QC court grants TRO on LTO’s plastic license card procurement

A preliminary injunction has been handed down by the Quezon City Regional Trial Court Branch 215 following the lapses of the temporary restraining order it issued over the Land Transportation Office's procurement of plastic cards for driver's licenses. QC-RTC Branch 215 Judge Rafael Hipolito granted the petition filed by AllCard Inc. that questioned the procurement contract awarded to Banner Plastic Card Inc., which submitted a bid of P219 million inclusive of taxes for procuring the license cards, higher than the P177 million bid of AllCard Inc. A post-qualification evaluation disqualified AllCard due to "delays" in another project involving the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) and other government agencies. LTO chief Asst. Sec. Vigor Mendoza immediately expressed that it would be a big setback to the project which would stop the deliveries of the plastic cards which may add another two-month delay. "Once effective, mahihinto ang supplier natin. Hindi na siya pwedeng magdeliver... Dati goodbye papel, eto welcome back although the injunction is not yet effective," he said in a radio interview. "Ang maaapektuhan 'yung current usage, 'yung dapat kasi nung Oktubre if you filed a license in October you would get it automatically. Ngayon mapapahinto natin 'yan dahil magkukulang tayo ng card," he added. The post QC court grants TRO on LTO’s plastic license card procurement appeared first on Daily Tribune......»»

Davao de Oro flood victims receive aid from Bong Go

Senator Christopher “Bong” Go’s team extended assistance to residents recovering from recent flooding in Pantukan, Davao de Oro on Wednesday, 30 August. In a video message, Go acknowledged local officials, including Governor Dodot Gonzaga, Vice Governor Tyron Uy, and Mayor Leonel Ceniza, for their prompt response to the needs of the affected families. Go's team distributed masks, shirts, and vitamins to 649 flood victims present at Barangay Napnapan covered court. They also gave away shoes, mobile phones, watches, and balls for basketball and volleyball. The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) also extended financial assistance through the Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situation program. Congressman Ruwel Gonzaga, Board Member Ruwina Gonzaga, and former governor Arturo Uy were present during the event. “Alam ko pong mahirap ang panahon ngayon pero magtiwala lang ho kayo sa gobyerno. Kayo po ang nagbibigay ng lakas sa amin upang makapagserbisyo pa po sa abot ng aming makakaya para malampasan natin ang krisis at sana po’y makabalik na tayo sa ating normal na pamumuhay,” said Go. Go also stressed the urgent need for a comprehensive and coordinated disaster management approach. He highlighted the importance of Senate Bill No. 188, which proposes the establishment of the Department of Disaster Resilience (DDR). SBN 188 aims to consolidate all disaster-related agencies and functions into a single entity to streamline efforts and enhance disaster response efficiency. By elevating DDR to a Cabinet secretary-level department, the government can better allocate resources, develop improved disaster risk reduction strategies, and promptly aid affected communities, especially those from vulnerable sectors, cited Go. “Dapat na may nakatutok talaga na may awtoridad at malinaw na mandato. Hindi na puwedeng laging task force na lang dahil temporary lang ito at nawawala ang continuity kapag nagpalit na ng administrasyon. Mahirap din kung mananatiling coordinating