DAVAO DEL NORTE: Fear of Covid-19 scares off diarrhea outbreak victims from getting hospital treatment

Cases are on the rise in Barangay Tulalian as residents with severe conditions are hesitant to be hospitalized over fear of getting COVID-19

SANTO TOMAS, Davao del Norte (July 18, 2021)—The spurt of diarrhea cases that hit Barangay Tulalian was rising as the municipal government of Santo Tomas logged 124 fresh cases over the weekend, bringing in the total number of diarrhea cases to 295 as of Saturday, July 17.

Municipal Health Officer Dr. June Lim said that residents who fell ill with diarrhea have been forced to leave their homes and decided only to get treatment when their conditions continued to deteriorate.

“Nidaghan ang patients nato kay karon lang sila nigawas sa ilahang mga balay para magpatambal. Napugos na sila adto diri sa makeshift treatment facility kay dehydrated naman sila. Mao na ang rason na padayon ang pagtaas sa mga residente naigo sa diarrhea,” Lim said.

Lim said that sick patients opted to stay home because they’re hesitant to be sent in a hospital over fear that either they would get or be diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing COVID-19.

“Nahadlok sila magadto diri kay ang uban dili sila gusto magpa admit sa hospital kay basig matagdan sila og COVID-19 o i-declare sila na COVID-19 positive. Mao kana ang rason nganong ingon ana ang volume sa patients na atong gitabangan,” Lim said.

124 cases

On Saturday, July 17, the Municipal Health Office (MHO) recorded 124 new cases after residents swarmed the makeshift medical treatment facility installed in the Barangay Tulalian’s covered court

Of the 124 new diarrhea patients, two were children, aged between 0 to 11 month, 20 were children, aged between 1 to 5 years old, 19 were children aged between 6 to 15 years old, 30 were adults, aged between 16 to 25 years old, 28 were adults, aged between 26 to 40 years old, and 25 were adults, aged 40 years old and above.

18 admitted patients

Fifteen patients were admitted at the Metropolitan Community Hospital, eight patients admitted at Estela Medical Clinic, 15 patients were admitted at Rivera Medical Center Inc., and 14 patients were admitted at Matutes Medical Clinic.

COVID-19 diarrhea?

But on Sunday, July 18, the MHO said that 11 patients who fell ill with diarrhea did not have the symptom of dehydration. This prompted the Provincial Health Office of Davao del Norte to recommend that patients should be subjected to a reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) to rule out “COVID-19 diarrhea.”

“Mao kini ang development karong adlaw. Pipila ka mga pasyente naay diarrhea pero walay dehydration. Ang advise gikan sa PHO tanang patients na symptomatic ug severe ipailalom sa RT-PCR Test para ma rule out na ang diarrhea na nasinati sa uban ay possible hinungdan ay COVID-19,” Lim said.

The 11 patients registered on Sunday was not yet included in the latest case tally submitted to the PHO as this was a developing scenario happening on the ground

. But Lim said that as early as now, the Santo Tomas LGU is taking a more progressive measures to contain the outbreak in the community such as the strict enforcement of COVID-19 Safety Protocols with Barangay Tulalian COVID-19 Task Force leading the campaign in the community.

Enforcement of protocols

As this developed, Mayor Ernesto Evangelista urged the Barangay Tulalian officials to complement the efforts of the Santo Tomas LGU in the ground as the municipal government is facing health issues in two fronts: the diarrhea outbreak and COVID-19 pandemic.

“Manawagan ko sa tanang opisyales, purok leaders sa Barangay Tulalian na magtinabangay kitang tanan. Dili kita magkompyansa kay duha ka problema atong ginasubang karon ang diarrhea ug ang COVID-19. Naa naman development sa ground na and hinungdan sa diarrhea sa uban kay COVID-19 tungod wala man sila nasinati na dehydration,” Evangelista said.

Evangelista also reminded the Barangay Tulalian residents to boil their drinking water to avoid water-borne diseases. The Santo Tomas LGU, he said, began rationing potable water and tap water for household use in the village since Saturday.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Meanwhile, Municipal Administrator Atty. Elisa Evangelista-Lapiña earlier requested business entrepreneur Mr. Alfonso Mascardo of AquaPure to provide potable water to Barangay Tulalian to prevent a diarrhea outbreak.TADECO’s medical facility also accommodated patients who fell ill with diarrhea, according to Lapiña.

