QC mayor asks BOQ to coordinate with the LGU when housing COVID-19 patients at city hotels

CALOOCAN CITY, July 27 (PIA) --The Quezon City government has called on the Bureau of Quarantine (BOQ) to coordinate with the QC LGU whenever they house COVID-19 patients in various hotels in the city.

Mayor Joy Belmonte made the plea after it was discovered that three hotels in the city were being used to isolate 192 COVID-19 positive individuals not from Quezon City.

“Napaka-ingat namin sa pagpili ng mga isolation facilities para di mangamba ang mga residente namin,  tapos heto’t nalaman nalang namin sa routine inspections na may mga naka-isolate na mga pasyente sa mga QC hotels na di kami nasabihan,” said Belmonte.

“Hindi man lang sila nagpaabiso o nakipag-ugnayan sa amin bago nila ginawa ito. Maayos ba ang security nila upang masiguradong di lumalabas ang mga pasyente?  May sapat na healthworkers ba silang nag-aasikaso sa mga pangangailangan ng mga maysakit? May proper waste disposal protocols and infectious waste haulers ba sila para siguraduhing di makahawa sa iba? These concerns have to be coordinated with us because our job is to further prevent the spead of this virus in our city given that the hotels are used as quarantine facilites,” she continued.

According to Belmonte, the COVID-19 positive patients were found isolated in three hotels during various joint inspections by the Business Permits and Licensing Department (BPLD), City Health Department, Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (DRRMO), Department of Public Order and Safety (DPOS), and the QC Tourism Department (QCTD).

In her report Belmonte said, QCTD Action Officer Tetta Tirona said 75 COVID-19 positive individuals have been discovered staying in MC Hotel, 57 in Fox Hotel and 60 in Astrotel.

“The team was surprised because nobody from concerned government agencies informed the local government, whether written or verbal, about housing COVID-19 positive patients in MC Hotel and Fox Hotel," said Tirona.

It was only during the inspection of MC Hotel and Fox Hotel that the team was informed by the BOQ about the presence of COVID-19 patients, all of whom are asymptomatic.

She said Astrotel informed the city government about the positive individuals, but this came late as they were already billeted in the hotel days before the notice.

Tirona added that the COVID-19 patients discovered in Astrotel were all residents of Caloocan City, according to a nurse from the Department of Health (DOH).

“While we welcome patients from neighbouring cities who need to be quarantined, we would like to be told in advance so we can ensure their safety and security as well as those of our residents living nearby.”

It was also observed by Margarita Santos, head of the Business Permits and Licensing Department (BPLD) that these hotels were not able to present proof of compliance with various regulatory clearances of the city. “The violations of these hotels could further endanger the lives of the patients staying in them,” she said.

Para sa mga Pulahan

Kung narito ka ngayon. Marahil ay isa ka sa mga napadpad o mas magandang sabihin ay isa ka sa marites na nakatambay sa page ng mga kakampinks. Kung tama ako, para sayo talaga to!  Para sa mga PULAHAN. Wala ba kayong page na nagmamahal sa inyo kaya andito kayo sa page ng mga kakampinks? :) Salamat pa rin sa pagdalaw kahit ang purpose niyo talaga ay ang ibash kami. ✌️

Bakit Uto-Uto ang mga Pulahan?

Yung tipong habang tumitingin ka sa feed mo may nakita kang nag-share ng mga conspiracy theory. Bakit ba naeenganyo sila? Paniwalang paniwala sila. Basahin ang maikling kasagutan tungkol dito. It makes them feel special and different. It gives them a feeling of being better than others, of having their eyes opened to a 'truth' that others don't see. That's why some call non-believers 'sheeple.' I think it's similar to the feeling we get whenever we learn an obscure yet interesting piece of trivia. The thought of "No one else knows it!" I also think conspiracies appeal to the way humans think, especially now. A desire to search for patterns. There has to be reason and purpose for anything. But this is not right! I still blame the lack of the fundamental research skills that needs to be taught in school. I believe you get to have a full subject on your 4th year, but investigative skills and fact checking should be honed at a young age.
