Despite having no confirmed new coronavirus disease (Covid-19) cases and patients under investigation (PUIs), the Department of Health (DOH) regional office here has called on all stakeholders, local government units, hospitals, health care providers, schools, agencies, members of the media and health partners to intensify efforts to prevent Covid-19 from entering Bicol.

Dr. Ernie Vera, DOH-Bicol regional director, in a press conference here early this week said they were continuously reminding everyone to strictly follow preventive measures.

“As it is our individual responsibility to protect ourselves and the people around us, and it is only through collective efforts and actions in our communities will we be able to limit the spread of the virus,” he said.

Vera also advised the public to remain calm but be vigilant, practice proper hygiene, proper cough etiquette, healthy lifestyle, social distancing, and face masks when needed. Avoiding unnecessary travel and postponement of mass gatherings, are being advised as well.

“Those experiencing symptoms and has history of travel and exposure must immediately consult the nearest health facility for a test. Those with exposure to Covid-19 and has history of travel but are not experiencing symptoms must strictly follow home quarantine procedures. The public are also asked to coordinate and cooperate with the government for the contact tracing,” he added.

The DOH also reminded all health care providers, institutions, and stakeholders to exercise utmost prudence in sharing sensitive information about suspected or confirmed cases.

“Similar to what Secretary Duque said, our objectives for sharing information are two-pronged: ensure the public’s health and safety by facilitating contact tracing and ensure that the individual’s right to privacy is not impinged. Hence, we appeal to all to coordinate closely with the Department of Health when disseminating information to the public and within their respective institutions. Let us make sure the information sharing process will yield the utmost benefit, and avoid unnecessary stress and stigma to individuals and institutions,” Vera said. (PNA)