Davao del Norte Governor Edwin Jubahib, and the 2nd District Congresman Alan Dujali also provided medicines, bottled water, and other medical and health support for the patients and the medical personnel who were on the frontline of giving health and sanitation services.

Lapiña thanked Governor Jubahib and Congressman Dujali, AquaPure and TADECO for the assistance and support they extended to the efforts and response of the Santo Tomas LGU in dealing with the diarrhea outbreak.

Ongoing probe

Charlemagne Fernandez, the MHO Administrator, said the Santo Tomas LGU and the MHO began its investigation to determine what caused the outbreak. But the Environment Sanitation Report from the MHO revealed that the water system source in the area was possibly contaminated because of the water’s poor quality due to poor chlorine disinfection.

Such finding was based on the ocular inspection conducted by the Sanitation Team and random interviews with the Tulalian Water Association (TUWASA) personnel.

Fernandez, however, said the result of the initial probe is not yet conclusive as the official result of the microbiological water analysis is expected to be released on Monday, July 19. Apart from this, Fernandez said the MHO was also waiting for the results of the 15 patients who were subjected to rectal swabbing that would help them determine the bacteria in the patients’ feces.

Timeline

On Wednesday, July 14, three Barangay Tulalian residents sought medical help in the MHO after they complained of experiencing loose bowel movement, stomach pain and vomiting, the usual symptoms of diarrhea.From three, 16 others visited the MHO the following day Thursday; alarmed with the influx of patients, the MHO immediately visited the barangay and found out that other residents reportedly fell ill with suspected diarrhea believed to have been caused by contaminated drinking water.

As early as Thursday, the MHO had assisted the patients who fell ill as some were recommended for admissions in hospitals for treatment.

The MHO informed Municipal Administrator Atty. Elisa Evangelista-Lapiña about the developing case in Barangay Tulalian.

This prompted her to take immediate action to save lives and prevent the spread of the diarrhea in the community.

Lapiña said that the Punong Barangay Jeronimo Gumanid Jr. informed her of the situation only Thursday evening when cases were already surging.

Intervention

Upon instruction of Mayor Ernesto Evangelista, Municipal Administrator Atty. Elisa Evangelista-Lapiña went immediately to the area early Friday, July 16 and brought the QRT personnel from the Municipal Health Office to assess the situation and provide the needed assistance to the affected community.

Lapiña said the Santo Tomas LGU provided potable water, installed a makeshift treatment facility in Barangay Tulalian covered court, meals, and other medical support to patients complaining of severe diarrhea.

The Santo Tomas LGU also provided new water containers and water-purification chemicals to the affected areas while residents have been briefed about cleaning their surroundings and maintaining proper sanitation to prevent another outbreak.

“Padayon ang atong pagmonitor sa sitwasyon para masigurado nato na walay na madugang na biktima,” Lapiña said.

To avoid future outbreaks, Lapiña urged the Barangay Tulalian to sit down with TUWASA to discuss on how to improve the water supply in the barangay. She added that the Santo Tomas LGU is readily available to guide and improve water services delivery in the area.

FLOOD-STRICKEN DAVAO DEL NORTE RESIDENTS GET FOOD AID

Residents of Barangay Salvacion inSanto Tomas in Davao del Norte have received immediately their food packs from the Municipal Government of Santo Tomas through the auspices of the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office (MSWDO) after Mayor Ernesto Evangelista learned that a flooding occurred in three puroks of the said barangay.

Low-lying portions of Barangay Salvacion were among the affected areas after rainfall and water from the higher parts of the province trickled down and swelled the nearby river.

FEATURE: Eliza Evangelista Lapina: From fighting communist rebels to promoting good governance

If pushing for good governance in Santo Tomas town in Davao del Norte is an easy job for lawyer Eliza Evangelista-Lavina, this is because she used to come from a place where many people fear to tread.

Before being named as Municipal Administrator of Sto. Tomas munipality, Evangelista Lapinaplayed a key role in a special body aiming to drive away communist rebels in Davao City’s highland district of Paquibato, by bringing government closer to the people.

PEACE 911 formed by Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte brought basic government services to the epicenter of the communist insurgency in the tri-boundaries of Davao Region-Bukidnon-Cotabato area.

