MANILA, Philippines – Nagpaalala ang Civil Service Commission (CSC) sa mga empleyado ng pamahalaan na maagang magsumite ng Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Networth (SALN).

Ayon kay CSC Chairman Francisco Duque III, kailangang isumite sa tamang oras ang inyong mga SALN bago ang deadline na Abril 30 upang hindi mapatawan ng parusa.

“Akoy nananawagan sa mga opisyal at kawani sa gobyerno wag po natin kalimutan na ang deadline sa pagsumite ng SALN ay sa April 30 2013.”

Nagpaalala naman ang CSC na ang 2013 new SALN form ang dapat gamitin ng mga government employee.

Nakasaad sa bagong form kung saan dapat ilagay ang detailed assets kung ito ay lote, bahay o condo residential, commercial o industrial.

Importante ring ilagay ang acquisition cost at market value ng pag-aari.

“Kasama na lahat yung conjugal properties dapat yan ay nakadeklara lahat, at lahat ng deklarasyon ay masasakupan ang taong 2012 hanggang Dec. 31 ng 2012.”

Sinabi pa ni Duque na mayroong review and compliance committee sa bawat ahensya ng pamahalaan na siyang tututok sa mga SALN na ipapasa ng mga empleyado ng gobyerno.

“Lahat ng mga SALN ay dadaan sa isang pagrepaso para siguraduhing tama ang form na ginamit, tama ang pag-fillup ng espasyo o ng mga blako, dapat lagyan ng not applicable wag lang blank baka may maglagay ng iba dun eh madisgrasya kayo.”

Paalala pa ng CSC sa mga hindi makapagpapasa ng SALN sa itinakdang deadline, mayroon itong parusa na 1-6 months suspension sa 1st offense, at pagkakatanggal sa trabaho sa 2nd offense. (Grace Casin & Ruth Navales, UNTV News)

Health chief Duque won’t be inoculated with Sinovac COVID-19 jab – DOH

Robie de Guzman   •   March 1, 2021

MANILA, Philippines – Health Secretary Francisco Duque III will not be receiving the CoronaVac vaccine developed by Chinese firm Sinovac Biotech, the Department of Health (DOH) said.

“FTD (Francisco T Duque III) will not be vaccinated with SINOVAC as EUA provisions exclude 60 and above,” the DOH said in a message to reporters.

“He also underscores that we will follow the prioritization framework, and will ensure that limited doses will go to the HCWs first,” it added.

Duque, 64, earlier said he is willing to receive Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine but the age bracket recommended by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) might become an issue.

The FDA said the Sinovac jabs are only recommended to be administered to people aged 18 to 59 years old as it showed a higher efficacy rate in the said group based on clinical trials conducted in Indonesia and Turkey.

Duque led the rollout of the government’s COVID-19 vaccination drive for healthcare workers and other frontliners on Monday after the donated 600,000 Sinovac vaccines from China arrived in the country on Sunday. – RRD (with details from Correspondent Aiko Miguel)

Gov’t officials not priority for COVID-19 vaccine – Duque

Marje Pelayo   •   December 25, 2020

MANILA, Philippines – Health Secretary Francisco Duque III has admitted that the year 2020 was the most difficult year for the Department of Health (DOH). 

“Basta ang masasabi ko ang 2020 is the most difficult year in the history of the Department. The most difficult,” he said emphasizing the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) as the biggest challenge facing the global health care system this year.

“Even the most powerful countries talagang pinaiyak ng COVID-19. Lahat talaga umiyak dito. Sobrang takot, pag-aalangan, sobrang maraming mga unknowns,” he added.

Despite all these, the Health Chief is grateful for the public’s efforts to combat the virus, and that he hopes that a vaccine will be available by 2021.

“Hindi naman tayo natinag at patuloy naman tayo sa pag-unlad ng kapasidad natin across the five pillars of the pandemic response,” he said.

The country is now preparing its cold storage for the arrival of COVID-19 vaccines as they should remain in extremely low temperatures.

Duque added that the government should also tighten its border control to curb the spread of COVID-19 especially in the face of a new strain currently affecting a population in the United Kingdom.

While doing so, the country must also expand its health capacity, its capability to flatten the curve of infection, and maintain balance between the economy and health of the public.

“So iyong equilibrium na iyan napakamahalaga po dahil gaya ng sinabi ko—yung goal dito is really economic recovery and normalcy of the lives of our people,” he said.

“So marami po tayong ginagawa yung five: prevention, detection, isolation, treatment, and reintegration strategy in our pandemic response,” he added.

Meanwhile, Duque stressed that healthcare workers, the poorest Filipinos, and uniformed personnel are among the priorities for vaccination.

He assured that there will be no VIP treatment among government officials when it comes to access to the COVID-19 vaccine.

“Babantayan natin iyan kaya maganda po ang papel na ginagampanan ng media dahil talagang kasama po namin kayo na magmamatyag. We will look into this na wala pong mga tinatawag nating VIP treatment,” Duque said.

The Health Secretary still reminds the public to observe proper health protocols even with the availability of the vaccine so as to curb the spread of COVID-19. MNP (with reports from Aiko Miguel)

DOH suggests face masks, other creative alternatives as ‘safe’ holiday gifts

Robie de Guzman   •   December 10, 2020

MANILA, Philippines – The Department of Health (DOH) on Thursday urged the public to consider giving holiday gifts that will promote health and safety from the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

Health Secretary Francisco Duque III said they are particularly suggesting giving face masks and face shields as gifts to help ensure protection from COVID-19 transmission.

“When planning for the holiday gift-giving, think of ligtas na regalo – which gifts can make them safe. One thing we recommend are face masks which may serve as a constant reminder to the recipient to wear one,” Duque said in a statement.

He also suggests giving gifts like healthy food and fruits, exercise gadgets/equipment that promote physical activity and healthy lifestyle, as well as improve body resistance against diseases.

Duque likewise recommends do-it-yourself (DIY) gifts to limit the chance of in-store shopping. He also noted that the best gift they can give to their loved ones is a safer holiday celebration.

“We can also give DIY gifts that will not require us to go shopping, like handmade cards, arts and crafts, or a video,” he said.

“Such gifts make it more personal and also keep you from going to crowded places, thus reducing the risk of acquiring or transmitting the virus,” he said.

The health chief also reminded the public to check the label on kids’ toys to determine its safety.

“When giving gifts to kids, always ensure that it is safe for them and check the warning label on kids’ toys,” Duque said.
