Sarangani keeps on providing aid to towns

ALABEL, Sarangani (June 29, 2021) – Alabel Municipal Health Officer (MHO) Dr. Honorato Fabio (left) and Marvelle Dawn Dela Cruz (center), Alabel MHO-medical technologist, receive some test kits, personal protective equipment (PPEs), and disinfectants on June 24. The essential supplies were distributed among the province-run hospitals and Rural Health Units in Sarangani which were part of the assistance provided by the provincial local government to its municipalities apart from the P7 million equally allocated to each of the seven towns to augment their budget. These initiatives were made possible through Governor Steve Chiongbian Solon, Senator Manny Pacquiao, Deputy Speaker Ruel Pacquiao, Vice Governor Elmer de Peralta, the Sangguniang Panlalawigan members and with the full support of the seven municipal mayors. The distribution of the additional Covid-19 supplies is expected to improve the province-wide risk-based targeted testing which according to Yadao “is being conducted in crowded areas like our public markets, our provincial jail, and even in the Capitol because of the numbers ng mga nagpa-positive.” He also disclosed that 90% of the individuals contracted with Covid-19 were asymptomatic. “Sila yung tinatawag nating super spreader. The best thing to really do is to conduct tests kaya ang laking tulong nitong additional test kits natin. He also reminded the public to practice the minimum health standards. “Kung wala namang importanteng gagawin sa labas, please stay at home.” (Jake Narte-Joshua John Pantonial/SARANGANI PROVINCIAL INFORMATION
