5 H1N1 suspected cases in Philippines
May 6, 2009 § 3 Comments
The Philippine Department of Health (DOH) confirmed reports that at least five (5) suspected cases of people with Influenza A H1N1 are being observed right now in different hospitals in the country. Two of these cases are in Cebu. So far, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported a thousand suspected cases of H1N1 virus infected persons and about 30 fatalities–so far. One of those suspected of having the virus is reported to have improved.
Meanwhile, a legislator by the name of Senator Miguel Zubiri who just came from the States arrogantly defied the DOH rules on virus containment. Zubiri asked why he’s being asked to quarantine himself. He’s healthy. He must not undergone self-quarantine.
Zubiri and another senator, Bong Revilla, also disobeyed the DOH ruling on self-quarantine.
These legislators are dumb, really, really, dumb. They just don’t get it.
How would we then expect ordinary citizens to follow government regulations when these senators show arrogance in power? These senators should act as our leaders. Makisama naman kayo! You should be ashamed of yourselves.
Well, what am I saying here? That I even expect these two nincoompoops to follow the law? I must be dreaming.
I must not castigate these two guys simply because it’s expected of them to act that way. They don’t know any better. Same goes to DENR secretary Lito Atienza who wants to push thru with the Pacquiao roadshow simply because he needs Pacman to boost his political chances. Talk about sacrificing the health of thousands of Filipinos just for a morale-boasting show.
