Coronavirus infections are “going down”, with around 3,000 new cases reported Sunday, compared to the 6,000 daily hike in recent days, said Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana. He answered in the affirmative when asked if Metro Manila, home to 12 million people, can downgrade to a general community quarantine or GCQ that would reopen the economy.
"I think we are ready to go down," Lorenzana, chairman of the National Task Force Against COVID-19, told ANC. “We cannot continue with the MECQ kasi nga alam na natin kung nasaan iyong areas na may infection. Iyon ang tutukan natin so that the others can go to work,” he added.
(We already know the areas with infection. We will focus on those.)Metro Manila and 4 surrounding provinces were placed under MECQ or modified community quarantine until Aug. 18 after exhausted health workers appealed for a "timeout" as swamped hospitals turned patients away.
Authorities will identify villages or streets with COVID-19 outbreaks that need to be locked down, instead of shuttering entire cities, said Lorenzana."Hindi puwedeng lockdown na lang tayo nang lockdown dahil baka mas maraming mamatay sa gutom kaysa sa COVID kung walang trabaho ang mga tao," he said.
(We cannot keep going back under lockdowns because more people could die of hunger than of COVID if they are jobless.) Read more: ABS-CBN News »
Duterte threatens to stop Facebook in Philippines
'You cannot lay down a policy for my government,' President Rodrigo Duterte warns Facebook after it took down fake networks linked to the country's police and military
TVPatrol He is a soldier not a scientist or a doctor. oo kasi walang makukurakot ang mga buwaya....hahha Tama PO kyo sir.😔 Dapat Kasi Hindi tayo reklamo ng reklamo ,,, mahirap bang sumunod sa Batas? Kung marunong Lang sumunod sa Batas ,,, at hindi rally Lang Ng rally ,,, Hindi lalala ang covid ,,,, Hindi kayo ang pinapahirapan Ng GOBYERNO kayo ang nag papahirap sa GOBYERNO 🙄🙄🙄
Hintayin na lang po rin po kaya natin, na mamatay na tayong lahat? MAS MAHUHUSAY NA TAONG GOBYERNO NA ALAM ANG GAGAWIN ANG TUTULONG SA PAG-PUKSA SA PANDEMYA —- DI LOCKDOWN 🤨🤨🤨 Haha almost ALL HOSPITALS ARE IN FULL CAPACITY tapos looser quarantine measures! WTF!! YES.. because of the increasing unemployment rate... We are already at the brink of economic depression. GOD help us...🙏🙏🙏🇵🇭
NO! The science is clear, this virus is weak, and more Filipinos will die from starvation, heart attacks, strokes because of lockdowns than will die from this virus. More kids will die from dengue fever/rabies/riding bikes than will die from this virus. President Duterte is right. Kahit naka lockdown na ngayon wala naman nagbago, dami paring positive. mas maganda ituloy nalang ang pamu2hay ng mga tao
And his medical expertise is what again...? Because he knows so much about pandemics or handling public health crises And because the govt studied/ researched the pandemic’s impact, trajectory, curve? None of the above. Statements need to be backed up by data — indicators that are to be used in imposing stricter/looser quarantine measures. This is what health data tells you. Balance this w/ other factors our nation’s leaders need to consider in their decisions then you make statements on it.
Tangina tapos ano? Mamumulubi din yung mga tao kapag nagkacovid sila? Tangina niyo. Gusto niyo palang magtrabaho na yung mga tao pero hindi niyo naman inayos trabaho niyo. Ginagawa niyong mga sacrificial lamb yung mga tao para sa kita niyo. Either way we'll die if there's no strategy how to live the new normal. The government should provide plans and solutions to lead the country to recovery.
Never agree to a no plan. If government can't take care all of us then we must take care of ourselve the best way we can no matter how hard and impossible it may be. Goodluck to all of us and always keep safe mga kababayan. Ano po ba nagawa ng govt sa request na 2 wks? Parang Wala naman Get opinion po muna sir ng mga doctors..: eto na naman kayo tsk tsk tsk
Ah, wala na kasing pumapasok sa kaban kaya wala na din maibulsa. Paki sabi yan s government mo n need n nila ng tamang planu wag yung kung anu anu nlng ang inaa2pag... Saan k nakakita n sbihin n pati s loob ng bahay need ng social distances. Oplan: Hintay Bakuna, pondo ibulsa. Marami na ang nawalan ng trabaho ng dahil sa putang inang lockdown na yan! Pag ipinagpatuloy ang lockdown na yan lalong dadami ang susuportahan ng gobyerno,,kasama na ang mga batugan at tamad na mga filipino...