council lang ang mamamahala sa ganitong sitwasyon dahil sa kakulangan ng kapangyarihan nito,” Go earlier explained. “Dapat ay departamento sana na may Cabinet-level na kalihim na in-charge para may kapangyarihan at kakayahang i-mobilize ang buong gobyerno kapag kinakailangan. Magkakaroon siya ng personalidad na diretsong isasangguni sa ibang departamento ang pangangailangan ng mga taong apektado ng krisis,” he added. As chairperson of the Senate Committee on Health and Demography, Go took the opportunity to emphasize the importance of prioritizing health for the residents. He encouraged them to avail of medical assistance through the Malasakit Centers, conveniently located at Davao de Oro Provincial Hospital branches in Laak, Montevista, Maragusan, and Pantukan, as well as the Davao Regional Medical Center in nearby Tagum City. Initiated by Go in 2018, the Malasakit Centers serve as one-stop shops, bringing together multiple government agencies such as DSWD, Department of Health (DOH), Philippine Health Insurance Corporation, and Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office, to ensure medical assistance programs are accessible by indigent Filipinos. Go is the principal author and sponsor of Republic Act No. 11463, commonly known as the Malasakit Centers Act of 2019. The program has demonstrated its effectiveness nationwide, benefiting over seven million Filipinos, as reported by DOH. Go also highlighted the role of Super Health Centers in making quality healthcare services accessible to all Filipinos, especially those living in remote and underserved areas. Go also stressed that no Filipino should be left behind when it comes to receiving proper medical attention and treatment. In 2022, the Super Health Centers in Davao de Oro commenced construction in Montevista, Nabunturan, and Mawab. This year, there will be two centers in the town, and one each in Monkayo and Compostela. “Ang kagandahan nito early detection at magagamit ito sa pagkokonsulta and it will help decongest the hospital dahil pwede na pong gamutin dito. At ilalagay po ito sa mga strategic areas. Ilalagay nila sa isang barangay kung saan po’y makaka-access ‘yung mga kababayan natin, hindi na nila kailangan pang magbiyahe pa sa Poblacion, hindi na nila kailangang magbiyahe pa sa provincial hospital. Pwede na pong gamutin dito, early detection mas maganda po ‘yon para hindi na lumala ang sakit ng mga pasyente,” Go said. He also underscored the importance of bringing specialized medical services closer to communities by establishing dedicated specialty centers in regional hospitals under the DOH. Go is the principal sponsor and one of the authors of RA 11959 or the Regional Specialty Centers Act. The newly enacted law includes provisions for the establishment of specialty centers within existing government-controlled corporations or specialty hospitals. It also outlines the specific service capabilities that DOH will implement in regional hospitals. Go, vice chairperson of the Senate Committee on Finance, has actively supported various infrastructure projects in Davao de Oro. His contributions include the construction of a multipurpose building in Compostela; construction of the Monkayo, Compostela Valley-Veruela Road; and improvement of the public market in Monkayo. Other major initiatives he supported include the construction of the Nabunturan-Maco and Nabunturan-Laak roads; the installation of street lights in Nabunturan; the rehabilitation of the local roads and bridges in New Bataan; and the concreting of the local access road in Pantukan.

