Quarantine jeep in Baguio delivers residents to the market

Isang tsuper mula Baguio City ang naghahatid ng mga residente papunta sa market ng lungsod gamit ang kaniyang jeep kung saan nasusunod ang physical distancing.

Ayon kay Ariel Amino, naisip niyang bawasan na ang bilang ng mga pasaherong sinasakay sa kaniyang jeep at gumamit ng plastik bilang divider para mapaghiwa-hiwalay ang mga upuan.

Ang mga opisyal ng Barangay Dontogan umano ang nakaisip ng paggamit sa mga binansagang "quarantine jeep," gaya ng kay Amino, para hindi na mahirapan ang mga taga-Baguio na maglakad ng mahahabang distansiya para lang makapamili ng pagkain at iba pang pangangailangan.

"Tinawagan po kami ng barangay para tumulong sa paghakot ng mga residente para pumunta ng market kasi nahirapan talaga sila, wala silang masakyan," ani Amino sa panayam ng radyo DZMM.

"Naisip po namin 'yon ng pamilya ko na lagyan ng harang para at least ma-maintain 'yong distance," dagdag niya.

Kung dati ay 23 tao ang kayang isakay ng jeep ni Amino, ngayon ay hanggang 11 na lang para mapanatili ang distansiya ng mga pasahero, na pag-iingat na rin laban sa pagkalat ng coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

Point-to-point umano ang biyahe na nagsisimula sa Barangay Dontogan hanggang sa city market, na may pasaheng P20.

"Para naman ma-subsidize 'yong driver kasi 'yong driver nangangailangan din po 'yan," ani Amino.

San Juan Mayor at 30 pa, nilampasan mga checkpoint at triage sa Baguio?

Nilampasan umano ni San Juan Mayor Francis Zamora ang mga checkpoint at COVID-19 testing center sa Lungsod ng Baguio upang dumiretso sa Baguio Country Club.

Nagbitbit din ito ng entourage na 30 katao, ayon sa kumpirmasyon ni Baguio Sumbungan Forums moderator Dr. Clinton Balud.

Sabi ng netizen na si Kim Godeloson, "may instruction na sinabing dumiretso siya (Zamora) ng 'triage' pero hindi ito sumunod."

Dumiretso umano ang alkalde at mga kasama nito sa BCC "para magpasarap."

Pero, wika ni Balud, sinumbong ng club kay Baguio Mayor Benjamin Magalong ang ginawa nina Zamora kaya pinabalik umano ang mga ito sa triage.

Wala pang pahayag si Magalong sa insidente, pero naglabas kahapon si Baguio Police Director PCol. Allen Co ng pabatid.

Wika ni Co, sa Facebook page ng Baguio PIO, epektibo maging sa mga very important person at kapulisan ang kanilang patakarang cross-border checkpoint at paunang triage check sa sinumang papasok sa lungsod.

"This is to reiterate to the public that Baguio City is strictly implementing Cross-Border Checkpoints and initial Triage checks to whoever enters the city regardless of who the person is," ayon kay Co.

"We stress that the same rule applies to all VIPs and PNP members whether they are entering Baguio on their own or serving as an escort or security to somebody."

"Baguio's ace against COVID-19 is its discipline. Its people take the rules to heart. So please do as the Baguioans do: follow our rules even before you get to our place," wika pa nito.

Baguio Canine "microchipping" starts November

Want to give "man's best friend" a bit more protection in case they get lost or stolen?

The mandatory installation of microchip tags on dogs will start this November.

Thus bared City Veterinary and Agriculture Office (CVAO) chief Dr. Bridgit Piok during the City Hall flag-raising program.

She said, installation of microchips is mandatory for pets that are three-months old or over.

The microchip tagging of dogs is pursuant to Ordinance No. 60-2020. It establishes easier ownership tracking of dogs; protection of pets from theft; monitoring schedule of anti-rabies jabs; and, establishing accountability of pet-owners, among others.

The micro tag which rests under the dog's skin holds information on the owner's name, address, contacts, and description of the canine.

It costs P300 per dog and may be administered in barangays during scheduled mass tagging activities or at the CVAO.

A registration certificate shall then be issued after the dog had been microchipped. It is a permanent record that lasts until the dog's lifetime, unless there a change of ownership.

When the dog passes, the owner is required to inform the barangay or CVAO within five days.

In changes of ownership, the new owner must report the same within a period not exceeding ten days. Registration by the new owner costs P250.

Under the ordinance, Piok revealed, absence of the chip on a dog three-months old or over violates Ordinance No. 60-2020. A fine of P2,000 shall be imposed upon the owner.

A fine of P2,000 is likewise imposed upon owners of stray pooches.

She said, any person who releases an impounded dog without it having been micro-tagged or without fees or fines having been paid by the owner shall be fined P1,000, over possible administrative or criminal charges.

The ordinance imposes an impounding fee of P500 per dog; maintenance fee of P50 per dog per day; and, adoption fee of P500 per dog, she added.

Piok disclosed, within three-days, unclaimed dogs at the city pound may be put up for adoption; or, donated for scientific studies; or, put down.

Baguio Boy is Next PNP Chief

UPDATE: Lieutenant General Camilo Cascolan is the next Philippine National Police (PNP) chief, replacing retiring top cop General Archie Gamboa, Interior Secretary Eduardo Año confirmed to Rappler on Tuesday, September 1.

Cascolan is set to retire on November 10 as he reaches the mandatory age of retirement of 56, unless President Rodrigo Duterte decides to extend his term.

Asked about Cascolan's possible short term, Año said the public should not focus on the span of his stint, but the work to be done.

"Matagal pa naman ang 2 months (2 months is still long). We don't think of that yet. There is a lot to be done," he said.

In terms of seniority, Cascolan was next in line to be chief as the deputy chief for administration of the PNP. He belongs to the Philippine Military Academy Sinagtala Class of 1986.

...

Police Lt. Gen. Camilo Pancratius Cascolan will serve as officer-in-charge of the Philippine National Police (PNP) upon the retirement of Gen. Archie Gamboa on Wednesday, Malacañang said Tuesday.

Known by his nickname "Pikoy," Cascolan is also a member of the Philippine Military Academy Class of 1986, to which his two predecessors, Police Generals Gamboa and (now Senator) Ronald de la Rosa also belonged.

A native of Baguio City, he is a product of the Maryknoll Convent School and the University of the Philippines Baguio High School.
