@PiaGarciaHere Gen. Eleazar: Kung ikukumpara, talagang malaking improvement
Gen. Eleazar: Ako'y naniniwala na ito ay dahil sa patuloy na suporta ng pamahalaan sa ating kapulisan (1/2)
Gen. Eleazar: Una, pagdodoble ng sweldo; pangalawa, mga kagamitan na binibigay sa atin; pangatlo, yung ating kampanya against illegal drugs pati na rin yung paigting na pagpapatupad ng mga ordinansa at batas para sa anti-criminality efforts (2/2)

Gen. Eleazar: Hinihintay na lang natin yung resulta ng investigation para sa pagsampa ng karampatang kaso against sa suspect na pulis (2/2)

Gen. Eleazar on the issue of actor Jake Cuenca: Nakapagfile na po tayo ng kaso... At iniimbestigahan na rin 'yan. (1/2)
Gen. Eleazar: Iniimbestigahan rin ang mga pulis dahil may nakitang lapses dun sa pagbabaril ng gulong sa paghabol sa kanya na nagresulta sa aksidente na may tinamaan (2/2)

Gen. Eleazar: Kung sakaling magbago ang alert level sa Metro Manila...inaasahan natin na mas marami tayong kababayan na pupunta sa permitted industries (1/2)
Gen. Eleazar: At doon pupunta ang mga pulis in coordination doon sa mga management and owners...para tiyakin na susunod pa rin sila sa minimum health standard (2/2)
Gen. Eleazar says under alert level 3, prohibitions will loosen but police will continue to enforce prohibitions

Zamboanga City COVID-19 Task Force spokesperson Atty. Kenneth Beldua: As of now, we have recorded a total of 17,882 confirmed cases. Out of this, 2,551 active cases
Beldua says there is a shortage of oxygen supply as well as ICU and COVID beds in hospitals.
Beldua says they are looking into oxygen suppliers, and to address the congestion in hospitals, the city government will convert some isolation facilities to become step-down and step-up facilities where patients who have mild to moderate symptoms will be brought.
Beldua: We are preparing some 900 beds in schools from DepEd that will be converted to isolation facilities
Beldua says 202,582 people in their area have received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, which is 29% of the target population. There are 146,749 people, or 21% of the target population, that have been fully vaccinated.