Principal Sponsor Bong Go lauds signing of Regional Specialty Centers Act

Senator Christopher “Bong” Go, principal sponsor and one of the authors of the Regional Specialty Centers (RSC) Act, commended the signing of the measure into law by President Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. “I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to President Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. for recognizing the importance of this legislation and signing it into law. His support has been instrumental in bringing specialized medical care closer to our fellow Filipinos,” said Go. "Walang Pilipino ang dapat mapag-iwanan pagdating sa kalusugan. Ang bawat Pilipino ay may karapatan sa de-kalidad na serbisyong medikal, kahit saan man sila sa bansa," he stressed. The law aims to create additional specialty centers in various regions, ensuring that Filipinos have access to specialized medical services. “With the signing of this law, we are taking a giant leap in improving access to specialized medical care and bringing these services closer to Filipinos in need," said Go. "Now, our countrymen suffering from severe illnesses won't have to travel to Manila for treatment at specialty hospitals like the Philippine Heart Center or Lung Center,” he added. The newly enacted law includes provisions for the establishment of specialty centers within existing government-controlled corporations or specialty hospitals. It also outlines the specific service capabilities that the Department of Health (DOH) will implement in regional hospitals. “By setting clear standards, we are ensuring that these specialty centers will have the necessary expertise and resources to cater to patients' specialized medical needs effectively across the country,” Go added. The law also details the medical specialties that DOH must prioritize in the establishment of these centers. Go also expressed his appreciation for the collaborative efforts of his fellow legislators in crafting a comprehensive law. “Isa pong malaking tagumpay para sa atin ang pagiging ganap na batas ng SBN 2212, o ang Regional Specialty Centers Act. Isa po tayo sa author at tayo rin ang principal sponsor nito sa Senado. Nakakuha ito ng 24-0 na boto sa Senado dahil sa pagsang-ayon ng aking mga kasamahan na makakabuti ito para sa lahat,” Go shared. “Ang mga pasyente na nangangailangan ng special medical care ay kinakailangan pang bumiyahe at gumastos para lang magpagamot sa mga specialty hospitals na ito. Pero hindi naman dapat mahirapan ang ating mga kababayan na maka-access sa serbisyo ng gobyerno lalo na pagdating sa usaping kalusugan. Ang gobyerno dapat ang maglapit ng serbisyo sa mga tao. Kaya sa ilalim ng bagong batas ay dadalhin na ang ganitong specialized medical services sa bawat rehiyon,” he added. “Umaasa tayo na sa pagtatayo ng specialty centers sa buong bansa ay lalo nating mapalalakas ang ating healthcare system at magiging accessible sa bawat Pilipino ang serbisyong medikal na kailangan nila para magkaroon ng malusog at matiwasay na buhay,” the senator explained further. According to DOH’s timeline, the establishment of specialty centers in the National Capital Region will take place in Amang Rodriguez Memorial Medical Center, Quirino Memorial Medical Center, East Avenue Medical Center, Tondo Medical Center, Jose R. Reyes Memorial Medical Center, Valenzuela Medical Center, Las Piñas General Hospital and Satellite Trauma Center, Rizal Medical Center, and Dr. Jose N. Rodriguez Memorial Hospital and Sanitarium. In Luzon, specialty centers will be established in Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center, Region I Medical Center, Ilocos Training and Regional Medical Center, Mariano Marcos Memorial Hospital and Medical Center, Cagayan Valley Medical Center, Region II Trauma and Medical Center, Southern Isabela Medical Center, Dr. Paulino J. Garcia Memorial Research and Medical Center, Bataan General Hospital and Medical Center, Mariveles Mental Wellness and General Hospital, Batangas Medical Center, Ospital ng Palawan, Culion Sanitarium and General Hospital, Bicol Medical Center, Bicol Region General Hospital, Geriatric Medical Center, Bicol Medical Center, and Bicol Regional Hospital and Medical Center. The Visayas region will witness the creation of specialty centers in Western Visayas Medical Center, Western Visayas Sanitarium and General Hospital, Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital, Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center, Governor Celestino Gallares Memorial Medical Center, and Eastern Visayas Medical Center. In Mindanao, specialty centers will be established in Zamboanga City Medical Center, Northern Mindanao Medical Center, Mayor Hilarion A. Ramiro Sr. Medical Center, Southern Philippines Medical Center, Davao Regional Medical Center, Cotabato Regional and Medical Center, Caraga Regional Hospital, Adela Serra Ty Memorial Medical Center, and Amai Pakpak Medical Center. “These specialty centers will reduce the need for travel to Metro Manila for specialized treatments. Our people will now have access to these services in regional DOH hospitals, enhancing their overall well-being and quality of life,” Go stated. “Ang batas na ito ay simbolo ng ating pagkakaisa at determinasyon na gawing abot-kamay ang specialized healthcare services para sa lahat," concluded Go.

