Boracay biz owners appeal for antigen testing for tourists

KALIBO, Aklan, Oct. 12 (PIA) – Business owners and operators in Boracay Island  appealed to the government to allow antigen testing as pre-entry requirement  for tourists going to the island instead of the reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test.

In a press briefing of Presidential Spokesperson Sec. Harry Roque held recently, Dr. Henry Chusuey, owner of Hennan Group of Resorts, conveyed the request of his fellow Boracay business operators  to the government to impose cheaper and faster COVID-19 test for tourists, which the rapid antigen testing offers.

Many business owners lamented that many of their guests had already cancelled their bookings in the resort island due to the RT-PCR testing pre-entry requirement.

RT-PCRT testing, as complained by non-Aklanon residents/tourists, is very much expensive that could cost from P4,000 to P12,000.

“May request sana na kung pwede maging pilot antigen ang Boracay to make it easier for the tourists to come to Boracay,” Chusuey said during the press briefing, adding that the antigen testing be done at the airport.

He also said that one of the advantages of antigen testing is the determination of result which is very much faster than the RT-PCRT testing.  The former could produce results in just around 15 to 30 minutes.

Chusuey noted that tourism in this time of pandemic is not essential; hence, putting too much hassle to tourists in visiting the island would defeat its purpose of opening, as most of them will just back-out in going to Boracay.

Sec. Roque acknowledged the concerns of the business sector in Boracay and empathized with the situation, noting the numerous cancellation of bookings, affecting the livelihood of Boracaynons, workers and business owners.

However, Roque appealed for patience and understanding to wait for the result of the ongoing pilot antigen testing as the government could not compromise the health of the people in Boracay.

So far, according to Roque, the initial result of the pilot testing is good, and once declaration will be made for its safe use for tourism purposes, no doubt that it will be used also in other tourism places such as Boracay Island.  (LTP/SQP/PIA-Aklan)

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.

Ginusto Niyo 'Yan!

'Di kami nagkamali, we already expected those things to happen... You're making fun of our opinions pero 'di niyo magets na para 'yun sa ikabubuti ng lahat. Now, why so sudden bigla kayong nagreklamo? eh diba ginusto niyo 'yan, honestly dito samin nagsasabing nagsisisi sila sa naboto nila, for me hindi na kasalanan ng mga politiko na naloko nila kayo dahil there are so many evidences na. Pero all of you still chose to be fooled and deceived by them. But it's too late na eh nakaupo na sila sa pwesto na hindi nila deserve. Pero ito na lang... Let our response be, GINUSTO NIYO 'YAN!
