Nanawagan si Senate Majority Leader Juan Miguel Zubiri Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases na magpatupad istriktong COVID measure sa Northern Mindanao nang sa gayon ay makontrol ang tumataas ng kaso ng coronavirus disease doon.

“I am appealing to the IATF to impose stricter measures in Northern Mindanao to control the rise of cases, and to instruct the regional IATF to enforce these measures now before the outbreak gets worse,” pahayag ni Zubiri.

“The region might benefit from a change in our quarantine classification, as well as localized lockdowns in areas with particularly alarming surges. We might also need to reinstitute the negative COVID-19 test requirement for inbound travelers.

I hope the IATF can assess the situation and enforce the necessary measures as quickly as possible. We must act now before it gets out of hand,” dagdag pa nito.

Ayon kay Zubiri, iniulat ng regional IATF sa Northern Mindanao na may 300 porsiyentong pagtaas ng kaso ng COVID-19 sa rehiyon nitong nakalipas na dalawang linggo.

Nitong lamang nagdaang linggo, may naitalang 962 kaso sa Cagayan de Oro City na 100 porsyentong pagtaas sapul noong Marso

“In Bukidnon, our medical frontliners are struggling to deal with the sudden surge of COVID-19 patients,” lahad pa ng majority leader, n amula sa Northern Mindanao.

Unti-unti na ring umanong napupuno ang mga ospital sa pagtaas ng kaso ng COVID-19 sa naturang rehiyon.

“Our hospitals are already filling up. I know that Bukidnon Provincial Medical Hospital (BPMH) is full, along with some of our private hospitals. And Northern Mindanao Medical Center has already raised its status to Code Red, with 50 percent of their operating capacity taken up by COVID cases,” ayon pa kay Zubiri.
