4 Chinese nationals apprehended for disturbance in Las Piñas City

Have you been to BF Homes within the jurisdiction of Las Piñas City lately? In case you missed the news, there was a disturbance that happened there and it involved foreign nationals who eventually got arrested by the local police, according to a Manila Bulletin news report.

To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…

Four Chinese were arrested by members of the Las Pinas City police for alarm and scandal and for possession of firearms on Monday (Jan. 24).

Police identified the suspects as Zhao Yi, 32; Zheng Chao, 32; Zhuang Zhi, 34; and Li Xue, 32, a businesswoman, all residents of Unit 617 Tower 2, Avida Tower, Alabang, Muntinlupa City.

Southern Police District (SPD) Director Brig. Gen. Jimili Macaraeg said the suspects were arrested at about 6:30 p.m. at Gate I Inner Circle Home Owners Association Inc., BF Homes, Barangay Almanza Uno, Las Pinas City.

Investigation showed the suspects were on board a black Ford Everest with plate number CAA 7449 driven by Zhao and tried to enter the subdivision but was prevented by security guards for having no homeowners association sticker and no valid ID.

The police said Zhao bumped the gate of the subdivision resulting in damages that prompted security guards to ask for police assistance.

Macaraeg said the three Chinese companions of Zhao tried to stop the police from arresting him that also resulted in their arrest.

The above report ended stating that a .45 caliber pistol loaded with six live pieces of ammunition was found in the possession of one of the foreigners.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: What do you think about this recent development? Did you encounter any troublesome foreigners within your local community? What should the Bureau of Immigration (BI) do about the reported four Chinese nationals who got arrested?

COVID-19 Crisis: Las Piñas City’s vaccination count surpasses 1.2 million, over 530,000 fully vaccinated

The City Government of Las Piñas announced that their official COVID-19 vaccination count has surpassed 1,200,000 and over 530,000 of that were counted as fully vaccinated (meaning getting injected with 2 doses of most COVID-19 vaccines or getting injected with the single-dose Janssen vaccine). The statistics are accurate as of January 22, 2022.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the official update that the City Government released online…

The official statistics.

As seen above, the total number of patients who got fully vaccinated was at 532,786. It should be noted that getting fully vaccinated as well as getting boosted are crucial in relation to the Omicron variant’s effects on the Philippines. More on the statistics, the first dose count of 557,468 is 124.7% of the target population (70%) while the second dose account is 119.2% of the target population.

Meanwhile, the official booster dose count of Las Piñas City was recorded at 114,799. For the newcomers reading this, only the fully vaccinated are eligible to avail of the booster shot (AKA 3rd shot). 114,799 out of 532,786 is equivalent to 21.5%. There’s still a long way to go before the booster dose count of the city reaches the 500,000 mark.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a resident of Las Piñas City, what is your reaction to this recent development? Do you think the city’s vaccination count could reach 2,000,000 within the year? Are the fully vaccinated members of your local community making efforts to get their booster shots? Do you hope that the City Government will receive more doses of the Sputnik vaccines as research showed they have strong resistance against the Omicron variant?

COVID-19 Crisis: Las Piñas City government releases 150,000 Noche Buena packages

In time for Christmas, the City Government of Las Piñas distributed one hundred and fifty thousand Noche Buena packages to specific constituents, according to Manila Bulletin news report. It should be recalled that months ago, Mayor Imelda Aguilar stated that her administration wants Christmas in the city to be joyful (in relation to getting vaccinated for COVID-19) and this latest move by the City Government is an extension of that.

To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…

The Las Pinas City government distributed 150,000 Noche Buena packages to senior citizens, persons with disability (PWds), and indigent families in the city.

Mayor Imelda Aguilar said the tickets for “Pamaskong Handog” of the local government were already allocated to the 20 barangays in the city since Dec. 18.

Aguilar said the city government aims to finish the distribution of “Pamaskong Hadog” tickets on Wednesday, Dec. 22, so that the beneficiaries will have something to prepare and eat on Christmas eve.

She said it’s been the city’s annual tradition to distribute “Pamaskong Handog” to senior citizens, PWDs and indigent families.

I want all Las Piñeros to have something on their table in celebration of Christmas. In our own little way, the city government can make them happy and celebrate a joyful Christmas,” Aguilar said.

Vice-Mayor April Aguilar has been visiting barangays in the city to ensure the orderly and timely distribution of the Noche Buena packages.

The above report ended stating that each Noche Buena package comes with spaghetti noodles and sauce, condensed milk, fruit cocktail, and three kilograms of rice grain.

