Nalintikan na! VP Leni seeks clarification on COVID-19 ‘fresh cases,’ ‘late cases’ classification

The Vice President of the Republic wants the Department of Health (DOH) to be more thorough in explaining the latest novel coronavirus 2019 disease (COVID-19) cases of infection in the country most especially when they say “fresh cases” or “late cases.”

In her weekly Sunday radio show, Vice President Leni Robredo said she “does not understand the logic behind such classification.”

“Pero hindi ko pa ngayon, Ka Ely, maintindihan iyong bagong classification—iyong ‘fresh case’ saka ‘late’. Akala ko noong una, iyong late case, iyon iyong— Kasi ‘di ba inuulit iyong testing? Iyong mga nag-positive na, inuulit. Iyon pala hindi. Hindi pala iyon,” Robredo said.

“Ito pala, first time din na na-test pero hindi pa na-inform iyong pasyente. So iniisip ko lang, bakit kaya kailangan magkaroon ng ganitong classification? Kasi kapag first na test, parati naman iyang considered na ‘fresh’, ‘di ba? Hindi ko alam kung ano iyong logic doon sa pagbigay ng classification,” the Vice President added.

Ely Saludar, her co-anchor in “BISErbisyong LENI 
weekly radio show said there should be a clarification on the newly laid classification of cases, to which the Vice President agreed.

Oo, nakakalito kung bakit kailangan iyong ganito,” said VP Robredo.

  1. Ang pagkakaintindi ko iyong “late” cases ay iyong mga hindi naireport on time (within 3-days) for whatever reason at iyong “fresh” cases ay iyong reported within 3 days of the day of reporting. Pero paano tayo makaka analyze ng trend kung ganyan ang reports? Dapat lahat ng report ng cases ay may date at i-correct iyong daily reports accordingly para malaman natin ang actual at accurate na daily occurrence ng CoVid-19. Iyon lang ang makapagbibigay ng tamang trend o curve.