Tama, we have to accept that covid19 is part of our daily lives. Lockdown kayo ng lockdown pero wala naman kayong plans para maflatten ang curve. Wala talagang sense. puro lockdown lang po ksi alam ng government, ano po ginawa ng LGU at DOH sa 2 weeks na lockdown? ginutom lang ang mga tao dhil di sila makawork...
MGA GUSTO MAG ECQ YUNG MGA WALANG TRABAHO AT NASA BAHAY LANG MGA MAGULANG NILA Without political inhibition, i think its about time we might consider the proposal of VP Robredo to tackle the covid pandemic. I Agree with u sir pero sana ung 15 days ginawa na lang Super Duper Hard LockDown Ngayon nyo pa lng naisip yan? Anong ginawa nyo ng march to june?
teddyboylocsin Paki ayos na din po ang data ng Covid-19 cases. Trueee! Hopeless case. Oh cmon. 'wag na tayong maglokohan dito. You're not really concerned with people's welfare. Concern kayo kasi yung mga oligarchs na nakapaligid san'yo ay umaaray na. dapat kc simula pa lang naging alerto ang gobyerno di dapat lumala yan imagine nagfucos sila sa franchise ng abs kesa sa covid19 ang kayabangan ng gobyerno tapos ngayon sabihin niyo mamatay as gutom kong lockdown ng lockdown hello kong naguide lang ng gobyerno ang bansa di lumala
OustDu𓆉 We will not have an economy if everybody is sick and health system collapses. E kaso nga wala nga kayong konkretong plano. Yung mga sundalo at pulis dumarami na din ang nahahawahaan Kung regular ba ang testing sa lahat ng frontliners e mas maganda sana para napapangalagaan kahit kawani ng gobyerno. Kung kelan lang magka-symptoms e saka lang itetest.
Ok. But no concrete short and long term plans for the health and economic sector. Kaya ba ng healthsystem natin eto? Daming tanong para sa health and economic aspect natin pero yan ba ang tamang sagot? Ah yes, a medical expert The fucking lock down was never necessary since the govt keeps allowing Chinese people to get in the country! Besides, the govt has no other plan to deal with ChinaVirus other than the militarized lock down! We had been on lock down since March 15 and it created more chaos!
yung participation na nga lng sa joint maritime exercise ang isa mga pinagkakabalahan nyo, kaso pinagbawalan pa kayo ng tatay nyo, kaya eto daming time magbigay ng komento about covid19 situation ng bansa.. sir ipaubaya nyo na yan sa mga health expert. di pwedeng sabi sabi lng. hindi ba dahil sa WALANG as in WALANG maliwanag na programa si duterte, IATF at ang gobyerno? ulol lang dndphl DOHgovph senatePH HouseofRepsPH
Lorenzana sabihin mo, 'Salamat, Shopee' Finally someone woke up . People with money they could survive if we lock down for the rest of there lives . This people are poor to the poorest , from food to there mouth . Barely survive even before open the economy. Phil has the longest lockdown omg Lorenzana is Defense that’s not 4 him 2 tell. What does Duque have to say?It’s about time the SOH answers the nation in the daily DOH presser.Not Vergere.The DOH sec usec/asec/director should also do d rounds of d majorCovid hospitals & see d situation for themselves
Wala na kayo makurakot Salamat dok 🙀 Sana naisip nyo to months ago before kayo nagimpose ng pagkahabahabang lockdown. Personally okay naman ang lockdown provided may kapartner na iba pang medical at economic plans. Kaso wala eh, tamang lockdown lang. Bahala na yung mga pilipinong mahirapan.😶 No one wants to be placed on lockdown but the situation calls for it. We can still regain lost economy but we cannot bring back lives that we have lost. We also have to save our frontliners! And you're not the right person to say what needs to be done!
That’s right! Hindi pwede lockdown ng lockdown.Kaya we need a NEW STRATEGY Mr. Lorenzana. Waiting for vaccine is not a strategy.Hiring more frontliners is not a strategy. Wearing face mask is not a strategy. It’s been 5 months and IATF failed to adopt in the situation. It’s TIME Wa ka naulaw? Yan na naman tayo eh.
