Holding face-to-face lessons may be a good sign that the country is slowly recovering from the pandemic, but the Department of Education (DepEd) should first guarantee that all educators are fully inoculated.
Previous Sen. Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos, Jr. strongly advised DepEd to abandon its suggested policy of not requiring Covid-19 inoculation for teaching and non-showing employees of schools participating in the eye-to-eye class pilot program.
"That technique, in my opinion, has to be revisited. Because of the risks involved in having non-inoculated educators and personnel when they returned to up close and personal lessons in different countries and experiences, Nila was convinced. Please don't get me wrong: I'm delighted we're trying to start eye-to-eye classes. It's actually good news, since it's an encouraging sign that we're getting closer to predictability in some sense "He expressed himself.
Marcos also noted that, unlike last year, when children and teenagers were not immune to previous strains of the infection, there are now a large number of children aged four to 19 who have been infected with Covid, with the highly infectious Delta variant now being the most common infection strain worldwide.
According to the Department of Health, there were 38,825 Covid cases among children aged four and under, 40,286 cases among children aged five to nine, 54,847 cases among children aged ten to fourteen, and 82,434 cases among teenagers aged 15 to 19.
The previous legislator noted that because children under the age of 18 are still excluded from the public immunization program's need levels, they will be far more vulnerable when interacting with unvaccinated teachers and non-showing school employees.
"Iba na itong Delta variant, kung 'Yung findings noong isang taon Hindi masyadong naapektuhan ang mga bata, Hindi masyadong tinatamaan ang mga young person It's the variation on it that's the most irresistible. Marami nang mga bata, mga teen, and pati mga sanggol na nahawaan na nahawaan na nahawaan na nahawaan na nahawaan na nahawaan na nahawaan na nahawa I believe that educators should be immunized since they are exposed to so many people and then they are exposed to children, understudies, and children whose Hindi fathers are nasisimulang bakunahan "He expressed himself.
Marcos advocated allocating a portion of the antibodies, which are likely to be delivered in a few groups by the end of October, for the immunization of educators, repeating his prior appeal to remember instructors and the DepEd's non-showing faculty on the list of needs for inoculation.
Carlito Galvez Jr., the country's antibody czar, previously revealed that 41.5 million doses of Covid antibodies are expected to arrive in the last seven days of September and October, giving the country a total vaccination supply of 100 million.
