Its inaccurate and false,” said Arroyo, son of former President and Speaker Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.

Uy reportedly mentioned Arroyo’s supposed inoculation with Covovax in a Facebook video. The former presidential son said he no longer wanted to let the issue drag on.

Covovax is a vaccine developed by US biotechnology company na Novavax against COVID-19. It is being manufactured by Serum Institute of India.

‘Wag mag-panic! COVID hospitals not yet at full capacity, says Palace

By Prince Golez

Malacañang clarified on Monday that healthcare facilities receiving patients with coronavirus disease (Covid-19) have not reached full capacity.

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque was responding to circulating posts that hospitals were already full past capacity because of rising cases of Covid-19.

“Puno na ba ang ospital natin? Hindi pa po. Meron pa tayong 60 percent available na ICU beds, meron pa tayong 65 percent available na isolation beds, meron pa tayong 75 percent available na ward beds, at 77 percent available ventilators,” Roque said in a televised briefing.

The secretary assured the public that there is no need to panic because the country has improved its healthcare capacity during Covid-19 lockdown.

“Dapat bang mag panic. Hindi po. Bakit? Dahil nga po tayo ay nagsarado para i-improve ang ating kakayahan na gamutin ang mga seryosong magkakasakit,” he added.