DZMMTeleRadyo If ecq or any Q means shuttering people in their homes without any plan and or course of action ... what’s the point. It is just delaying the inevitable. Ano ang basis niya? After more than 3 thousand new cases in 1 day? During the lockdown, may ginawa ba sila para sabihin nilang pwede na magbukas ulit? Itong inutil na gobyerno, hindi Pilipino kasi has priority nyo!
Why do you keep using hunger as an excuse? It's the government's job to feed those who cannot fend for themselves. That's what the government is for. You borrowed billions of dollars but saan napunta? DZMMTeleRadyo I agree with him mabuti ito isa Tutu ni D30 si Sec Delfin Lorenzana myidea, hoping hinde magalit ang kanya boss na evil D30 ng sinabi niya need to stop to lockdown buong Manila,need some ppl a job kasi ang dami magugutum mga tao sa Manila,He is right,but ito si D30 gago wala idea
Wait n lng po nating maging SEA hotspot po ang Pilipinas sa covid19 case BAKET PALA ANG MGA NAGSASALITA OURO MILITARY DND AT DILG..DI BA DAPAT ANG MAGSALITA DOH AT FINANCE OR DTI...SANA MANAHIMIK NALANG ITONG DND AT DILG..HAISSST.. May I suggest before releasing a statement, please check the REAL situation with our frontliners. With or without lockdown, we have the same problem, it becomes worst.
WHO MADE EVERYTHING THIS WAY IN THE FIRST PLACE? Remember when we've eased up to ECQ without even having a decent testing capacity? HEALTHCARE SYSTEM FIRST, the economy will follow. Well, by 'go down' do you mean six feet under? HINDI BA HABANG MATAAS ANG POSITIVITY RATE NATIN WALA PA RIN MANGYAYARI SA ECONOMY...KAYA NGA DAPAT MA FLATTEN PARA MAKAGALAW NG MAAYOS ANG EKONOMIYA NATIN.
Kulang talaga IQ ng mga appointees ni Dutae noh? Sabi ni DrTonyLeachon kung maaari, 1 month gawin ang MECQ. Tapos itong bobong kawani na ito, walang basehan kung magrekomenda ng ikasasama ng nakararami. Hello yourphilarmy TeamAFP, paki call out ang bobo nyong alumnus! Bat ba mga ret. soldier/police nagsasalita tungkol dyan.. diba dapat mga doktor or yung mga qualified magsabi kung puede na..
DZMMTeleRadyo Basis, please, Mr. Secretary? Higpit, luwag, higpit, luwag... ganyan talaga pag walang plano or strategy at naghihintay nalang dumating ang vaccine. Honestly, it is not ready. Weight is more on economy, wala na tayong pera to sustain. Corruption is still our number 1 enemy, we would have more resources to address this crisis at the onset.
Sino ba may gusto na lagi na lang lockdown at laging full capacity ang mga ospital? WALA. If we really want to lower the cases then massive testing and isolation needs to be done. Isolating the infected is important so we can slow down and fully stop the transmission of the virus Katwiran mo, bulok! Yes as long identified yung areas na ma-covid, dun nalang tlaaga mag concentrate.
Tapos babawiin na namn hay naku , yung strategy nyo baguhin nyo na . Juice ko pong pineapple 🤦🏻♀️ Proof? DZMMTeleRadyo Hahaha! Lockdown lng kasi ng lockdown, hindi mawawala yan kung yun lng ginagawa natin. Mas maraming magkakasakit kapag bumigay ang mga health care workers natin. Pwede naman kasi may quarantine pass na lang para hindi nagkalat tao sa labas eh at hindi sabay sabay ang punta sa mga supermarket.
TVPatrol Patayin nyo sa gutom then idagdag nyo sa data sa kaso ng COVID namatay sila! Wla k nmn alam pwede b! Manahimik n lng wag nang pabibo! uhm, DND on a health issue, talking about economic impact. Oh yes. Sino bang may gusto ng puro lockdown? Hindi tlga pwedeng maglockdown na lang palagi... Lalo na kung walang concrete plans.
I also like to see the economy open up. However, the secretary’s pronouncement is premature. Still 8 days to go. Don’t think a trend was established within just past 7 days. This also show his bias. Decision based on data and science is simply lip service. Tama tutal ung mga nag rally sa abs CBN at UP Kya cguro dumami Kya rally p kyo
DZMMTeleRadyo Ser utak pls ser wala talagang mangyayari kung tago lang tayo ng tago at wala pa ring konkretong plano kayong mga nasa gobyerno! 🙄 Ready nga ba? Tanga lang!
