DOH is running out of A(H1N1) testing kit
Health Secretary Francisco Doque III said in the news a while ago that the kit for testing the H1N1 virus is already running out. This is because more and more Filipinos are going to the RITM Hospital in Alabang right away to ask for a test if they feel sick, especially now that there was one recorded death. Sec. Doque said that “the money to buy the test kits are not a problem, but because this is a worldwide pandemic many countries are in need of the said kit.” The DOH said that from now on they will prioritize the people who have health problems, and those who are too young and too old.what ever happens in life we should always remember to live life to the fullest!
My concern about the matter increased because of this, the Philippines is a 3rd World Country and I don’t think we are the priority regarding the distribution of the test kits or the vaccine if ever they would be one already. As early as May 2009, rich countries have already made an advanced order for the sought-after-vaccine. And, I think that if the vaccine were already out we will only wait for the donation of these rich countries. This is so sad but this is the reality we must face.
I think the best thing to do is to increase our faith to God and just keep on praying that this would end very very soon.
