An eight grade student of The Philippine School in Dubai was stabbed four times by his schoolmate whom he confronted after flashing finger on him.

Roj Pascual, 14-years old, was injured by his seventh grade schoolmate with what he said similar to a military or camping knife. He was wounded in the back, his left arm and left side.

Pascual’s family wonders how the knife was brought inside the school premises, stating that the day before the incident, their son and the suspect already had a conflict.

Jocelyn Sollano, the Philippine School principal said that ‘they can’t disclose anything because it’s under investigation by the police’. She also denied that the Philippine School has security problems, stating that the school had ‘all the security guards’ and ‘everyone is safe’.

Though the Philippine School was given a ‘good’ mark on their health and safety by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority or KHDA, they’ve noted that there was ‘a lack of promptness in teachers’ responses to misbehaviour which had a negative effect on learning’.

Pinay Nurse from Saudi tested negative for MERS-CoV

Posted by:

Contrary to what was earlier reported by the Department of Health or DOH, the pinay nurse from Saudi Arabia is tested negative for the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV). This is after the result of test from Research Institute for Tropical Medicine or RITM came back.

The 37-year old Filipina nurse who arrived in the Philippines last August 28, worked at an intencive care unit of a provincial hospital in Saudi Arabia. She was checked up and swabbed after showing symptoms like fever, cough and colds before leaving Saudi. But she returned to the Philippines even before she got the result.

When the Pinay nurse was informed that she was positive for MERS-CoV, the Philippine health authorities did another examination for confirmation. She was discharged from the Southern Philippines Medical Center in Davao City where she was quarantined right away, after the RITM s examination came back negative.

Pinay Nurse from Saudi Arabia positive for MERS-CoV

Posted by:

A 37-year old Pinay Nurse who arrived last Friday from Saudi Arabia had been tested positive for Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Corona Virus or MERS-CoV.

According to Department of Health (DOH) Secretary Enrique Ona, the nurse, who was from General Santos City, was advised of her condition and was accompanied by a personnel from the National Epidemiology Center to the Southern Philippines Medical Center in Davao Citiy.

The Pinay nurse was confirmed positive of MERS-Cov in Saudi Arabia. But the other Pinay nurse she came with and whose home in San Jose del Monte, Bulacan she had stayed, along with the family, is tested negative for MERS-CoV.

DOH Secretary Ona also said that the specimen from the Pinay nurse was sent to the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM) for more testing and confirmation. He added that all 249 passengers of Saudi Airlines and those 143 passengers of Cebu Pacific who had contact with the two Pinay nurses were informed and told to undergo examination so that it’ll be known if they’re infected or not. Despite of this incident, the DOH stick to its announcement that the Philippines is still MERS-CoV free.

Once again, the DOH secretary pleaded for Filipino workers or OFWs from the Middle East to have themselves be tested for MERS-CoV and patiently wait for the results to come before going back to the Philippines.

According to CDC or Centers for Disese Control and Prevention, Middle East Respiratory Syndrome or MERS is a viral respiratory illness caused by a coronavirus, thus the name MERS-CoV. People confirmed to have MERS-CoV had developed severe acute respiratory illness, having cough, fever and shortness of breath. Thirty percent of the people with MERS-CoV had reportedly died.

Countries in or near the Arabian Peninsula confirmed with MERS-CoV are Lebanon, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE, Oman and Yemen. While precautions are recommended for its neighboring countries namely Syria, Iraq, Iran, and Israel.

Illegal Recruitment Victims Saved in A Raid by NBI

Posted by:

The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) rescued 15 women in a raid done at a suspected illegal recruitment agency in Malate, Manila.

The women were promised of jobs in the Middle East by the recruitment agency Tuem International Manpower Corp., saying they don’t have to pay any placement fees and other expenses.

NBI Anti-Human Trafficking Division (NBI-AHTRAD) Chief Eric Czar Nuqui said these women, who were from provinces, said that their placement fees were substituted by other fees, which includes accommodation, food and rent.

NBI-AHTRAD Chief Nuqui also added that Tuem International Manpower Corp.’s license with POEA to operate already expired last June.  He said that if ever these women made it to be deployed to in Middle East, they would be undocumented and vulnerable to being human trafficking victims.

But the agency’s officials defended that they were not operating illegally because they were just processing the last batch of their recruits. Gerry Olarte, a company official, denied the accusation made by one girl named Gina, saying that the women were not detained and that all of them are free to come in and out of the agency.

The NBI recovered more than 200 passports in a vault during the raid too, an additional charge on the case to Tuem International Manpower Corp.

 

The government had launched a mobile application that would help in reporting human trafficking activities. Concerned Filipino citizen can now download the 1343 Actionline mobile application on their Android phones and through i-Tunes. This mobile app will be accessible for anyone with the aid of their mobile phones. The mobile app also includes attachment of photos and video for the purpose of evidence on human trafficking cases. The government encourages every Filipino to download the 1343 Actionline mobile app to their mobile devices to help combat human trafficking in the Philippines.
