    all these are pre elections lang and dirty jabs on opposition, who ever has the most points wins all,

    matira matibay, lets see who is the dirtiest of all in position, IMHO pare-pareho lang sila, you dont really need to help the Philippines by into the politics, you can't help if you are in politics, isn't it?

    what if Lacson etc just give their ads money instead of TV ads and internet exposures spending?

    For me, it can be helped. They are not all the same and if I have to choose, I'll always choose the lesser evil. This administration's reign has been marred by an unprecedented level of corruption, incompetence and lack of accountability.

    The shameless impunity of those surrounding pimple nose. This Pharmally scam eclipses the Napoles scam because of the degree of greed and manipulations. Corruption is an enterprise in this regime.

    ^^^And yet, there are those who swear the president and his team are doing the best he can, and a better job than anyone else could. Makes you wonder what alternate reality they live in.

    Mm…unfortunately, I seriously doubt the Ombudsman will take action once the Senate committee report is finalized and forwarded. Same with the justice dept. unless a different administration takes over in 2022. As erap once said weder weder lang yan.

    BTT, received my 2nd Pfizer shot at Quirino drive thru. Rainy. Took 40 minutes as there were 6 cars ahead of me.

    This should have been the template for all major cities nationwide to ease the strain on the hospital system as infection surges occured. Daming pera. Sinayang lang sa mga overpriced PPEs.

    EDSA Carousel is back.
    Free bus ride.
    Free MRT ride for APORS too.

    Little things we commuters appreciate during this pandemic...

    I believe they only started the registration, but they still do not allow vaccines to be given to those less than 18 years old.

    The guidelines for the new Alert Level system to replace the ECQ/GCQ have been released. Finally, they are now making a distinction between vaccinated and unvaccinated folks.

    Under Alert Level 4, only fully vaccinated people will be allowed to dine in at 10% capacity, while all others can dine al fresco at 30% capacity. Only fully vaccinated people will also be allowed at barbershops and salons under Alert Level 4.

    just sharing my thoughts while I was driving to the office this morning.

    I wonder who are those "DOH experts" and how do they go home to their families everyday. We are already in the "ber" months and I'm sure those "experts" are starting to think of their hefty year end bonuses.

    As of September 14, 2021
    • We are the only country in world that uses Face Shields
    • "experts" are still studying if booster shots will help (despite that fact that other countries have started administering it)
    • "experts" are still studying the effects of mixing vaccines (despite the fact that other countries have started mixing them)
    • with the world's longest lockdown, our cases are still rising!
    have we exported our "smart experts" to other countries?

    or maybe, these "experts" used to be super smart, but then the lack of nutrition (as it seems like they are required to eat tuyo whenever the cameras are rolling) affected their decision making :whistle:

    These "experts" just want us to think they are "working".

    hahaha. "busy-busyhan"

    was just thinking.

    imagine if you were a "DOH Expert" then you go home to your family explaining
    why we need to wear face shields while their relatives and friends abroad don't even wear face masks
    why we can't use a booster shot, a third shot and mixing shots
    why we can't allow vaccinated people from going out

    Is the time of exposure mentioned here accurate for the delta variant also?

    mmm….I dont think so. Delta variant infectee has a viral load that is much higher than the original variant. Therefore, exposure time threshold is much lower. From what I ve read, delta is up to 10 times more contagious than the Wuhan variant.

    If at all possible, use only N95 (extremely difficult to find) or at the very least KN95 ( available) for better protection. Double mask with surgical.
