OFWs advised to take precautionary measures vs MERS-CoV

Vice President and Presidential Adviser for Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) concerns Jejomar C. Binay called Filipinos in the Middle East to take precautionary measures against the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome- Corona Virus (MERS-CoV).

“I urge our OFWs in the Middle East to follow the steps prescribed by the DOH. These are easy enough and should go a long way in preventing infection,” Binay said.

The Vice President also urged Filipinos in the region not to panic and confirm reports about the virus with Philippine officials in their area.

“The World Health Organization (WHO) has not yet declared that there is a MERS-CoV outbreak or epidemic, so there is no cause for panic. If rumors start to circulate, the best thing to do is to ask your respective embassies or consulates,” he added.

According to the WHO, the virus appears to be circulating widely throughout the Arabian Peninsula. Other countries outside the Arabian Peninsula that have reported cases of MERS include France, Germany, Greece, Italy, and the United Kingdom (Europe); Tunisia and Egypt (Africa); Malaysia and the Philippines (Asia); and in the United States of America.

The number of confirmed cases worldwide is recorded at 243, including three deaths. (OVP/WHO/RJB/JEG/PIA-NCR)

Placement Agency Faces Suspension for Overcharging of Placement Fees

A placement agency faces suspension after an overseas Filipino worker it deployed to Hong Kong suffered several abuses at the hands of her employer.

The Department of Labor and Employment said this as its agencies reassured the OFW, Rowena Uychiat, of assistance to her and her family in the Philippines.

DOLE Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz assured Uychiat's family the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration and the Philippine Overseas Labor Office in Hong Kong will help her file a complaint against NAR Training and Management Service for making Uychiat pay P45,000 in placement fee.

Baldoz also directed the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration to file a case against a certain Joy of NAR Training and Management Service for deducting P5,000 from the loan proceeds allegedly as processing fee.

On the other hand, the DOLE is also eyeing actions against Nittan Capital Finance Inc., where Uychiat contracted a P50,000 loan to pay the placement fee.

Earlier, Philippine Labor Attache to Hong Kong Manuel Roldan said the POLO has blacklisted Uychiat's employer, Yui Anna Hoi Yin.

"This means Yui Anna Hoi Yin cannot hire another worker unless police investigation shows otherwise. The POLO will not process any contract document which the employer will present as a pre-requisite to visa issuance," Roldan said.

Uychiat, a widow, has a 19-year old daughter Justine, who is taking up criminology at Bago City College. She also has a 13-year old son, Ryan

P10K Livelihood Assistance For Overseas Filipino Workers In WV

Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in Western Visayas who applied for the P10K livelihood Assistance Program of the National Reintegration Center for OFWs (NRCO) can now claim their checks at the provincial offices of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) in their respective areas.

Bernard Sibay, Regional OFW Integration Officer of NCRO here in Region 6 said 45 applications for the P10K livelihood Assistance Program have been approved amounting to P450,000.00 and the checks are now downloaded to the DOLE provincial offices for release.

To date, 19 beneficiaries have already claimed their checks of which five received theirs from DOLE Undersecretary Ciriaco Lagunzad during his recent visit to Iloilo City.

Based on the NRCO 6 data, OFWs from the province of Negros Occidental whose applications were approved and have to claim their checks yet are: Ramile Combite, Ressia Bentic, Richard Bautista, Mark Ermeo, Ronabe Mancia, Maritess Atido, Cherryl Anatan, Rodelyn Jane Morales, Maritess Tipon, Susie Espina and Lolita Bacharo.

In the province of Iloilo, approved applicants who also have to claim their checks are: Connie Chavez, Wilma Cataloctocan, Mary Jane Jegonia, Daisy Matrata and Rey Anthony Mosquito.

The following OFWs are also advised to visit their respective DOLE provincial offices: Mary Ann de la Cruz, Imelda Andrade, Rosy Obidos and Nancy Ramirez of Capiz; Presy Maravilla, Josephine Olegario, Mary Jean Mombay; Roberto Amboyoc and Jeffrey Samillano, of Antique; and Meljane Cabanero of Guimaras.

For OFW beneficiaries who are now in Manila or in other areas, Sibay said, they have to execute a special power of attorney that authorizes their representatives to claim their checks on their behalf.

Under the P10K Livelihood Assistance Program, OFW returnees who are distressed, displaced, undocumented including their immediate families and dependents can avail of the assistance for them to start or enhance their existing livelihood undertakings and eventually become self sufficient.

Sibay said if beneficiaries manage their businesses well they could also avail additional development support from the P2 Billion Reintegration Program, a special loan program launched by President Benigno Aquino and implemented by the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration in partnership with Development Bank of the Philippines and the Land Bank of the Philippines.

DOH cites OFW for heeding MERS-CoV alert

The Department of Health-6 said the OFW from Jeddah Saudi Arabia who sought consultation here after feeling feverish is a model for others in heeding the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome-Corona Virus (MERS-CoV) alert.

Dr. Glen Alonsabe, DOH regional epidemiologist, said that the OFW, a female nurse, went to the Iloilo Doctors’ Hospital and later was placed on quarantine in government facility at the Western Visayas Medical Center for swab tests to be confirmed by the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine, in two or three days.

Alonsabe said in a radio interview that the nurse was recently declared negative of the virus, as confirmed in the results of the swab test.

“The feverish feeling may be due to changes in the weather,” Alonsabe opined.

Earlier, Alonsabe appealed to the public to stop MERS-CoV scare through circulation of unverified text messages which followed news of the OFW’s seeking consultation.

He warned that rumors could harm a person’s reputation, so the DOH is working to verify all information, and is open to queries.

“So far, there is no confirmed positive case of MERS-CoV in Western Visayas, but this should not leave us complacent,” Alonsave said.

He added that all Ilonggo passengers of Etihad Airlines flight EY 0424 that arrived in the country on April 15, were negative for the virus.

MERS-CoV is a communicable disease which may be passed on to another through close contact with a person tested positive.

Other than fever, the symptoms may include coughing, sneezing, and runny nose after two weeks of exposure.

DOH still recommends personal hygiene, hand washing and covering of mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing. (ESS/PIA-Iloilo)

Former OFW beheads own mother in Iloilo

A former overseas Filipino worker beheaded his own mother while suffering a nervous breakdown in Iloilo province, a radio report said Thursday.

The incident occurred in Barangay Bonbon in Lambunao town in Iloilo, Bombo Radyo reported.

Barangay chairman Rolando Araceli was quoted in the report as saying the suspect, whose name his relatives withheld, attacked his mother Erlinda Liderato, 65.

He described the suspect as kind and obedient before the breakdown, adding the suspect even worked abroad.

Liderato's body was found outside her house, with the severed head placed on top of it.

An initial investigation showed that before Liderato's remains were found, the suspect hacked her on the shoulder but she managed to get out of the house to call for help.

When the suspect's sister arrived later, she saw blood on the suspect's short pants and called local barangay officials for help.

The suspect was confined in his hut and authorities are making arrangements to bring him to a mental hospital.
