Why is this Kabayan MPS personnel carrying a baby?

When the Tiongsan Rolling store came into our Municipality, residents took the opportunity to purchase their neccesities and provisions and the Kabayan MPS personnel conducted police presence in order to remind the customers to maintain public health standards and provided security assistance as well.

It was during this time that PCpl Nimfa B Camis spotted a mother carrying her baby who wished to purchase her groceries.

Upon interviewing the mother why she brought the baby with her as it is not supposed to be considering our current situation, she narrated her circumstance and condition.

PCpl Nimfa B Camis offered to carry the baby instead until the mother finished procuring her needs.

Mummy Coffins confined in Safe Dry Caves in Timbac, Kabayan

Mummification is one of the traditional practices of the people of Benguet Province in preserving their dead. It is performed mainly by the Ibaloy tribe particularly in the Municipality of Kabayan where the mummies were discovered.

The well preserved human mummies were found in caves at Timbac, Bangao, Tinongchol, Naapay and Opdas all in Kabayan. These mummies were believed to be rediscovered in the early 1900s.

Governor Melchor Diclas on Friday said they are now ready to receive overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) returning to the province.

"We will prepare for them, they are our own people, we will take them in," he said.

Diclas said they have been sending two vans every Tuesdays and Fridays in Metro Manila and elsewhere to fetch returning OFWs and locally stranded individuals (LSI) since April.

As of May 28, there were already 140 OFWs and 131 LSIs who have been fetched by the provincial government.

Upon their arrival in Baguio City, they were brought for triage before bringing them to Teachers Camp, the quarantine facility of Baguio, Benguet and Mountain Province.

The LSIs, on the other hand, were brought to the quarantine facility at Wangal here.

"If they have health declarations and have completed the 14-day quarantine and at the triage, they are well and do not show any signs and symptoms of the Covid-19, then they are led to the facility where they will be fetched by their respective municipal governments and brought to their homes," Diclas said, noting they are coordinating with municipal officials.

"If they are positive, let them heal, if they are negative, let them go home," he added.

Diclas appealed to the people of Benguet not to discriminate against the returning OFWs.

He said that the provincial government can assist the OFWs and LSIs as they register via the website of the provincial government.

"We assist them in terms of permits and the requirements then fetches them where they are," Diclas said.

The national government has announced that some 40,000 more OFWs are expected to arrive in the country.

"We will accept them, subject them to the protocols, and will have them go through a 14-day quarantine in a medical facility or at their villages, depending on their condition," Diclas said. (With reports from Zedrick John Patil-ao/ PNA)
