HIV/AIDS cases up 100%

The number of people living with HIV/AIDS treated at the Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital in Bacolod City increased by 100 percent from January 2012 to November 30 this year, with about 10 deaths, Dr. Jimmy Gene Villo said yesterday.

Villo, who heads the regional hospital’s HIV/AIDS Core Team, told the DAILY STAR that in January 2012, they were treating 55 people living with HIV/AIDS, and as of November 30, the number had reached 110.

He said a boy said to be 13 years old, died from suspected HIV/AIDS last month at the CLMMRH. However, he said they are not certain if the age given by his parents was correct, and have not received confirmation from the San Lazaro Hospital yet on whether the boy was indeed positive for HIV/AIDS.moremoremore

on status of safari resort


Office of the Building Official officer-in-charge, Isidro Sun, said yesterday that the Metro Safari Resort has not started its construction yet in Brgy. Alangilan, Bacolod City, so there is nothing to act on.

However, Alangilan Barangay Captain Rodrigo Jagunap and Kagawads Donald Alimpalo and Alex Sausi confirmed yesterday that there are initial construction works within the 6-hectare property of MSR without permits and clearances required from various agencies.

Sun said he and one of his personnel went to Brgy. Alangilan last week and saw construction supplies in the area but claimed the only structure built so far was a bunkhouse.moremoremore
