The other day they stopped my dad and asked my mom to get off the bike then proceeds to let her get inside the jeepney that has a lot more people in it. Seriously. .:rolleyes:

Never let common sense interfere with bureaucracy

Great suggestion - thanks - told my neighbor same - again thanks

Makes sense - I need to go to DR, bank, etc, or she needs to go to DR, shopping

 

The fact that each of us will have an unnamed pass never crossed my mind. :rolleyes:

 

Your welcome.

Well, women have different logic...but it might be just you:sarcasm:

hmmm big problem in this particular Barangay - they never get what they should -

We had our third delivery this week of relief packages last night. First was from the governor, second from the municipality, and the latest from the barangay. They're right well organized and show up in a convoy of vehicles with a loudspeaker. They tell you what they're doing, that they will leave the parcels outside your domicile, and to come collect them after they depart. 

The parcels will get a small family through around three days if stretched and while pretty basic they do keep people indoors and away from the shops which are a nexus for infection. The only complaining is about the NFA rice as it's 'smelly'. We're in a rice farming area and luckily the harvest has just come in so there's a big community surplus right now and people are stockpiling the NFA rice as a last resort.

While we don't need the parcels (we have a temporarily closed restaurant, so are quite heavy on stored supplies) it's easier to accept the food (and pass it on to those in need) than it is to inform them otherwise when you're being directed to stay indoors by a loudspeaker.  

All in all, the food distribution system is working well here. Additionally, those enrolled with the  Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) have just gotten between 5k to 8k per family credited to their Land Bank purpose-issued debit cards. Another tranche of similar amount is due to be released in April. Social distancing and hygiene at the local ATM is not ideal but people with children in need are getting government cash in addition to food. Not sure why you need to take a family of eight folks to line up with you at the ATM during a quarantine but that's what's happening..

Additionally, the local RHU (Rural Health Unit) has been exceptional and keeps an outdoor board tally of people in the community who are PUMs. They maintain an active and constantly updated social media presence as well as doing home outreach to the particularly vulnerable.

Overt PNP presence has been less than I expected but I imagine they're doing things behind the scenes that are not not readily apparent. The local CAFGU camp on the other hand is openly active and taking on added responsibilities.

I haven’t seen any of that happening here except for the pic of 2000 DSWD food packs arriving at Masbate port a couple of days ago. Plus, the people in this Barangay have no ATM that they can now get to...sigh...

The word on Masbate streets, so to speak, is that the lockdown will get tighter come Monday. 
 

We suspect that means the vehicle and quarantine passes we already have will no longer get us across the Mobo/Masbate City border and that...will make life interesting...

Could get interesting if cities or barangays don't respect each others' passes :shocked:

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-52059085

China has announced a temporary ban on all foreign visitors, even if they have visas or residence permits.

The country is also limiting Chinese and foreign airlines to one flight per week, and flights must not be more than 75% full.

Although China reported its first locally-transmitted coronavirus case for three days on Friday, almost all its new cases now come from abroad.

There were 55 new cases across China on Thursday - 54 of them from overseas.

 

What are the new rules?

The Chinese Foreign Ministry said it was "suspending the entry of foreign nationals" because of the "rapid spread of Covid-19 across the world". The suspension applies to people with visas and residence passes, but not to diplomats or those with C visas (usually aircraft crew). People with "emergency humanitarian needs" or those working in certain fields can apply for exceptions. Although the rules seem dramatic, many foreign airlines had already stopped flying to China - and a number of cities already had restrictions for arrivals.

Last month, for example, Beijing ordered everyone returning to the city into a 14-day quarantine.

What is the coronavirus situation in China? Although the virus emerged in China, it now has fewer cases than the US and fewer deaths than Italy and Spain.

There have been 81,340 confirmed cases in China and 3,292 deaths, the National Health Commission said on Friday.

In total, 565 of those confirmed cases were classed as "imported" - either foreigners coming into China, or returning Chinese nationals.

In Hubei - the province where the outbreak began - there were no new confirmed or suspected cases on Thursday.

The lockdown in provincial capital Wuhan, which began in January, will be eased on 8 April.
