No conditions in China’s move to prioritize PH as vaccine recipient — Sta. Romana

China has not imposed any condition when it included the Philippines as among the priority nations to gain access to its potential coronavirus vaccine, according to a Filipino diplomat. Amb. Jose Santiago Sta. Romana Philippine Ambassador to China Jose Santiago Sta. Romana said China instead reminded the country to prepare its cold storage facilities amid the highly anticipated breakthrough in vaccine development. China will hopefully announce its mass production of the coronavirus vaccine before the end of the year or early next year, Sta. Romana said during an online Palace press briefing. “Hopefully, mass production and distribution will happen in the near future, as early as November and December in terms of production. And it will depend on our capability to receive the vaccines in terms of our facilities, in terms of distribution,” he said.  “The prospects are bright in terms of a breakthrough in vaccine,” he added. Sta. Romana made clear that the cold storage facilities for the potential COVID-19 vaccines are not conditions set by China but simply a reminder to ensure effective distribution of the vaccine.  “It’s just a reminder that if you get the vaccine and you don’t have cold chain storage, then it’s useless so you have to prepare,” he said, citing information from Chinese drug companies.  He said even if the Philippines is in the “priority list,” the distribution of the vaccine will be a challenge. He said the vaccines must be stored in “freezing conditions” to keep its efficacy.  “If exposed to tropical weather or to normal weather conditions, the vaccine could lose its effectiveness,” he said.So far, Sta. Romana said the vaccines being developed by Chinese pharmaceutical firms have entered phase 3 of the clinical trials. One of the potential vaccines have been approved for emergency use for health workers and other government frontliners. “The Chinese will make an announcement in the near future and then they’ll start their mass production. And once there is the mass production, then I think there will be distribution. Hopefully, before the end of the year; but surely by the first quarter of next year,” he said.  Asked if China has imposed any condition on the Philippines in exchange for the vaccine supply, Sta. Romana said: “No, not at all. Actually, we’re the ones, our condition is that it should pass our local requirements.” When asked if Beijing has pledged the amount of vaccines and if these will be given to Manila for free, Sta. Romana said the matter would entail more discussion. “I cannot give you a definitive answer right now but definitely in terms of number, you know, how they will do it kasi it depends on the—they’re talking of hundreds of millions in terms of production dito sa China. So, the question is iyong distribution and deployment,” he said. “They’re preparing their manufacturing facilities for the mass production of vaccines the moment approval is announced,” he added. Budget Secretary Wendel Avisado has assured that the government has funds that will be needed for the establishment of the cold storage facilities for the coronavirus vaccines. “Surely, as the sun rises in the east, there will be funds for that because the President will never allow that we will run short of the requirements to make sure that we have the storage facilities for all of these vaccines,” he said in the same online press conference. Last week, President Duterte expressed confidence about the safety of the vaccines being developed by China, citing the Asian neighbor is a modern country. He said the government has funds for the vaccine purchase, adding he was just waiting for China or Russia to contact him. “I’d be glad to open up my sleeves because I am confident with their vaccine,” he added......»»

Jaja Santiago re-signs with Ageo Medics

Jaja Santiago has re-signed as an import for the Saitama Ageo Medics in the Japan V. Premier League. The versatile 6-foot-5 player announced the development late Friday through her Philippine Superliga club Chery Tiggo’s Instagram account.         View this post on Instagram                   Yes!

We're proud to say that Our very own Middle Blocker @alyjasantiago3 is going back to Japan and will play once again for Ageo Medics for the 3rd time! ???????? #cherytiggocrossovers #cheryautophilippines A post shared by cherytiggocrossoversph (@cherytiggocrossoversph) on Aug 21, 2020 at 6:02am PDT Santiago, who is effective in both middle and wing positions, will be playing with the Ageo Medics for the third straight year and is set to return to Japan as the club begins its preparation for the 2020-2021 season scheduled to begin in October. The Filipina standout helped the Ageo Medics cop the bronze medal last season for the club’s historic podium finish. The Ageo Medics finished seventh in 2018 during Santiago’s rookie season with the Japanese club. Santiago returned to the country last February shortly after the conclusion of the Japanese league’s season to see action in the PSL Grand Prix. Unfortunately, the import-laden conference was scrapped due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The National University product, who skipped last year’s national team stint in the 30th Southeast Asian Games due to conflict of schedule, promised to return to PSL action next year.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Remember KYK’s kind words to Pinoy volleyball fans?

