PH Navy holding info drive among troops on Covid-19

By Priam Nepomuceno


MANILA — As in other battles, information is always a key factor in defeating or neutralizing the enemy.

With this concept in mind, the Philippine Navy (PN) is doing its part in containing the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) through the conduct of regular troop information and education for all personnel, said PN public affairs office chief, Lt. Commander Maria Christina Roxas, on Wednesday.

She added that an information campaign is being conducted by personnel from PN hospitals and other medical units.

Aside from this, Roxas said barracks are now allocated for personnel who might fall under the disease’s persons under investigation (PUIs) protocol.

“Barracks intended for possible PUIs are allocated, and temperature tests before entering PN premises is practiced,” she said in a message.

Also, Roxas said the PN is working closely with the concerned government agencies, especially the Department of Health in monitoring the disease.

“The Navy will continue to monitor the situation in order to reduce the risk of the virus spreading to the different PN units. Along with the other branches of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, the PN will continue to observe the safety of our soldiers, personnel, and civilian human resource,” she added. (PNA)
