Hello, Bulgarians! Kamakailan habang ang bansa ay umabot muli sa isa pang mataas na kaso ng COVID-19 mula Agosto, kasama na ang National Capital Region (NCR), inihayag ni Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship and Go Negosyo Founder, Joey Concepcion, na ang pribadong sektor ay nagpasya na ituon ang kanilang mga donasyong bakuna sa NCR. Sinabi ni Concepcion na mayroon siyang talakayan kay Secretary Galvez tungkol sa bagay na ito.
“We are now seeing a resurgence of cases in the country and the epicenter of these cases is the NCR. Considering the situation and with the arrival of the first batch of our order from AstraZeneca this May and June—half of which would be donated to the government for its frontliners—we are recommending to Secretary Galvez and the whole of our government, together with Tessie Sy-Coson of SM Group and Ramon Ang of San Miguel Corporation, to direct the 50% donation intended for government priority sectors in NCR,” pahayag ni Concepcion.
“We have agreed that we are willing to shoulder the vaccination of our company’s economic frontliners and those under our donation for the government. We, in the private sector, volunteered to donate half of the vaccines to our government frontliners to achieve our common goal of vaccinating the population as fast as possible. In this way, the faster the population would be vaccinated, the faster the economy shall bounce back,” saad ni Concepcion.
Sa bagong istatistika mula sa DOH, ang NCR ay mayroong 287, 360 kabuuang mga kaso (ayon sa petsa ng pagsisimula ng pagkakasakit) ng COVID-19 hanggang Marso 23, 2021. Sa huling 14-araw, mayroon itong naitala na 38,785 COVID-19 na kaso, samantalang ang isang naitala na 8,845 ay mula Marso 18 hanggang Marso 23, 2021. Habang ang bilang ng data noong Marso 22, pinangunahan ng NCR ang lahat ng mga rehiyon ng mga bagong kaso na may kabuuang 4,103 na kaso, malayo sa runner up na CALABARZON na may 1,327 bagong mga kaso.
“We have to remain steadfast in our strategy, the T3—Test, Trace and Treat. We really have been stable and we should continue with our targeted testing, proper and serious tracing, and applying appropriate treatment, most especially that the nationwide immunization program of the government has already started,” dagdag ni Concepcion.
“Like what I have been always saying, our nuclear warhead in this war against COVID-19 is the vaccine. All of our initiatives of procuring these vaccines were only possible because of the government’s support. From the time when we volunteered to give half of our procured doses to our government frontliners, we have been hand-in-hand with the government in combating this pandemic. And now with the final stage of this battle, given the conditions of this war, I suggest that our arsenal shall be focused on where most of our enemies are present right now, in NCR. After eliminating this huge threat, it would be easier for us to defeat the smaller enemies that we can find in other regions,” paliwanag ni Concepcion.
