Duterte lambasts medical workers

September 25, 2020 | tqujrlgr | No Comments

first_imgDuterte responded to the call of the medical group as he placed National Capital Region, Laguna, Cavite, Rizal, and Bulacan under modified ECQ for 15 days starting today. In an address to the public late Sunday night, Duterte said that the healthcare workers could just have written a letter or asked for an audience to request Metro Manila’s enhanced community quarantine (ECQ)  shift instead of going public.“There is no need for you and for the guys, 1,000 of you, telling us what to do publicly. You could have just written us a letter. Lahat naman ng sinasabi ninyo sinusunod namin,” Duterte said. MANILA – While he has approved the grant of additional benefits to them, President Rodrigo Duterte unleashed a rant against healthcare workers for trying “to demean the government efforts.” In a letter to Duterte over the weekend, medical groups had pleaded for a “timeout,” asking for a two-week return to ECQ in Metro Manila as coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases in the country continued to surge. “Pero huwag kayo magsigaw-sigaw rebolusyon. Sa totoo…Magsabi ka rebolusyon, go ahead, try it. Sirain natin, patayin natin lahat ng mga may COVID. Is that what you want? We can always end our existence in this manner,” he added.“I dare you, do it,” he further said. “I don’t give a fuck if you gather one thousand, two thousand, but bear in mind na kayo mismo ipa-take over ko…tingnan ko kung ano ang lagay ninyo. We are not incompetents here because we are not doctors.”Earlier in his speech, Duterte has approved healthcare workers’ additional benefits like risk allowance for private sector healthcare workers treating COVID-19 patients; P10,000 to P15,000 for every healthcare worker that gets sick; life insurance; free accommodation; transportation; and testing./PNcenter_img “I am sure that is not in your heart, I am sure that in your despair, I would like to tell you na ang iyong gobyerno ay hindi nag-iiwan ng mga trabahante. We are doing everything possible to alleviate the situation, to assist our healthcare workers,” Duterte said. “Kung sabihin ninyo you raise the spectacle of agony ninyo, you treat it as if you are about ready to stop work, huwag naman ganon kasi kawawa ang mga kababayan. Sino ang aasahan namin?” he added. He said that while he understands that the health workers are “bone-weary” after several months of battling the infectious respiratory illness but he said that they should not demean the government efforts against COVID-19.last_img read more

Two local policies adopted at B.C. Chamber AGM

January 11, 2020 | uhjupwev | No Comments

first_imgThe intention is to adopt a strategy that has natural resource development projects leave communities better off, rather than just compensated.For example, better off is the difference between a temporary camp with trucked in water and services, and a fully developed camp with in ground water and sewer infrastructure.The second approved policy resolution is for the provincial government to encourage proposals for natural gas electric generation facilities, and to help with the development of natural gas fueled vehicles and infrastructure for consumers.- Advertisement -The wording of that recommendation was changed slightly to no longer include the phrase “first choice” for the consideration of natural gas projects.The policy resolution that wasn’t supported by the policy board proposed including basic driver training as part of the curriculum for high school students.Advertisement In its decision, the board writes, “the Policy Review Committee do not believe that driver education is an appropriate role for the education system.”First Vice-President Russ Beerling says the Chamber will now reevaluate that suggestion.“We will likely look at that on the local level and maybe try again next year to get it passed provincially.”The AGM was also a successful one for Director Moira Green, who was elected to sit on the B.C. Chamber Board to represent the northeast region of the province.Advertisementlast_img read more
