ADVISORY ON H1N1

Filipinos that are traveling to India should take the necessary precautions by avoiding crowded places and refraining from going to states in India with high cases of H1N1 infection. Whenever possible, travel to India should be avoided or postponed to a later date when the situation has normalized, especially for young children, old people, or those whose immune system has been compromised.

ADVISORY ON THE PREVENTION OF MERS-COV INFECTION

  1. Always practice proper hand hygiene by washing your hands with soap, or hand rubs with alcohol. Do this before and after eating, before and after handling, cooking and preparing food, after coughing, sneezing and using the toilets, and before and before and after touching animals.
  1. Practice proper cough etiquette by covering your mouth and nose while sneezing or coughing. Use a facial tissue when coughing or sneezing, and cover your mouth and nose with it. Dispose the tissue in a waste basket.
  1. Avoid contact with farm and domesticated animals, including camels.
  1. Avoid contact with the sick. If you have respiratory illness, stay at home and wear a surgical mask to protect your family members.
  1. If you are a health worker, strictly follow infection control protocols at your workplace.
  1. Visit your doctor, a hospital or health facility at the soonest possible time if symptoms of MERS-COV manifest itself. See the Official Gazette’s infographic on the symptoms of MERS COV: http://www.gov.ph/2014/04/22/infoqraphic-advisory-on-mers-cov/

OFW ONLINE REGISTRATION SYSTEM

Ito ay gagamitin lamang sa pag-abiso sa mga panahon ng krisis o emergency. Dahil sa sitwasyon ng seguridad sa Iraq, hinihikayat ang lahat ng Pilipino sa Iraq na mag-register. Ang mga ditalyeng ito ay mananatiling pribado at gagamitin lamang ng Embahada sa opisyal na paraan. Paki-click lamang ito upang makapunta sa registration page.

ABISO SA LAHAT NG PILIPINO

Dapat ipagpatuloy ng lahat ng Pilipino sa Iraq ang matinding pag-iingat kapag naglalakbay at limitahan ang kanilang mga hindi mahalagang paglalakbay sa labas ng kanilang mga bahay at lugar ng trabaho.

Ang lahat ng mga Pilipino ay hindi pinapayagan na magtrabaho o maglakbay sa “No-Go” Zones sa Iraq (Salahudin, Anbar, Ninevah, at Kirkuk). Ipinagbabawal ang pag-deploy sa Iraq ng mga domestic helper na Pilipino.

Sa ngayon, nananatiling nasa Alert Level 4 (Sapilitang Paglikas), ang lahat ng Pilipino sa Iraq maliban sa Kurdistan Region (Dohuk, Erbil, and Sulaimaniyah) na nasa Alert Level 2.

IMPORTANT URGENT REMINDER

Sa lahat ng mga Pilipino sa Iraq, nireremind ho kayo na iwasang pumunta o magtrabaho sa mga sumusunod na “no-go” zone provinces na noon pa nideklara ng gobyerno ng Pilipinas na delikado sa sinumang Pilipino:

  1. S- Salahuddin
  2. A- Anbar
  3. N- Nineveh
  4. K- Kirkuk

Itong SANK provinces ay iwasan. Sobrang mapanganib ang mga lugar na ito.Sinumang Pilipino na nasa SANK provinces ay nasa malaking panganib at naghahanap lamang ng problema sa sarili. Mahihirapan din silang matulungan o ma-rescue ng Embahada dahil ang mga taga-Embahada mesmo ay bawal ding pumasok sa mga SANK provinces dala ng sobrang mapanganib sa buhay ang mga lugar ng SANK.

Hindi rin po pinapayagang magtrabaho sa buong Iraq ang Pilipino bilang kasambahay o “domestic helper” (DH). Tinuturing na isang illegal worker ang sinumang Pilipino na magtatrabaho o nagtatrabaho sa Iraq bilang DH.

Sumunod po tayo lagi sa mga patakaran para na rin po sa ating kapakanan.Maraming salamat po.