As Peace 911 Focal Person, Eliza Evangelista Lapina coordinated a monthly caravan of city agencies bringing health, agriculture, legal, social, education, cooperatives, civil registry, land transportation and other basic services to 14 barangays of the mountainous district. Peace 811 also enhanced community peace with presence of police and military which also engaged in road repair and construction.

Sto. Tomas town is lucky to have Eliza Evangelista-Lapina helping her father, Mayor Ernesto “Tatay Erning” Evangelista , in steering the town to progress and development through good governance.

On September 16, 2019, the young lady lawyer was named as Municipal Administrator of Sto. Tomas. She was this time at the forefront of a new war—not of the communist insurgency—but ridding the municipal government’s bureaucracy of “corruption and malpractices.”

Attorney Elai

Fondly called as “Attorney Elay,” Elisa, as the chief administrative officer, will coordinate, lead and direct the department heads, officers and employees in the administration of the municipality in accordance with the policies and plans approved and established by the local chief executive.

PEACE 911

Administrating the affairs of the municipality is a managerial skill that Lapina is adept at.

During her stint as the Peace 911’s head, she has proven herself not just a hands-on leader but also good at coordinating, and working both with the masses and government agencies.

Peace 911 was implemented in Davao City in compliance to President Rodrigo Duterte’s Executive Order 70 or the Whole of Nation Approach in Attaining Inclusive and Sustainable Peace.

The success of Peace 911—its principles and mechanisms—is now seen as a template to implement EO 70 and replicate the best practices of the peace and development initiative across the country.

Corrupt-free governance

Like her mayor-father, Elisa takes the job seriously. It took her several months to decide and vacate her post as the Peace 911 focal person under the leadership of Presidential daughter and Davao City Mayor Sara “Inday” Duterte.“

It takes a lot of discernment to leave a job that I am passionate about. But my decision to help and join in the administration of Tatay Erning is perhaps my response to a higher calling of public service.

It is a tough job, really,” Lapina, a peace and rights advocate, said.

When asked what prompted her to resign as Peace 911 focal person, Elisa said she wants to help her mayor-father lead a “corrupt-free” governance while giving the constituents of Santo Tomas the services they had long been deserved.

“My father wants to leave a legacy of corrupt-free governance. Of course, we don’t do it overnight or by Thano’s snap. Removing corruption in the bureaucracy is a painstaking step to begin with. But it has to be done,” she said.

“My father wants to leave a legacy of corrupt-free governance. Of course, we don’t do it overnight or by Thano’s snap. Removing corruption in the bureaucracy is a painstaking step to begin with.

But it has to be done,” she said. She would later confirm cases of corruption involving some municipal officials and admit that it would take time to do more intelligence gathering to build up cases against them.

“Not under my father’s term,” she warned, adding that malpractices performed by municipal officials and conduct unbecoming by wayward employees must be fixed to allow the delivery of public services unhampered.

“I think the message is clear and that is we need to exact a high and exacting standards of honesty in public service. Tatay Erning’s political will to stamp out corruption in the municipal government’s bureaucracy remains resolute,” Elisa said.

Unseen hand

While critics of her mayor-father say that she’s the “unseen hand” behind the major revamp in terms of the structure, assignments and affairs in the municipal government, Elisa, with equal bravado, said:

“Let them rant ‘till Kingdom come. They are entitled to their opinion, anyway.”She described the changes his mayor-father implemented since he took his office as the town mayor last July 1 as nothing but “compliance to all the law.”“We only corrected what needs to be corrected. It is expected that along the process, some will squeak because the new bureaucracy won’t favor them,” she said. New brand of public service

What inspired her perhaps was her motivation to render a new brand of public service emanating from her mayor-father’s politics of performance. “A government that is sensitive to the needs of people.

is what drives me and motivates me each day,” she said. “The people of Santo Tomas should feel that the government is working for them,” she said. Prior to her assumption as the municipal administrator, Lapina spent 20 years in the government service.

She was designated by Presidential Daughter and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte as one of the members of Davao City Advisory Committee on Peace and Development until appointed to be the focal person of Davao City’s Peace 911.

She worked as a Computer Programmer back in 1999 in the local government unit of Davao.

She completed her Masters degree in Business Administration (MBA) at the University of Mindanao as a working student

Shen then pursued Bachelor of Law and passed the Bar exam in 2012. In 2012, Lapina was appointed as Attorney IV in the City Legal office by then Mayor and now President Rodrigo Roa Duterte.
