Despite the Luzon-wide lockdown, as many as 45 to 60 animal bite cases are reported every day in Bataan province, Gov. Albert Garcia said on Friday.

In an advisory, he said the Bataan General Hospital and Medical Center (BGHMC) will no longer accept people who were bitten by animals like dogs for rabies shots, as the facility will be made exclusive for Covid-19 patients.

“Upang mas mapangalagaan ang mga pasyente at health workers sa ating Lalawigan, minabuti ng Bataan Inter-Agency Task Force on Covid-19 na gawing eksklusibo na ang BGHMC para sa mga Covid cases,” Garcia said.

He said that many animal bite cases were still being reported daily.

“Sa kabila ng mahigpit na tagubilin ng mga awtoridad na manatili tayo sa ating mga tahanan sa ilalalim ng Enhanced Community Quarantine, nakapagtatala pa rin po ng 45 hanggang 60 kaso ng animal bites sa ating Lalawigan araw-araw,” Garcia said.

Thus, all anti-rabies vaccine shots will be administered by municipal or city health offices.

“Kaugnay nito, pansamantala munang ipinagkatiwala ng BGHMC sa Provincial Health Office ang pangangasiwa sa mga antirabies vaccine kung kaya’t ang mga nangangailangan ng antirabies vaccine ay maaaring pumunta sa inyong pinakamalapit na Municipal/ City Health Office at Rural Health Unit ng Mariveles,” Garcia said.

“Maari din pong tumanggap ng kaso ng animal bites ang Orani District Hospital, Bagac Community and Medicare Hospital at Dinalupihan District Hospital,” he added.

“Sa mga bayan po na walang health center, bukas po ang ating PHO mula lunes hanggang biyernes upang tumanggap ng animal bite cases,” Garcia said.
