Published 11:27 PM, March 25, 2020 Updated 11:27 PM, March 25, 2020 'BE FLEXIBLE'. Senator Panfilo Lacson urges DOH and FDA to be more flexible. Photo by Angie de Silva/Rappler MANILA, Philippines – Senator Panfilo Lacson on Wednesday, March 25, said that the Department of Health and the Food and Drugs Administration must act with urgency to flatten the coronavirus curve in the country. "As of last Monday, [March 23], when we were deliberating on the just-signed Bayanihan To Heal As One Act, we tested only 1,500 Filipinos, more or less. With a population of 107 million, the worst is yet to come unless DOH and FDA act with urgency," Lacson said in a statement on Wednesday. Lacson said that the lockdown is"obviously working" but that alone is not enough, citing the case of South Korea that had conducted mass testing to slow down the spread of the virus. Lacson suggested that what the government lacks is"more flexibility" from DOH, as donated test kits are sitting at the Bureau of Customs due to the slow bureaucratic processes. The senator asked:"Hundreds of thousands of rapid test kits for donation by some local businessmen and procured from South Korea and China…have already arrived at least over a week ago. Yet, a big volume is still being held by Customs. Why?" AFP Graphics Read more: Rappler

bkit? Papatest ka ulit? Tsk tsk Mr. Bong Go baka kailangan ikaw pa mag salita para add pa pogi points Senator Lawson knows exactly why Customs isn't allowing tests kits in. Same reason they didn't let in certain relief goods after Yolanda. Even if we discount corruption, paperwork still needs to be done.

Bakit hindi i recommend ni go na ibypass na ung customs? 😬 Agree! Stop 'PLAYING' around. Stop the bu·reauc·ra·cy and speed up things that would help Eto na po yung pinaka mabilis nilang action FDA hasn't released permits for the kits when they're already approved in South Korea and China? 🤔 Reserved?..

Sec Duque ano ba yan? Your inaction or delay does not raise the confidence level of the Filipino. Sir, you are not a crisis leader. You are a leader in crisis. You do not inspire sir. Im sorry sir but you know this. wala ba sa emergency power ung pagsibak sa mga hayup sa customs? Ano na? Bigay pa kau ng emergency power ka duterte hindi nyo naman alam kung saan nya magagamit? BOC hindi nyo kaya? Sa China ns ba yan?

in case of energency break glass pinahihirapan lang natin sarili natin. Please answer the question honestly. Everybody knows how corrupt Customs is. H-hold niyo para may ma-seize mga opisyales noh? Pera pera nanaman kayo! Beb veronicaduterte SIS, Baka naman pede mo kausapin tatay mo na ipa release na ‘to sa BOC thanks.

Hintayin muna mabulok mga Putanginang donations na yan bago magamit ng mga nangengelangan. F U customs! 🖕🏼 iampinglacson baka po dear Senator, ipinaho hold dahil may sariling na procure ang DOH head..alam na.. Sabi ji Sec Duque, 'Baka naman...'.. They have special suite in....!. Sabi mo nga... Put your emergency powers to good use now, Duterte.

Short on doctors, Balkans brace for worst of coronavirusSKOPJE — With hospitals lacking equipment and low on doctors who have been steadily moving abroad, Balkan countries fear the worst as they watch the new coronavirus ravage their far richer

Considering the dwindling supplies of test kit and its limitation why mass testing is being consistently advised by DOHgovph RITMPH is not advisable, iampinglacson please do something fast about all this red tape including the delayed use of the UP-developed test kit. Tama na pa cute!!! Senador ka, people are dying, action na! Grrrr😡

i have no idea whats going on with DOHgovph but this does not end with quarantine and announcing new cases at the end of each day. THINK god damn it! 5000 na lamg paglabas Baka need din ng pastillas! Ano ba ang dami ng nag kakasaki at na mamatay, idistribute nayan! Wala talagang mga sense of urgency ang mga hinayupak!! nCoV2019 MassTestingPH

Seryoso? So anong hinihintay nila? Lagay? May tax na nga kahit donation till now di pa din ma release? Eh di wow! Hinihintay yata nila na maging kagaya sa Italy bago nila I release yang mga yan Pati ba testing kits gustong kotongan ng customs? please gamitin na po natin yan, 'sa tamang paraan' huh... wag na natin hayaan yan na mabulok sa customs tapos mauwi lang sa wala ang tulong...

junepineda8 Sabi kasi ng DOH walang pang need for mass testing. Nag aantay pa yata maraming mamatay? So ano dapat sa special power binigay nyo at least man lang inuna yan aksyunan. Bigay kayo ng bigay.

