Seeking reliable health information in this difficult time equates to saving lives and alleviating the psychological effects brought by the current health crisis not just to our frontliners and their families but to the rest of the community as well.
Towards this end, the National Capital Region Police Office under the leadership of its Regional Director, PMGEN DEBOLD M SINAS, ceaselessly spreads and shares CoViD 19 awareness not just within the Metro but also among its counterparts in neighboring provinces.
Tackled and discussed by representatives from NCRPO Regional Health Service, NCRPO Crime Laboratory Chief, PLTCOL RUBY GRACE DIANGSON and Dr. Loi Garcia during the series of lectures were the recent information about COVID-19, its origin, symptoms, complications, mode of transmission and prevention based on national and global updates from reputable health organizations.
Further incorporated in the lectures were first hand exercises regaring the proper donning & doffing of PPEs, precautionary measures to be observed to ensure safety inside the Special Care Facilities, and other DOH issued advisories for CoViD 19 prevention.
This effort aims to boost awareness regarding CoViD-19 through extensive information sharing to help alleviate the fear and anxiety caused by this pandemic not just among our personnel and their families but more so to the communities they serve.
Among the participants of the seminar were nurses, members of PMFC, IOCs, personnel from CPS & MPS and other staffs from the RHQ & the five PPOs of PRO4A.
“This endeavor aims to alleviate if not totally diminish the fear and anxiety of our people based on misconceptions about the disease in order to support their ability to accordingly cope with the unique challenges brought by the current health crisis,” said PMGEN DEBOLD M SINAS
