Family kept Trina Guytingco going during COVID-19 scare

First, the bad news. Last Wednesday, Trina Guytingco's COVID-19 test from two weeks ago came back positive. The Ateneo de Manila University playmaker said so herself in the latest episode of So She Did. "About three weeks ago, I attended a basketball (camp) in Vegas. I spent three days with a whole bunch of women, just playing basketball," she shared. She then continued, "A couple of days later, I started feeling sick. Then I received news that one of my teammates (from the camp) tested positive." Not long after, Guytingco was feeling the effects of the virus herself. "I started to have fever, a really bad headache, a sore throat, loss of appetite, and just a lot of body aches," she said. The 22-year-old never thought she was going to be at the wrong end of the continuing COVID-19 crisis. After all, she never failed to look out for their health. "Prior to that, I was very cautious with everything I was doing - wearing a mask, washing my hands, practicing social distancing," she said. Even so, she was far from safe and secure for when lady luck didn't smile upon her. Guytingco does not know for sure when, where, and how exactly she contracted COVID-19. What's certain is that after the basketball camp, she was not well and good. As she put it, "For me, it felt like I worked out the whole day even if I was literally in bed the whole day. I was exhausted and my body was just hurting and aching everywhere." Even worse, the 5-foot-7 guard's mind was in the same state as the body. "It was just very nerve-racking. I didn't know what was about to happen so it just messes with your head," she said. She then continued, "It was a very rough week for me. There were days when you think you're going to be fine, but there were days you think why did this happen to me?" Now, the good news. Guytingco is with her family in their home in Pleasant Hill, California. And of course, they are doing their best to make her feel better - just as she's doing her best not to make them feel worse. "Even before the test results, I treated myself like I was positive and my family treated me like I was positive. I was just in my room for a whole two weeks," she said. While she was waging war with the virus, her family wore masks and disinfected anywhere and everywhere she was - even inside their home. Her mom was also on top of things - making sure she took medicine and vitamins as well as ginger tea with cinnamon for her sore throat. And the even better news? Trina Guytingco is doing much, much better now. "I've been feeling amazing," she said, while also sharing that her latest rapid test result came last Thursday and it was negative. Still, she says she will keep staying safe. "We still don't know how much (worse) this virus can get. I don't know when I'm 'safe' already so we're just hoping I keep getting better," she said. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PH reports milestone 103,185 mark in COVID-19 cases

The COVID-19 health crisis in the country hit a milestone on Sunday, August 2, as more than 100,000 people were confirmed to have been infected by the deadly disease since the first case was detected last January. The Department of Health (DOH) reported 5,032 new infections, raising the total number of cases to 103,185. The country’s new cases hit fresh highs  in terms of daily reported infections for four straight days already—beating the 4,963 cases recorded on Saturday, August 1.  The active cases stood at 35,569, the DOH said.  The number of recoveries is now at 65,557 with 301 new patients who have recuperated. The death toll jumped to 2,059 as 20 more patients succumbed to the respiratory illness.  This scenario was way ahead of the projection of experts from the University of the Philippines (UP) last July 7— saying that the country could surpass 100,000 cases by the end of August. It can be noted that the Philippines only had a total of 38,511 confirmed cases on July 1. The daily tallies since then ranged between 290 to 5,000 cases. The Philippines ranked 26th with the most number of cases worldwide, based on the World Health Organization’s (WHO) COVID-19 dashboard.Among the 10 members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), the Philippines placed second in terms of case total.  As of Saturday, August 1, the Philippines has tested a total of  1,433,544 people or 1.35 percent of its 106 million population. The total number of tests conducted is at 1,534,319. Moreover, there are 97 COVID-19 licensed laboratories with an overall daily testing capacity of around 28,000. Majority of the infections in the country are found in the National Capital Region (NCR), which is the epicenter of COVID-19 in the country. To date, the number of cases in NCR reached 53,135 with active cases at 17,613, based on the DOH COVID-19 tracker.  Early in July, WHO Country Representative to the Philippines Dr. Rabindra Abeyasinghe underscored the importance of releasing the test result in a fast manner with an ideal turnaround time of  “less than 24 hours,” as well as to strengthen the contact tracing initiatives. He then also expressed concern over the spike of COVID-19 cases being detected outside the NCR, describing it as a “worrying phenomena.” DOH Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire said that they are already expecting that the number of cases will shoot up due to the easing of quarantine restrictions. Authorities continuously urged the public to remain vigilant and follow the precautionary measures at all times.  The government relaxed quarantine restrictions in many areas of the country in June, while some reverted or remained under strict measures. The NCR was downgraded to general community quarantine (GCQ) starting June 1 from the much stricter lockdown of modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ). At that time, experts from UP said that it  “might be premature to relax the MECQ to GCQ” as the rate of transmission in NCR remains high. Several medical associations on Saturday called on the government to place NCR under the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) as healthcare workers are already exhausted and in order to slow down the increase of infections......»»