Ready for the worst: AFP to house patients in camps, decommissioned ships if COVID-19 cases surgeThe Philippine military is gearing up for a larger battle with COVID-19 which might require converting some of its camp facilities and decommissioned ships as quarantine sites if the number of cases surged. | FMangosingINQ FMangosingINQ AFP Ready. FMangosingINQ Omg.. Dun pa talaga? Parang Oa naman.. Sa hotel nio nlang ilagay at bakanteng condo... FMangosingINQ Dami daming buildings sa Pilipinas gagamit pa sila ng decommissioned ships. 🤣🤣🤣

Ang LAGAY ba naman i-release nila ng ganon na lang. Even if there’s a pandemic, customary ang corruption. 🙄 sa inyo nalang pag made in China hahahahaaa.....

Hihintayin daw magtake effect yung bayanihan bill para majustify. Signed na yata Back to Power NAP si Dutae. Ano ba yan, Inutil na gobyerno. kailangan po nila nito! Magkano ang dahilan? Pisteng yawa oy paspasi na ninyo Naka quarantine pa daw. Bay katindi tlga😠 Nahaharap na tayu sa matinding Crisis mag gugulangan pa ba tayu?👎🤦🏻‍♀️ COVID2019

Kelangan pa ba ng customs ng lagay bago i-release yong test kits? thekitisthekit Too much bureaucracy kasi dapat streamline nila reqmnts kapag may mga donations from other countries especially sa ganitong panahon... jollyjun Walang tongpats o di naman priorty gaya ng illegal drugs?

DOH didn't conduct Lacson's COVID-19 test, but...Sen. Panfilo “Ping” Lacson denied reports of being tested by the health department for COVID-19 infection after online users included his name in the list of public officials who availed of the testing kits for the virus. However, his diagnostics will still be conducted by a state-run laboratory. On Monday, the legislator replied to a now-deleted …

rhardo , bro awa ni. BOC wag nyo harangin yan. our greed, will be the one to kill us iamkarendavila kasi donation lang kaya walang kickback naka stuck. pati ba naman ngayon kailangan pa ba ng pera kailangan pairalin culture of bribes ang mura lang ng food, wala naman kayong pagagastusan DOHgovph 1/2 Wag nilang gawing excuse na walang kaya mag-operate. Madami kaming standby na MedTech & MBB graduates/students who are willing to help operate the PCRs if needed kasi trained kami gumamit nun. Watch them insist na kailangan ng license 'wag lang maapakan ang pride nila.

Wala kasing drugs, lagyan ng drugs para lumusot. iquarantine nyo muna ang mga bagahe na yan dahil baka contaminated... ikaw, willing ka ba na gamitin sayo ang test kit na galing china? Wag na matakot dahil baka panay negative din naman ang results nyan... pag may nagpositive sa pamilya o kasama, di mo na alam san galing...

ALAMAT talaga ang customs naten!!! baka ibenta na naman yan, pagkakaperahan pa nila. Maawa naman kayo sa mga kapuwa nyo Pilipino. Ano nanaman tong kagaguhan na toh Bakit nahold Ano pa bang kailangan Sobrang importante niyan ngyon sa atin, nasa EMERGENCY na tayo bakit NAHOLD Ano toh TANGA LANG BOBO LANG Dumadami na ang ngpopositive IHOHOLD niyo pa... Puta nakakagalit..