Apart from encouraging local residents to get vaccinated, the overall count of vaccinations in the city has surpassed the 1,000,000 mark and the number of local active COVID-19 cases went down. There is still the potential threat of the Omicron variant which is present here in the Philippines and no less than President Rodrigo Duterte expressed worry about coming up with the funds to deal with it. While people in Metro Manila are enjoying the freedom to move around under the Alert Level 2 status (much less restrictions compared to Alert Levels 3 and 4), there is still the need to be cautious and follow health protocols.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a resident of Las Piñas City, what is your reaction to this recent development? Are you confident that Christmas in your city will be more joyful this year? If you have not been vaccinated, do you plan to get vaccinated during the holidays?

COVID-19 Crisis: Muntinlupa City issues public warning about Omicron variant

The Omicron variant is still being feared a lot by people and government officials as it is often being reported in the news and the recent published results of two separate studies that found the said variant more infectious and resistant to the COVID-19 vaccine of Pfizer. The Omicron variant was recently detected here in the Philippines and in relation to that, the City Government of Muntinlupa issued a public warning, according to a recent Manila Bulletin report.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin report. Some parts in boldface…

The Muntinlupa City government has reminded residents to strictly follow minimum public health standards after the detection of the first two Omicron variant cases in the country.

Dr. Juancho Bunyi, head of the Muntinlupa City Health Office (CHO), said when the news about the detection of the Omicron variant cases came out, the CHO alerted all barangays and communities to be ready.

Muntinlupa’s Prevent, Detect, Isolation, Treat, Reintegration (PDITR) and the vaccination teams are on alert to ensure that the city is ready, Bunyi added.

He advised the strengthening of rescue units in barangays and the disaster risk reduction and management office due to the Omicron variant, and to strictly implement health protocols especially in malls and other closed areas, and crowded places.

According to the Department of Health (DOH), two Omicron variant cases were detected from 48 samples that were sequenced on Dec. 14.

One Omicron-positive case is a returning overseas Filipino (ROF) who arrived in the Philippines from Japan on Dec. 1 on Philippine Airlines flight number PR 0427. His sample was collected on Dec. 5 and he tested positive for coronavirus disease (COVID-19) on Dec. 7. The patient is in an isolation facility managed by the Bureau of Quarantine (BOQ) and is asymptomatic but had symptoms of colds and cough upon arrival, according to the DOH.

Prior to the reporting of the first Philippine cases of Omicron, a lot of people have been going out visiting places and coming to varied businesses (stores, food-and-beverage, cinemas, etc.) for their needs and wants. This is evident in Alabang which has many places that attract people like Festival Mall and Commercenter in Filinvest City, the Alabang Town Center (ATC) and Molito commercial complex located just outside Ayala Alabang Village, and more. Those said places are known to attract customers not only from around Muntinlupa but also from BF Homes, Las Piñas City, Cavite province, Laguna province and more.

How the City Government’s public warning about the Omicron variant will affect local commerce remains to be seen.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a Muntinlupa City resident, what can you say about this latest local development? Have you done a lot of research about the Omicron variant already?

COVID-19 Crisis: More than 40 million fully vaccinated people in the Philippines

According to a recent report published by the Philippine News Agency (PNA), that the number of people here in the Philippines who got fully vaccinated for COVID-19 (two doses of most brands of vaccines specifically) has surpassed forty million.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the PNA report. Some parts in boldface…

The Philippines has already administered 95,982,996 doses of the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) vaccine nationwide, with 40,693,310 Filipinos now fully protected against the dreaded disease.

Data from the National Covid-19 vaccination dashboard as of December 10 also showed that 54,553,456 doses were used as first shots while 736,230 were for booster or additional shots.

The government targets to complete the two primary doses of at least 54 million adult Filipinos, at least 80 percent of children aged 12 to 17 years old, and booster shots for 1.6 million health care workers by the end of the year to achieve population protection.

Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr., National Task Force Against Covid-19 chief implementer, earlier said the government will aim to increase the number of fully vaccinated Filipinos up to 77 million by the end of the first quarter next year and up to 90 million by the second quarter.

The government reminded the public to avail themselves of booster shots six months after receiving their second doses or three months for those who received the single-dose Janssen jab.

Senior citizens and adults with comorbidities have priority lanes in vaccination centers.

In relation to the above news, it was announced recently that COVID-19 vaccinations has exceeded 1,000,000 in Las Piñas City and that figure includes vaccination of minors as well as booster shots for a growing number of fully vaccinated people. Almost 478,000 patients got fully vaccinated in Las Piñas City.

While having more than 40,000,000 fully vaccinated people around the Philippines is pleasing to hear, it remains to be seen how the national and local authorities will react in the event that the media-magnified Omicron variant gets detected within the country. The national authorities have been monitoring the Omicron variant developments while many other countries saw their government impose restrictions. Meanwhile the people behind Sputnik vaccines insisted that their current vaccines remained effect against all variants and went ahead with developing another version of their vaccine with Omicron in mind.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: Does this latest development make you feel confident about what lies ahead for the Philippines during this pandemic? If you were vaccinated, are you eager right now to get a booster shot? Are you convinced that world governments overreacted towards the Omicron variant?
