3 H1N1 suspects
negative for virus

BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

Three patients who were placed last week under close surveillance for possible influenza A(H1N1) infection tested negative of the virus, Dr. Socrates Villamor, provincial team leader of the Department of Health in Negros Oriental, said Saturday.

This means that Negros Oriental remains free from the widespread novel influenza virus strain that had prompted the World Health Organization to declare a pandemic.

The DOH-Negros Oriental on Saturday received the test results of swab samples taken from the patients, who included two adults and one child, from the Research Institute of Tropical Medicine, Villamor said

IN LA LIBERTAD
7 kilos ‘shabu’ seized by cops

BY JUANCHO GALLARDE

A shipment of about seven kilos of crystalline granules believed to be shabu was intercepted Saturday in La Libertad, Negros Oriental, and the results of a laboratory test conducted on it will be known today.

La Libertad police chief, Insp. Federico Gasalao, said the shipment could have been misplaced.

Investigations showed that a store in La Libertad received a rice shipment from Mindanao last week, and upon delivery by a local cargo transport company, it was found to contain the white crystalline granules.

Septage waste program
implementation readied

BY JUANCHO GALLARDE

The city government of Dumaguete is girding for a massive information and education campaign on its septage waste management program, to prepare the public for its implementation later this year.

A team composed of representatives from various community sectors on Friday completed a two-day workshop to develop a promotional campaign plan for its implementation.

The septage waste management program will be jointly undertaken by the city government and the Dumaguete City Water District, with technical assistance being provided by the United States Agency for International Development-Philippine Sanitation Alliance.
