MANILA, Philippines — The Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) has set up makeshift tents at the social hall of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3 to provide comfort and convenience to locally-stranded individuals (LSIs) currently lodged at the airport waiting for their flights.

The 28 tents are the initial set from 100 tents that MIAA plans to set up for LSIs at the airport under the guidance of the Department of Transportation (DOTr).

Additional tents are expected to be established soon.

Apart from temporary shelters, MIAA also provided a dedicated shower area at the airport’s parking lot, for the exclusive use of LSIs.

400 pasaherong stranded sa Pio Duran Port pinayagan nang makapasok sa Masbate

Pinahintulutan na ng Pamahalaang Panlalawigan ng Masbate na makapasok sa probinsya ang 400 pasahero na apat na araw nang stranded sa Pio Duran port sa Albay dahil sa “no vaccine, no entry policy”.

Sa halip na pababalikin ang mga ito sa kanilang pinanggalingan ay isasailalim na lang sila sa antigen swab test ng local government unit (LGU) bago pasakayin ng barko.

Kinuha na rin ang kanilang mga pangalan at uuwiang LGU para sa proper coordination.

Ayon sa lokal na pamahalaan, ito na ang huling beses na papayagang nilang makauwi ang mga locally stranded individuals (LSI) na hindi pa bakunado.

Sa susunod na may magtatangkang papasok sa lalawigan na walang bakuna at sapat na dokumento ay sasampahan na ng kaso.

Ayon pa kay Masbate Governor Antonio Kho, layon ng “no vaccine, no entry policy” na hindi na makakalusot sa checkpoint ang mga colorum na sasakayan na namemeke ng mga dokumento.

“There is an increase in transmission of COVID-19 in the province of Masbate because of this colorum van that enters and fabricates documents,” aniya.

MANILA, Philippines — The provinces of Bukidnon and Misamis Occidental will temporarily close their respective borders to incoming locally stranded individuals (LSIs) for the next two weeks.

According to Misamis Occidental Governor Philip Tan Itoy, the two-week closure of borders is to allow local health workers and other frontliners to rest from the stress and load brought about by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. 

Governor Itoy also explained that the province’s isolation facilities are in need of cleaning while some require general repair as well as other maintenance works.

The LGUs’ moratorium on LSIs will remain in effect until October 4.

Based on the latest record, the province of Misamis Occidental has the fifth highest number of COVID-19 cases in Northern Mindanao. MNP (with reports from Weng Fernandez)
