OPEN LETTER TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF THE PHILIPPINES
To our most beloved Pres. Rodrigo Roa Duterte, through DOH Secretary Francisco T. Duque III,
WE ARE NOW IN A STATE OF MEDICAL HEALTH EMERGENCY!
I am a FaceBook Bug and one of your solid supporter and defender. I am religiously monitoring the onslaught of this killer Corona Virus here in the Philippines and other counties worldwide. I am also greatly affected by the lockdown because I am just a commission basis wage earner as a loan consultant.
It is evident that countries no matter how wealthy or poor they are, many are experiencing the effects of their laxity in implementing Preventive & Control Measures in combatting this dreaded virus.
So far, Germany is doing well in combatting COVID-19 with the LOWEST percentage of MORTALITY! With 24, 873 confirmed infections, only 94 deaths was reported to date, March 23, 2020.
His Excellency Pres. Duterte and DOH Sec. Duque, I regret to say but we have to admit that we are one of those countries with a high mortality rate if you are going to check on confirmed infections over reported deaths in our country. We have to do something to reduce COVID-19 infections and mortality rates to save our country and our fellow Filipinos.
Our situation is really on the brink of life and death, with the unabated widespread of COVID-19 and the implementation of lockdown that will starve many daily wage earners who were locked in the Metropolis, we need to ACT VERY FAST in implementing a SCIENTIFIC MEDICAL & NURSING APPROACH in combatting this killer virus. I have observed that we are in quandary, elected government officials have no effective way or should I say, they are divided “kanya-kanya” and unsure of what to do. If we don’t act fast and implement a Scientific Method (National approach) in combatting this dreaded Corona Virus, it will greatly affect our economy and many will die of starvation and other diseases. Lucky are those situated in the islands far from the Metropolis because they can live a normal life without the fear of starvation.
It is my fervent wish and prayer that this FB post may reach and caught the attention of His Excellency, our loving Pres. Rodrigo Roa Duterte to consider some of my proposal/suggestions:
1. TO CREATE AN EXCLUSIVE, CENTRALIZED, ISOLATED, TEMPORARY HOSPITAL/MEDICAL FACILITY IN EVERY CITY THAT HAS A HIGH COVID-19 INFECTION RATES. ALL PUMs and PUIs MUST BE CONFINED IN THESE EXCLUSIVE FACILITIES.
A) This way it will not lockdown hospitals that face the danger of being infected with COVID-19 patients.
B) If many hospitals will get lockdown, it will create a severe problem for all patients under hospital care and it will increase the death toll, more doctors and nurses to be quarantined and we will have a big shortfalls on medical professionals, some will die of infection too.
C) COVID-19 Patients that are treated in hospitals may infect other patients, doctors, nurses, hospital personnel and visitors to the hospital.
2. APPOINT A VETERAN DOCTOR TO OVERSEE EVERY HOSPITAL/MEDICAL FACILITY IN ORDER TO REDUCE MORTALITY RATE.
A) He/she must be responsible to all patients admitted in the facility, must be evaluated to ensure MORTALITY RATE is greatly reduced.
B) To ensure implementing rules and guidelines are strictly followed
3. PROVIDE MEDICAL EQUIPMENTS, MEDICINES, FOOD SUPPLIES, HOSPITAL BEDS, AND OTHER NECESSITIES IN EVERY HOSPITAL/MEDICAL FACILITY
4. ONLY THESE FACILITIES WILL BE PROVIDED WITH TESTING KITS (Must be accounted for every patient) TO PREVENT PILFERAGE. (Walang palakasan (VIP) na kinukuha ng mga politiko para sa kanilang pamilya at kamag-anak)
5. THERE MUST BE A SEPARATE ROOMS OR PARTITIONS BETWEEN PUIs and PUMs WITH COLOR CODED HAND TAGS TO EASILY IDENTIFY THEM
6. WAREHOUSES, BUILDINGS, GYMS & MILITARY CAMPS CAN BE UTILIZED AS TEMPORARY HOSPITAL/MEDICAL FACILITY
7. HIRE VOLUNTEER MEDICAL PERSONNEL (WE HAVE MANY NEWLY GRADUATES) THIS CAN BE THEIR TRAINING GROUND, THEY JUST FOLLOW STRICT MEDICAL PROCEDURES & GUIDELINES. MUST HAVE CONSTANT LECTURES FROM THEIR DOCTOR/SUPERVISOR IN THE FACILITY.
8. THESE FACILITIES MUST BE GUARDED BY MILITARY TO PREVENT ESCAPEES FROM SPREADING THE VIRUS
9. ALL THOSE WHO WILL RECOVER SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO GO HOME. MUST BE QUARANTINED FOR AN ADDITIONAL SEVEN (7) DAYS IN A SEPARATE FACILITY BECAUSE THERE ARE SOME RECORDED, THEY DIED AFTER RECOVERY AND INFECTED THEIR FAMILIES.
10. ENFORCE A VERY STRICT IMPLEMENTING RULES & GUIDELINES IN ALL FACILITIES.
I hope that this proposal/suggestion can reach our beloved President Rodrigo Roa Duterte for consideration.