Bong Go provides support to flood victims in Davao City

  In an effort to bolster the country's disaster preparedness and response capabilities, Senator Christopher "Bong" Go has been advocating for two crucial bills in the Senate that he earlier filed: Senate Bill No. (SBN) 188, which seeks to establish the Department of Disaster Resilience (DDR), and SBN 193, mandating the establishment of mandatory evacuation centers nationwide. On Saturday, July 29, Go led two relief operations for thousands of flood victims in Barangays Lasang and Bunawan in Davao City. In his speech, Go said that the government should remain proactive in its approach in dealing with disaster-related situations, considering that the country is highly vulnerable to natural calamities. SBN 188 proposes the creation of the DDR, an independent government agency dedicated to strengthening the nation's resilience against the impacts of natural and human-induced disasters. The DDR aims to consolidate disaster-related functions and resources from different agencies under a single, unified body. By streamlining disaster response efforts, the department can facilitate quicker and more efficient aid delivery to affected communities during times of crisis. “Importante po ito sa akin. Unang-una, halimbawa dito po sa Barangay Lasang, binaha sila. Di ba ang barangay po ang nakikipag-coordinate kaagad with the LGUs. Ito pong barangay level na pagbaha, how about ‘yung mga national level, o municipal level o city level, o province-wide na pagbaha… maayos na koordinasyon ang kailangan,” he said. “Bago dumating ang bagyo, balita pa lang sa PAGASA, coordination kaagad ng Department of Disaster Resilience, kung mayroon tayong isang departamentong nakatutok para sa mga disaster related… bago dumating ang bagyo, coordination with LGUs. Ilikas ang mga kababayan natin sa ligtas na lugar, dalahin sa mga evacuation center. Preposition of goods by the DSWD,” Go added. “Kailangan koordinasyon kaagad ng departamento na i-involve kaagad ang mga ibang departamento na kasamahan niya. DSWD preposition of goods, mga Coast Guard, Navy para ilikas agad ang mga kababayan natin sa ligtas na lugar at maayos na evacuation center, sa Department of Health para malinis ang evacuation center, sanitation para ligtas ang mga kababayan natin. At pag-alis ng bagyo, hindi lang puro task force, dapat isang departamento na pwedeng mag-coordinate hanggang makabalik sa normal na pamumuhay ang lugar na tinamaan ng bagyo. Restoration of normalcy kaagad at rehabilitation effort,” he said. The Office of Civil Defense has recently voiced its support for the establishment of the DDR, emphasizing the importance of such institution in improving operations in managing and responding to future crises. "Things can be better if there will be an independent authority or department, but it’s not that simple – tanggap po namin iyon… We leave it to Congress and we leave it to the Palace, to Malacañang. Meanwhile, kami naman, we are doing our best given the limitations, makakaasa po kayo," OCD Administrator Ariel Nepomuceno said in a past interview. Alongside the establishment of DDR, Go champions SBN 193, which calls for the creation of mandatory evacuation centers across the Philippines. These evacuation centers are designed to be equipped with necessary facilities to provide temporary shelter and essential services to evacuees during disasters. The senator noted that these evacuation centers will be strategically placed in areas less prone to hazards, ensuring the safety and well-being of evacuees during disasters. Furthermore, the centers will be equipped with essential amenities such as food, clean water, medical services, sanitation facilities, and temporary sleeping quarters. Go cited that the Philippines, located in the Pacific Ring of Fire and the typhoon belt, is no stranger to the destructive forces of nature. “Yearly, the country faces the threat of typhoons, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides, and other hazards. These disasters not only result in loss of lives and livelihoods but also impede economic progress and development,” shared Go. To minimize the devastating impact of disasters, Go underscored that comprehensive disaster resilience measures are imperative. The senator is confident that by supporting these priority bills, the Senate and the Filipino people can collectively work towards a safer, more resilient nation, where communities can recover swiftly and thrive even in the face of adversity. “Ang lugar natin nasa Pacific Ring of Fire tayo. Prone tayo sa mga bagyo, prone tayo sa pagputok ng bulkan, prone tayo sa sunog, ‘di ba? So dapat po ay magkaroon na tayo ng isang maayos na departamento, Department of Disaster Resilience at Mandatory Evacuation Center sa mga syudad, munisipyo, at probinsya para hindi magamit ang mga eskwelahan tuwing may mga sunog, baha. Nagagamit po ang eskwelahan, naantala ang pag-aaral ng mga bata dahil ginagamit po as evacuation center,” he said. Together with Councilors Dante Apostol, Marissa Abella, Diosdado Mahipus, and Al Ryan Alejandre, Go provided grocery packs, masks, vitamins, and snacks to 4,399 flood victims. The senator also extended shoes, mobile phones, bicycles, watches, and balls for basketball and volleyball to select recipients. Meanwhile, Go, chairperson of the Senate Committee on Health, urged those who have health issues to seek assistance from the Malasakit Center at the Southern Philippines Medical Center (SPMC) in Davao City. The Malasakit Centers Act of 2019, which Go principally authored and sponsored, brings together various government agencies, including the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), the Department of Health (DHOH), the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PHIC), and the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO), under one roof to provide a convenient process for availing medical assistance particularly for poor and indigent patients in public hospitals. There are now 158 Malasakit Centers nationwide which have assisted more than seven million Filipinos, according to DOH data. In SPMC alone, the Malasakit Center there has assisted more than 200,000 patients. On the same day, Go attended the ribbon-cutting of the multipurpose building in Brgy. Lasang and road concretion with drainage canal construction in Brgy. Bunawan, two infrastructure projects he supported the funding of as vice chairperson of the Senate Committee on Finance. He likewise supported the acquisition of multi-purpose vehicles for the community, construction of various multipurpose buildings and local roads, rehabilitation of water systems, drainage systems and flood control structures in different barangays throughout the city, the construction of a 300-bed capacity infectious diseases building for SPMC and the acquisition of ambulances, among others. ### The post Bong Go provides support to flood victims in Davao City appeared first on Daily Tribune......»»