Filipino volleyball fans are the best in the world. They are extremely passionate, warm and very friendly.      Ask any foreign player who has played in the country about the local fans and the answer will be the same: it’s quite an experience. Even Korean volleyball star Kim Yeon-Koung experienced firsthand the one of a kind love of Pinoy fans for the sport. Three years ago KYK, who is one of the highest-paid and most popular volleyball stars in the world, came to the country to represent South Korea in the 19th AVC Asian Senior Women's Volleyball Championship. Fourteen teams participated in the competition held at the Alonte Sports Arena in Binan, Laguna and at the Muntinlupa Sports Center. South Korea played in both venues and Pinoy fans would fill the arena to watch and cheer for the Koreans. Even KYK was surprised for the amount of love she and her teammates received from the crowd. “I didn’t expect that there’s much people supporting me here in the Philippines. When I came here I’m really surprised that a lot of people are supporting me and they know me,” she said then. The Korean superstar even went as far as saying that the Filipino fans made her feel like playing on home soil. “Thank you so much to the Filipino fans, when I play here (it feels) like I’m playing at home. It was great to play here,” she said. KYK's most memorable experience was when she received a bouquet of flowers from a four-year-old boy after Korea’s bronze medal win. But aside from the warmth of the supporters, the Philippine national team in that tournament earned the respect of KYK and Koreans. Although the Jaja Santiago and Alyssa Valdez-led Filipinas bowed down to the powerhouse opponents in straight sets in the quarterfinals classification round, the gritty host squad forced Korea to field KYK throughout the whole match for the first-time in the tournament. KYK also admired the improvement of the PHI squad compared to their match in the 2015 edition. KYK sat out in the said encounter in China. Overall, KYK truly enjoyed her stay in the country. All thanks to the Filipino fans.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Coach Franz Pumaren feeling bittersweet after losing coach Jack Santiago to UE

For the first time in the UAAP, Franz Pumaren will not have Jack Santiago by his side. Even more, coach Franz will actually see coach Jack on the opposite bench as the former remains the head coach of Adamson University while the latter is the new mentor for University of the East. Don't think for once, though, that there is ill will between the comrades-turned-competitors. "Well, first of all, I'm so happy for Jack," coach Franz told fellow coaches Charles Tiu, Paolo Layug, and Anton Altramirano on Coaches Unfiltered, talking about his longtime lieutenant who is now getting his first shot at calling the shots in the big leagues. He then continued, "In fact, matagal nang may mga offers yan to be a head coach. Sabi ko nga sa kanya, I think it's about time for you to assume that responsibility." From De La Salle University to Adamson, Santiago had been Pumaren's most trusted assistant - and the former has actually been the latter's top deputy in recent history. That is exactly why coach Franz has no doubt that coach Jack is more than qualified to guide the Red Warriors out of the bottom of the standings. As he put it, "At least, all the years he was under me, whatever he learned, he can apply it as head coach." At the same time, though, San Marcelino has just lost a big piece in its puzzle. "Malaking factor ang pagkawala sa akin ni coach Jack dahil mabigat yan e. 220 lbs. yan e kaya talagang malaking factor yan sa amin," Pumaren said through chuckles. Turning serious, though, he continued, "Of course, si Jack, he knows me very well. I just tell him what to do and he can tell already what I don't like that's happening in practice, in a particular play." What that it mind, coach Franz and coach Jack's first meeting as opponents will be, without a doubt, a must-see matchup. Even Adamson's brilliant tactician said so. "I'm looking forward to playing against him. Siyempre, sayang nga na na-postpone," he said. He then continued, "Alam kong excited na excited si Jack. We hope the best for him." --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
