AM I QUALIFIED? Joel Junsay asks as he tries to process his papers to qualify for the PHP100,000 the national government could give to medical health care workers who recovered from the coronavirus disease (Covdi-19).

Junsay was also the first Baguio case to come out in the open to facilitate contact tracing.

The Department of Health in the Cordillera Administrative Region (DOH-CAR) on Tuesday said only one of the 20 medical health care front line workers who was afflicted with the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) is eligible to the PHP100,000 financial assistance of the government.

"There is only one who qualifies. When I called the infectious disease center at the BGH (Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center), mild cases sila (they have mild cases)," said Dr. Amelita Pangilinan, DOH-CAR regional director in a press conference.

She said the beneficiary was already able to get the PHP100,000 last Saturday.

The beneficiary, who has a heart problem was classified as a "critical case" because his illnesses were aggravated while he was suffering from Covid-19, which made the person eligible for the assistance of the government.

"This is a continuing benefit," Pangilinan said.