Students to PBBM: Focus on inflation, education, public transport

Mau Manuel, a Gen-Z college student, asked what he wanted to hear from the second State of the Nation Address of President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. today, said the government should focus on inflation, which is hurting a lot of Filipinos. “Siguro, iyong i-prioritize talaga 'yung inflation ng prices,  kasi 'yun talaga ang currently natin na nararamdaman,” the 21-year-old college student told the Daily Tribune. In June, inflation was at 6.7 percent, a decrease from May's 7.4 percent. Manuel added that it is better for Marcos Jr. to prioritize first the country’s issues rather than his foreign trips. “I think mag focus na lamang siya sa bansa,” he said. “Kasi laging pangako siya ng pangako na may purpose 'yung travel yet wala naman akong naririnig na bumabalik (He always makes promises about the purpose of his travel but we don't seem to be gaining anything from it.)” Marcos Jr. had a total of 11 foreign trips since he started his six-year term last 30 June 2022, and is scheduled to go to Malaysia on 25 July. Education problems Meanwhile, some student-leaders urged the administration to address the root cause of problems in the education sector. “Bilang isang mag-aaral, nakakadismaya na ang edukasyon ay nagiging pribelehiyo na" (As a student, I am dismayed that education has become a privilege), said Marie Nerona, a 20-year-old college student, adding that the inaccessibility to free and quality education compromises the future of marginalized children in the country. “Karapatan natin ito, ngunit ang kakulangan sa pagtalakay ng isyu sa pagdaan ng panahon ay nagiging hadlang upang magkaroon o makamit ang kalidad na edukasyon para sa lahat” (We have a right to education, but the lack of discussion on the issue prevents us from achieving quality education for all), she stressed. With myriad problems bedeviling the educational system like the controversy over ROTC (in 2022, Marcos Jr. included the return of the mandatory ROTC in his legislative agenda), lack of resources in public schools and tuition increases, the Nerona said she is looking forward to how the President will address education in his speech. Transport challenges A student-commuter also voiced out his concerns over the country's transport system, an urgent problem that he said the President should address on his second year in office. Ashley Cruz, a college student who commutes going to school, cited the two main problems in the country’s transport system -- the phaseout of  traditional jeepneys and the daily traffic. “Hindi naman urgent ang pagbabago ng jeep dahil marami pa rin namang sumasakay sa nakagisnang jeep” (The jeepney mordernization program is not urgent since many still ride the traditional jeepneys), the 21-year-old college student told the Daily Tribune. Last March, transport sector groups held a week-long strike against the move to phase out traditional jeepneys. Cruz  also proposed that public utility vehicles, often blamed for traffic in major roads, should be given their own dedicated lane. In order for these problems to be solved, the government should conduct surveys among Filipino commuters and not only base their decisions on government agencies’ suggestions, said Cruz. “Dapat pakinggan nila ang kanilang pinag seserbisyuhan" (They should listen to the public they serve), she added.   The post Students to PBBM: Focus on inflation, education, public transport appeared first on Daily Tribune......»»

