Perhaps a little more local research then? I don't bother anymore and won't until an astute local member or local relative offers better news, and in the interim quite happy to vegetate.

OMO.

Cheers, Steve.

I got fooled by such I believe was official local decision in May/June, it didn't become as said, I guess overruled by National decision.

Back then Palawan had only one case (returning OFW in quarantaine) and wanted much less restrictions than the national.
Unclear how few they REALY have now by the statistics include palawanians living elsewhere than Palawan and haven't been there since covid started!!! The locals say almost no cases still.

(Cebu citizen (?) told about such much missleading for Bohol. I believe even more missleading for Palawan. When I asked 1.5-2 months ago, locals knew of only 9 cases total. I suppouse they didn't know of all, but that's huge difference from the official statistic...)

(I believe ) it was Cebu citizen who told he have researched it proper for Bohol,
and that suit to the much lower amounts Filipino friends living at Palawan have told me. I suppouse my friends don't know of all cases, but I suppuse they would know many more if the numbers REALY would be as the official numbers. And it's kind of "confirmed" by Palawan have got comparingly soft restrictions concerning traveling within Palawan.

I believe it was Cebu citizen who told the reason to tell high numbers is to get more funds to fight covid localy.
As I suppouse everyone in this forum know, the Philippines have very much people working abroad. I believe more than average at Palawan by there are almost no production jobs there beside agricultural/forestry/fishing/mining. I have never heared of any manufactory at all there except tiny ones questionable if calling them "manufactories". One was DISCUSSED to be started, refining mango, but I believe it never did.
So asuming what Cebu citizen (?) told is true, and the higher percentage people workjing elsewhere, the official amount at Palawan is EXTRA to high.

I have done "some" research myself for the Province of Bohol because I live here but my research was NOT "proper" or extensive and was very limited and gleaned from 2 websites only; DOH and the Bohol Provincial Government...

This one was NOT me...I do however remember reading a post from someone who said that the government pays more for a COVID death and therefore might cause some hospitals to call deaths due to COVID when they might not be...BUT it was NOT me who posted that information!

That is why I like the way Iloilo keeps their stats. They say how many cases total, then split it to show how many 'local' cases, and how many are returning OFWs and LSIs. For quite a while almost all our cases were imports.
cvgtpc1, Manitoba and bigpearl like this.

Are you getting your stats from FB? We do but I only see the figures on FB for La Union but Ben gets all the guff from the 5,000 relatives and friends on FB.Like this morning him telling me there is a new case in our local town 4 kilometres away. I talked to his Aunty (midwife) and niece a few days ago at a birthday party,,,,,, yes mask on while none of the 50 odd attending donned the same. Hospital staff are petrified when Covid cased are admitted because of insufficient financial support for correct protection and not wanting to take infections home to the family.

I have been under a misnomer for the last 6 months believing that our purchases/groceries etc will be Covid free after a few days, we wash refrigerated items and don't touch most other things for 3 to 4 days, wash, change clothes etc etc.
This morning I saw an article on the life cycle/survival of C-19. Astounded. At minus 20 celsius it could live up to a year, yes in our freezers and on smooth hard surfaces (glass, stainless steel, hard plastics) at room temperature for 4 weeks, the higher the temperature the life is reduced.
I will try to find the article I watched and share.

Well While Ben sanitises most if not all things after shopping we have never sanitised the car or bikes,,,,,,,, Tomorrow morning when I pull out chicken, beef, pork from the freezer I will have to re evaluate the packaging as well as the contents.

OMO.

Cheers, Steve.
