Linawin niyo kasi: Stella Quimbo tells DOH to simplify home isolation rules

Stella Quimbo told the Department of Health one of its neglected but crucial roles amid this fresh surge in COVID-19 infections.

The Marikina congresswoman told the agency to better explain what families should and should not do when caring for a patient at home.

“While it remains important that we ramp up our vaccination program, we must also address the gap in effective home care practices. I call upon the DOH to take charge in providing clear home care guidelines to households,” the politiko said.

“Nais nating hindi mapuno ang mga ospital. Magagawa ito kung meron epektibong home care guidelines para sa mga taong mild to moderate ang symptoms na maaaring mag-isolate sa sarili nilang mga bahay,” she added.

It seems DOH did respond as it released its latest home care guidelines a day or two later.