‘Prepare, coordinate, cooperate, save lives’ — Go tells frontline agencies

Senator Christopher ”Bong” Go, on Friday, 26 May, emphasized the importance of government preparedness and citizen awareness as Super Typhoon Betty entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility. With the potential for heavy rainfall and flooding, Go, during an ambush interview after attending the groundbreaking for the Super Health Center in Libertad, Misamis Oriental, called on the national government to coordinate with local government units to ensure the safety and well-being of affected communities.. “Nakikiusap po ako sa national government, sa DSWD (Department of Social Welfare and Development), preposition of goods kaagad at coordination with LGUs,” he added. Go stressed the significance of effective coordination with LGUs, saying, “Napakaimportante po ng coordination with LGUs dahil sila po ang nakakaalam kung saan dapat ilikas, saan 'yung safe na lugar, saan dapat 'yung evacuation center.” He also emphasized the need for the national government to be on top of the situation to guide citizens needing assistance. The senator also urged citizens not to be complacent and to adhere to government advisories. “Sa ngayon pa lang, huwag tayong magpakakumpiyansa. Habang papasok pa lang, may panahon po tayo na mag-prepare,” said Go. “Sumunod tayo sa paalala ng gobyerno. Sundin natin kung kailangan na lumikas. Umalis na sa mababang lugar, 'yung mga prone sa flooding dahil delikado 'yan,” he urged. The senator urged citizens to stay informed through reliable information sources and to heed the guidance of local officials and authorities.  Go also stressed the necessity of LGUs having ready relief supplies, search and rescue teams, and appropriate equipment, including personnel trained in emergency response. The typhoon’s passing may result in significant rainfall, potentially causing flash floods and landslides, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration. The projected path of the storm indicates that it will be approximately 250 kilometers away from Batanes and the Babuyan Islands within the weekend. During the interview, Go also took the opportunity to push for his advocacy for the establishment of a Department of Disaster Resilience.  “Yun po ang aking pinapangarap at hindi po ako titigil na isulong po ito. Sana po ay maging batas ito someday, itong Department of Disaster Resilience,” he said. Go emphasized the necessity of more proactive measures when dealing with natural calamities, reiterating his long-standing appeal for the establishment of the DDR through his proposed Senate Bill No. 188, a cabinet-level department dedicated to disaster response and mitigation efforts. “Hindi 'yung panay task force, task force ng pangalan ng typhoon. Eh ang problema n'yan kapag bagong administrasyon, mawawala na naman po ang task force. Kaya dapat Cabinet level para tuluy-tuloy po ang rehabilitasyon at makabalik sa normal ang apektadong mga komunidad,” concluded Go.

