Sen. Pimentel, Humingi ng Pang-Unawa sa Kabila ng Paglabag sa Quarantine Protocol

Published

on

Senator Koko Pimentel is currently in hot water after disobeying the protocol as a person under investigation. The senator accompanied his pregnant wife to Makati Medical Center on Wednesday, March 25, despite the fact that he’s likely to have the dreaded virus. In the hospital, the senator tested positive for coronavirus.

In an official statement, MMC medical director Dr. Saturnino Javier denounced the senator’s action, which allegedly ‘added to the burden’ of the medical staff. Dr. Javier claimed that Pimentel was ‘irresponsible and reckless,’ for disobeying protocol and possibly putting the people around him at risk.

“We denounce the irresponsible and reckless action of the senator. He added to the burden of a hospital trying to respond in its most competent and aggressive manner to cope with the daunting challenges of this COVID-19 outbreak.”

The MMC medical director did not mince his words as he criticized the senator. According to Dr. Javier, since the senator entered their premises, they had to decontaminate and disinfect the MMC delivery room. Their exposed staff were also scheduled for quarantine, thereby reducing their already-short staff.

“His admonition for everyone to observe social distancing, enhanced community quarantine measures, washing of hands, and personal hygiene are nothing but empty rhetoric because he himself violated all of those.”

On the other hand, the senator defended himself and asked for understanding from the people.

“Humihingi na lang po siguro ako ng understanding. Siyempre kahit sino namang tao, ama ay magiging excited. Hindi ko naman po alam. Nag-disinfect naman ang ospital so tama naman po ‘yong ginawa nila. Umalis agad ako sa ospital, that is my duty.”

Delivery Driver, Nadiskubre ang Drogang Laman ng Kahina-Hinalang Package na Pinadala sa Kanya

Published

on

A delivery rider who received a suspicious package found out that it contains illegal substance. The rider, who is only identified as “Richard,” had the presence of mind to open the suspicious package. According to his statements, he received a booking from a customer in Caloocan City, who was supposed to send a cellphone holder in San Jose del Monte, Bulacan.

When the sender handed him the item, Richard immediately grew suspicious because the shopping bag contained shorts, but the declared package was a cellphone holder. And unlike most costumers who discuss details with their rider, the said customer immediately left and did not even bother to talk with Richard.

The delivery rider stopped at a gasoline station to inspect the package. Much to his shock, he discovered two sanitary napkins inside the shorts. When he opened the napkins, Richard found two sachets with suspicious looking substance, which is suspected to be methamphetamine or ‘shabu.’

“Pag-abot niya po sa akin sabay alis, dun po talaga ako nagduda dahil po first time na mangyari sa akin. Naghahanap-buhay po ako ng marangal, tapos hahaluan pa rin ng katarantaduhan. Paano kung sa akin po nahuli ‘yun?” says the delivery rider during his exclusive interview with GMA News.

He immediately contacted his brother, who is a policeman. He advised him to go straight to San Jose del Monte police and report the incident. The authorities immediately conducted an entrapment operation and arrested two women who were listed as the recipients of the package, one of which just gave birth recently.

The suspects denied any involvement or knowledge in the possible drug trafficking. According to the women, they were only instructed to accept the package in exchange of P500. However, they claimed that they did not know what it contains. Both women tested positive in the drug test.