Solons to gov’t: Heed the plea of medical workers

Lawmakers expressed all-out support on Sunday (August 2) to the appeal made by Philippine College of Physicians and the Philippine Medical Associationto shift Mega Manila back to a 15-day enhanced community quarantine (ECQ), even as they sought a change in leadership in the Department of Health (DOH) and other agencies handling the country’s response against COVID-19. (JANSEN ROMERO / FILE PHOTO / MANILA BULLETIN) Albay 1st District Rep. Edcel Lagman, Anakalusugan partylist Rep. Michael Defensor, Bayan Muna partylist Rep.  Carlos Isagani Zarate, and Quezon City  2nd District Rep. Precious Hipolito Castelo called on the government to heed the plea of the medical experts and frontliners for more stringent health protocols in critical areas. “While both the health and economic crisis wrought by  the still ravaging COVID-19 pandemic must be both effectively addressed, the relief and recovery of the people’s health must be prioritized. Lives lost are forfeited forever but businesses lost can be redeemed,” Lagman said in a statement.“We must learn from the bitter lesson experienced by other countries like Japan which prematurely reopened economic, leisure and domestic travel activities only to be besieged later by a resurgence of the viral contagion,” he stressed.  Defensor, chairperson of the House Committee on Public Accounts, said, “If our leading doctors are prescribing it, then as good patients, we are all for Mega Manila’s brief return to an ECQ.” “Our sense is, our public health system is on the verge of collapse, and the momentary return to an ECQ will buy everybody more time to gird for a longer battle against the coronavirus disease,” he said. He said once the government gives in to the appeal, the COVID-19 National Task Force should take that opportunity to fix the lack of hospital staff due to doctors, nurses and other personnel getting infected and still recovering, or undergoing routine seclusion after possible exposure; expand the bed capacities of makeshift hospitals and quarantine facilities; and improve case-finding and the isolation of suspected cases. Defensor said the government should also step up contact-tracing and quarantining; upgrade public transportation options and safety; strengthen workplace protection; build up enforcement of and public compliance with self-protective measures such as the wearing of face masks and face shields, handwashing as well as social and physical distancing; and increase financial and livelihood support to distressed households. Zarate said they are one with our frontliners in demanding a reprieve from the overwhelming cases of COVID-19, particularly in the National Capital Region. “Reverting back to ECQ or whatever level of lockdown is useless or will be for naught if the primary recommendation of frontliners like free mass testing, pro-active contact tracing, isolation and treatment will not be seriously implemented by the government,” he said in a statement. For her part, Castelo said, “Let us listen to them. They are the ones on the frontline. Indeed, after five months of fighting this pandemic, they are exhausted physically, emotionally and mentally.” She laments that several doctors and nurses have died and many others have fallen sick while battling COVID-19. “Our medical workers are asking for a short time to recuperate. Let us give it to them,” she said. In a radio interview, Surigao del Norte 2nd district Rep. Robert Ace Barbers said the government should strike a balance between the economy and health of the Filipinos, but it should be tilted somehow, in favor of health amid the appeal made by physicians to shift Mega Manila back to a 15-day ECQ. He asked the DOH to come up with “a system, a policy, or even perhaps a strategy” to reinforce the country’s health system by augmenting the medical force.  In a separate statement, Assistant Minority Leader and ACT Teachers Representative France Castro said the Inter Agency Task Force for COVID-19 should be headed by medical experts instead of generals who have done nothing but to impose military solutions to combat a public health crisis.  “Our frontliners are already pleading to the Duterte administration to implement a comprehensive medical plan to address the COVID-19 pandemic in the country. The government needs to listen and take concrete actions with the demands of our healthcare workers,” she said.   “It is high time that medical experts lead in the fight against COVID-19 instead of military generals. Medical experts who will not twist data and try to sanitize the numbers. We need medical experts who use science and not allow an entire population to be used as guinea pigs in a failed response and inadequate policies for public health safety.”.....»»
