I look at the tracker (https://ncovtracker.doh.gov.ph/) regularly - particularly interested to see if there are any cases in Ormoc as wife's friend has indicated they have some there...

Can anyone explain the "Confirmed Cases by Residence" ?

Every time I look at it it says more or less the same thing... always 44% cases "For validation"... does that mean they don't know the residence/location of 44% of the cases or what?

How can they have a case but not know where the person was tested and why are there so many unknowns?

I believe "For validation" means just that, they don't have or bothered to update the information. But the case they have in Cebu Chong Hua hospital has already recovered and released from the hospital although its still there "For validation". The website seems to have removed the info on which case died and recovered. PUIs are under investigation (in hospitals) PUM's are tested but are allowed to self-quarantine at home.

Well, now that you guys are presumably fully stocked up can we assume you'll do the sociably responsible thing and stay home now?  

Only a real jack-ass would venture out every few days to have a look around and buy a few sundries just because they can. The government, common sense, and moral duty require you to isolate yourselves like most of the planet is doing.

Can't imagine any of us in the Philippines and on this forum could possibly be unprepared at this late stage for an extended stay at home.

Hope not to see any more shopping reports.

Updating a thousand lines on a spreadsheet to feed the tracker-model would take someone about an hour a day at most.

Not good news for you guys in Cebu

https://www.rappler.com/nation/256229-16-positive-coronavirus-cases-confirmed-in-cebu-city

 

Not good news for us in Baybay either as people are still arriving here on the Roble.

In that article, it states, "...the local lab has a capacity of testing 20-25 per day." (at V. Sotto). Is this for real? Max 25 tests/day and it's the only testing center in Cebu City? And they just received 20,000 tests.

A little quick math tells us that it'd take 800 days (2 yrs+) to test 20k ppl.

Meanwhile S. Korea has a daily testing capacity of 15,000 people. 

Am I missing something or read the article incorrectly?

4K Filipino crew members to arrive in PH amid Covid-19 crisis

By Joyce Ann L. Rocamora March 28, 2020, 7:31 pm

MANILA – Over 4,000 Filipinos are set to arrive home in the next three weeks as cruise lines bear the brunt coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) crisis.

"4000+ repatriated Filipino crew to arrive in the next three weeks. 530 from Costa (Favolosa) and Costa Magica arrive tomorrow," Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin, Jr. said Saturday in a tweet.

He, however, noted concerns on the scheduled repatriation with the need to quarantine the arriving Filipinos and the number of available facilities to accommodate them.

In a series of tweets, Locsin said "while DOT (Department of Tourism) has a list of accommodations, the OWWA (Overseas Workers Welfare Administration) of DOLE (Department of Labor and Employment) must approve the items in the list; however, OWWA says it cannot approve the DOT list unless the DOH first approves the list. The DOH says that the rooms must qualify as individual isolation wards with room service so there is no mingling just in case some are Covid."

Foreign Affairs Assistant Secretary Eduardo Menez said the New Clark City "still has the Grand Princess crew" who are currently under quarantine after their arrival in the Philippines on March 16.

"There is a selection and clearing process that is overseen by the DOH (Department of Health) in coordination with the manning agency. There are several considerations taken into account," he noted.

Meanwhile, the DOT said it will assist the OWWA in finding accommodations for repatriated overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), citing that "distressed OFWs" is qualified to be billeted by hotels and similar establishments operating during the enhanced community quarantine.

The said establishments, however, must abide by the conditions for room occupancy, as coordinated with the DOH and approved by the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID), which directs that "OFWs and Health Workers shall be accommodated in single occupancy rooms. Only one person shall be accommodated in each room". (PNA).

New York Governor Cuomo Daily Briefing:

Everything we do now (procure ventilators etc) is in preparation for possible apex (when curve hits the highest point)

Apex in New York is estimated in 14-21 days from now

We'll keep COVID-19 patients separated from the other patients in hospitals

We can now test for antibodies to determine whether a person had COVID-19. This is a blood test

172 new ICU admission in the last day, vs. 374  in the preceding day, may indicate a decline in the growth rate

155,934 people tested in New York State

We need a faster testing process. Can't wait 5 days as it is now. Other countries now also have home tests. We should do the same

Starting on Saturday, March 28, China is closing its borders to foreigners to protect its citizens from a potential second wave of infections [source]. Almost all new recent cases in China were imported from abroad

I heard our local Prince Grocery would start a delivery service...not sure how or when but that would solve a lot of problems. They seem to be stocked well enough which to me looks like there is no shortage on receiving supply.

There have been no tests available. They can't 'confirm' without the tests.

They just sent 10K test kits to the Visayan's other than Cebu so you may see a spike in confirmed cases when some of these start coming back.