Bong Go: Continue health protocols even after global health emergency lifting

Despite the lifting of the global health emergency status of COVID-19 by the World Health Organization, Senator Christopher "Bong" Go has emphasized the need for Filipinos to continue observing basic health protocols, reminding them that although the status has been lifted, the threat of COVID-19 still exists. In an ambush interview after personally aiding residents in Batangas City on Monday, May 8, Go highlighted the need to be cautious and vigilant in the face of the ongoing pandemic, and to continue following health protocols such as wearing face masks when possible especially in public places, and more importantly, getting vaccinated. “Mas importante po sa akin ang buhay at kalusugan ng bawat Pilipino. Habang nandiyan po ang banta ng COVID, habang nandiyan ang sakit na COVID, ‘wag tayong maging kumpyansa. Marami pong paraan na maagapan natin ito (The life and health of every Filipino is important to me. As long the threat of COVID remains, let's not be complacent. There are many ways for us to stay safe),” he said. Go acknowledged that the lifting of the global health emergency status is a step toward returning to a more normal way of life. However, he stressed that the country cannot afford to let its guard down and become too complacent in the fight against COVID-19. “As Chair ng Committee on Health sa Senado, huwag pa rin tayong maging kumpyansa, tinanggal lang po ang pagiging world health emergency natin para unti-unti na tayo sigurong makabalik sa ating normal na pamumuhay (The global health emergency was lifted to allow us to slowly return to normal life), ” reiterated Go. On 5 May, the global emergency status for COVID-19 was lifted by the WHO, over three years since it was initially declared. However, WHO's emergencies director Michael Ryan said that "that battle is not over", adding, "We still have weaknesses and those weaknesses that we still have in our system will be exposed by this virus or another virus. And it needs to be fixed." The Department of Health responded favorably to the WHO's announcement, affirming that “this is an acknowledgment of our effective and collaborative COVID-19 response and concerted efforts to fully recover and re-open our economy.” Meanwhile, the senator also encouraged everyone to get vaccinated, and to get booster shots when they are eligible to better protect themselves from the virus. “Marami pong paraan na maagapan natin ito. Pabakuna kayo, kung qualified kayo sa booster, magpa-booster kayo. Nandidiyan lang po ang bakuna. Mas protektado po tayo kapag bakunado at ‘yan po ang tanging susi o solusyon para unti-unti na tayong makabalik sa ating normal na pamumuhay (Please get yourselves vaccinated; if you are qualified for a booster shot, get a booster shot. We're better protected if we're vaccinated, and it's the only solution so we can go back to our normal lives),” he stressed. “Hinihiling ko rin sa publiko na pangalagaan ang mga nakatatanda at may comorbidities. Kung hindi naman ito sagabal, magsuot pa rin tayo ng mask dahil hindi natin alam kung may dala tayong sakit pag-uwi sa pamamahay natin. Kung mahal natin ang ating mga magulang, mga lolo at lola, mas mabuti nang mas protektado tayo para mas maproteksyunan din sila dahil mas delikado kapag sila ang nagkasakit (I ask the public to protect the elderly and those with co-morbidities. Let's still wear face mask because we may bring diseases when we go home. If we love our parents and grandparents, it's better to keep ourselves protected so we can also protect them, because they're more prone to getting sick),” he also advised earlier. Go emphasized the sacrifices and learnings from the past three years during the pandemic must not be put to waste and efforts must continue to build a healthier and more resilient nation. “Halos tatlong taon na tayong nakikipaglaban sa COVID-19 pandemic. Huwag nating sayangin ang ating naging mga sakripisyo kontra rito. Patuloy tayong mag-ingat upang tuluyan na tayong makabangon mula sa krisis (We've been fighting the pandemic for nearly three years. Let's not waste our sacrifices. Let's continue to keep safe so we can finally overcome this crisis),” he said earlier. During the celebration of National Health Workers Day last 7 May, Go once again expressed his gratitude to all medical frontliners who have served and sacrificed in order to save lives during the pandemic. “Ang dapat nating pasalamatan ay ang ating mga frontliners. Hindi natin mararating ngayon ito lahat kung hindi dahil sa ating mga frontliners -- mga doktor, medtech, nurses, lahat down to hospital utility, salamat sa inyong sakripisyo lalo na nung panahon ng pandemya (We should all thank our frontliners. We wouldn't have reached this point without our frontliners -- the doctors, medtech, nurses, down to the hospital ulitility people, thank you for all your sacrifices especially during the height of the pandemic),” he expressed. #### The post Bong Go: Continue health protocols even after global health emergency lifting appeared first on Daily Tribune......»»