DOH not against Marikina’s COVID-19 testing labMANILA, Philippines - While it is open to certifying Marikina City’s laboratory testing center for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), the Department of Health (DOH) said it has yet to ensure the KAguilarINQ Putcha naman doh.. Nakaka irita na kayo... Sobra na. KAguilarINQ Ang bagal mo DOH. Please prioritize this. KAguilarINQ remember, you are testing here a 'live' virus, so the testing area must be properly certified. but do it fast.

People are sick and dying.... They have to act fast! Maybe because hindi kailangan pa ng mga vip? Pero malamang bukas release agad yan, dahil may mga VIPs na kailangan magpatest! They clearly don't want us to see how many cases we truly have. I don't believe for one second that our cases are less than 1,000. With the backlogs and DOH's policies aimed at restricting testing, we should be in the thousands.

inaalocate pa sa mga VIP's Illegal drugs po ang priority ng CustomsPH. did he really say that even on a do it yourself basis? coz the test is never meant to be DIY. even the rapid testing kit needs blood sample. We need two things. Transparency. Rapid mass testing. DOHgovph kailan niyo planong simulan to? Pag umabot na ng 1000 ang positive cases sa pinas. Ang bagal. Ano ba naman yan.

Even without the Bayanihan act there's GUIDELINES AND PROCEDURES ON CUSTOMS CLEARANCE OF INTERNATIONAL DONATIONS AVAILING OF DUTY AND/OR TAX EXEMPTION DURING CALAMITIES that has been issued 2014? The One Stop Shop should be in place to smoothen the documents needed. Tangina nyo nagagawa nyo pang mangurakot sa panahon na to! People are dying!

Baka nakapagbook na ung relatives ng government officials upto the 30th degree of affinity and consanguinity. 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

Baka Para Yun Sa Mga VIP Ng Pinas !!! tsk ! tsk ! 🖕🏿🖕🏿🖕🏿 Para Tlga Yun Sa Mga Mayayaman at May Kapangyarihan Sa Gobyerno ! Mga Sakim Kayoooo !!! 🤬🤬🤬 What else!! For all VIP alipores,hindi n b kau natatakot May covid n nga sarili nyo p rn ang iniisip nyo Ang dami n namatay dahil walang testing kit,tapos ganyan p gagawin nyo?BOC mahiya nmn kau kasama ng amo nyo n nagpapahold ng testing kit,grrrrrrrrrrrr

Baka I covert to Alam mo na We're doomed! No sense of urgency. They don't suffers as we do. Mga basura ORoncesvalles Customs? Hanggang ngayon buhay pa dn mga demonyo don? Hayup!!! Maygahhhhhhd. Pabilang ulit na release na sa customs. Dapat buong 125k yan whaaaaaat?! DOHgovph totoo ba supposedly na kayo dapat makatanggap nun, bat nasa customs pa till now?

Meron may gusto ng pastillas Why? Kaya pa ba ng DILGPhilippines / DOHgovph / pnppio bantayan lahat? Grabe naman CustomsPH!!! Instead of issuing a statement, pls release the test kits. MassTestingNgayonNa iampinglacson

Bakit parang umaasa pa tayo sa donation Ng china at SK?Hindi ba nag procure Ang government Ng maraming test kit ahead of time? The system is broken, disappointing na talaga ang ating mga leaders Nagtatanong sha baka gusto pa ulit magpatest Anyare sa special powers? 🧐😡 Pag RAPPLER daw fake news. Misleading and headlines lang ang habol hindi ang katotohanan.

Kung ako taga BOC hindi ko na hinarang yan e. Dapat pinarelease ko na pagkabigay palang ng signal na dumating na sa bansa...kaso di ako taga BOC...ngayon nila naisip sundin ang proseso. Baka po ayaw na magamit ka dahil pag nalaman na positive ang mga active frontliners meron sila 100k each. Kulang daw po kasi ng labs and ng professionals who can do the tests. Ewan.

May niluluto pa, kung paanu pagkakapirahan.. balita ko chinacharge-an pa daw sa customs kahit DONATION na yan saten wiwz ibang klase talaga kayo

teddyboylocsin sir. still with the BOC? kapal nitong hayop na ito Asan ang special power na binigay kay Duterte baka tulog na ang Ama pakigising po marami po ang naghihintay ng test kits
