Audit reports are prepared and released like clockwork every year. EVERY YEAR, regardless of who's sitting in either offices. Bakit biglang considered premature ang report nang magtanong ang COA bakit hindi nagamit or hindi nagamit nang maayos ang P67 bilyon ng DOH? #BudgetWatch
Parang investigative report 'yang audit report. May deadline. When you've been given enough time to dispute or comment on the findings pero di kayo sumagot, itatakbo ang istorya. May pasabi lang na kung finally ay sasagot kayo, ia-update ang istorya. #BudgetWatch
Gentlemen, precisely because we're in extraordinary times, in a time of emergency, and we need urgency, kaya nagtanong ang COA:

Bakit hindi ninyo ginamit o inilabas ang bilyon-bilyong pisong nakalaan na panserbisyo sa mga nagkakasakit at namamatay na kababayan? #BudgetWatch

While a series of typhoons has affected many regions in Luzon, #COVID19PH continues to spread across the country, with numbers in Mindanao rising. Of the regions with active cases, Davao Region now has the 4th highest numbers with 2.6K active cases.…
Outside of Metro Manila and CALABARZON, there are now 9 cities with more than 2,000 confirmed cases: Baguio, Bacolod, Iloilo, Davao City, Zamboanga City, Cagayan de Oro, and 3 cities in Metro Cebu (Cebu City, Mandaue, Lapu-Lapu)
One of the worst parts of the pandemic is still the backlogs and delays. It now takes an average of 18.2 days for cases to be confirmed from onset of symptoms. Largest component of delay is confirmation after test results are released. DOH processing getting worse by the day.

There are now 24 cities in the Philippines with more than 1,000 confirmed cases. This includes all cities in Metro Manila, 3 cities in Metro Cebu (Cebu, Lapu-Lapu, Mandaue), 3 cities in Laguna (Santa Rosa, Calamba, Biñan), Antipolo, and Davao City #COVID19PH
There are also 27 cities or municipalities where both ICUs and ventilators are highly utilised. Among these, 8 are in Metro Manila, 4 in Laguna, 3 in Cavite, and 2 each in Bulacan and Pangasinan. It's clear that the epicentre is not just Metro Manila, but the entire Mega Manila.
All epidemiological trends in the Philippines have bad news. Let's start with individuals testing positive. For the past week, there are at least 3K individuals testing positive every day. The last time Philippines had less than 1K positive test results was 49 days ago (24/June).

Listening to the medical doctors' plea for a "time out" (2 week ECQ) for our public health system to keep up w/ the #COVID19PH's rising cases. You could just hear the helplessness, hence the united call for "collaboration" & a strategic comprehensive plan. Wala kasing plano.
"Hindi puwedeng pagalingan tayo. Hindi puwedeng naka-rely lang sa LGU. Kailangan may coordinated plan headed by the national government.... Please pakinggan niyo po kami. Kami po ang humaharap sa mga pasyente. Pag kami po ay bumigay na, dyan po may malaking problema."
This desperation fills me with dread. Dyusko. At papasok pa ako sa opisina sa buong buwan ng Agosto.

#TodayinHistory in 1820, Valerio Malabanan, secular priest & educator, is born in #Lipa, #Batangas. His life devoted to teaching proved consequential for having had many of his students become leading Filipino intellectuals in the late 19th century #PH. (THREAD) #kasaysayan Image
Growing up in the early 19th century #Batangas, #PH Malabanan studied in Lipa, trained in segunda enseñanza & philosophy at @LetranOfficial, mastered Spanish language & Latin grammar, and studied Theology in @UST1611official.
Malabanan, while serving as priest & teacher, became enamored in history & mathematics. He was known to have translated many Spanish-authored works in Tagalog. His teaching style at the time was very advanced: he never employed corporal punishment on his students.

Sharing this image from UP GDE using the data from 2018 regarding the hospital capacity and population per area are included, hoping that in the future or coming years we may provide an accessible and humane healthcare for all (RA11223). Hi to @YAHRPH who are pushing for the HCWs
Even so, with the aim of seeing the current situation and plight of other Filipinos on accessing healthcare. We should sought on adding more healthcare facilities across the archipelago, especially in Mindanao and Visayas wherein most of those areas don't have much HCWs as well.
Another thing to think of for the few numbers of HCWs in the countryis that we have the DTTB program and innovations such as the RxBox and the use of Telemedecine that aims to mitigate the dwindling practitioners in the country who are also hoping to make a better living.

Sunday thread: 1. The USA, etc. hoovering up reagents and testing kit, not to mention PPE, output leaving PH unable to order/import in volume to expand (targeted) testing, both the kind to determine if someone currently infect, and for antibody presence to show past infection.
2. Even setting aside possibility still debate within gov't to what extent to expand testing, it means testing won't be as extensive as officially OKd. Means true scope/scale will still be unknown to policy makers/public. We know per media ICU capacity NCR about to be reached.
3. Anecdotally, three imp't things: a. In places (often below media radar), lockdown/quarantine isn't really practiced, because to even try to do so would result in public revolt. So it's laissez-faire. Means #COVID19PH could be rampant but anyway no data. b. People jittery...

Since Philippine General Hospital started operating as a #COVID19PH national referral center last month, I’ve been tasked to monitor and allocate PPEs for the entire hospital. Here’s a thread on how we rationalize PPE use without compromising safety: (1/7)
Early on, our Infection Control Unit established clear guidelines that say who requires what level of protection at which location. We have infographics all over PGH for this, and areas in the hospital are marked red, orange, or green zones. (2/7)
What is adequate PPE? Having seen photos worldwide, I’d say it varies depending on hospital and available resources. The L image shows PGH PPE recommendation in high risk areas, and the R image, the algorithm formulated by @psmidorg 👉🏼… (3/7)

Additional thoughts on the Two Philippines' in the era of #Covid19PH during #LuzonLockdown: in one of my favorite phrases from the late Leon Ma. Guerrero, "today began yesterday." If the government response from the start was focused on the military/police and not on health...
...this was because of a long-standing trend in our society dating to Edsa Dos, where middle and upper class pressure to overthrow the government divorced the poor majority from the middle and upper, a democratic unity fostered by the anti-Marcos and post-EDSA coup eras. When...
"Edsa Tres" happened, the sight/sounds/experience of urban insurrection frightened the middle and upper rightwards, creating a fracture that in turn opened (or more accurately, accelerated) the restoration of the Marcoses for one, and the removal of the taboo vs. strongmen...

Instances during the fight vs. #COVID19PH and #LuzonLockdown when public opinion, even expressed virtually, produced quick results from officials, a thread. This is a remarkable trend where officials who'd gamed social media have found their old swarming techniques useless.
Cases where public opinion produced results:

1. Cancelation of DOT scheme to stimulate tourism during #COVID19PH crisis by having big mall sales.
2. Administration outrage over Mayor Sotto finding local solutions led to other mayors adopting his solutions and administration toning down its hostility.

I think many parents or family groups are quietly having very sober conversations as three things sink in: 1. lockdown may last longer than announced, and when life resumes there’s threat of 2nd #COVID19PH wave; 2. Many businesses are going to fail; bills only postponed: and...
...with extended lockdown and delayed recovery, supply chain’s broken down and shortages are going to be more widespread while economic recovery is clearly not in government planners’ priority list. The #LuzonLockdown is just the pause before the real storm and no one in charge.
So this leaves 3. It’s every family for itself with no time to have prepared, with no real support from the state, and the national leadership in disgrace and the world economy facing challenges that will imperil our traditional national umbilical cord to Filipinos abroad.
