The record rise in Covid infections was logged as restrictions were relaxed in Metro Manila (File)

The Philippines reported 18,332 new coronavirus cases today, Aug 23, the highest number reported since the first coronavirus case was detected in the country in January last year.

The new cases took the Philippines’ total tally to 1,857,646, according to Department of Health figures.


Of these, 130,350 cases or 7% of the total, are active, meaning the patients are receiving treatment.

The record number was posted as the national capital region, where the highest number of positive cases have been reported, moved to less stringent anti-Covid restrictions under the modified enhanced community quarantine.

Researchers said the implementation of stricter regulations for the past two weeks slowed down Covid-19 infections in Metro Manila, but efforts should be sustained in the next four weeks to build on the gain. 

Also today, the DOH reported 151 new deaths from the disease, raising the toll to 31,961.


A total of 13,794 patients recovered from the disease, pushing the total recoveries to 1,695,335.

Despite the surge in cases, nearly all involve patients who are either asymptomatic or have only mild symptoms, according to Health Undersecretary Leopoldo Vega.


“We’re seeing roughly about almost 98 percent mild, moderate and asymptomatics for these Covid cases,” said Vega.

About 1.86 percent of the cases are said to be severe or critical.

“This is kinda different from what we saw in April and last year when it was hovering about three percent for the severe and the critical,” he said.

Despite this, the bed capacity at intensive care units of hospitals across Metro Manila is said to be at a critical or high-risk level of 73%.

Vega encouraged more Filipinos to get vaccinated, saying this would prevent hospitalizations and severe cases.

As at Aug 22, the Philippines has reportedly vaccinated 13.13 million people, or 18.5 percent of the 70.85 million adult individuals qualified to take jabs.

About 17.26 million others have received their first dose, or 24.36 percent of those qualified.

Experts say a place should have a vaccination rate of at least 70% to provide herd immunity to its population.

Earlier today, the DOH also reported signs of silent community transmissions of the Delta variant in Metro Manila and the neighboring region of Calabarzon, meaning there is a clustering of unlinked cases in both places.

A total of 446 new Delta cases were reported today, bringing the country’s total tally to 1,273.

However, there are fears that the actual number may be far higher, as the Philippine Genome Center is able to handle only a small number of the positive cases.

Of the new cases, 442 are local transmissions, 14 involved returning overseas Filipinos, while 10 are still being verified.

Among the new Covid-19 patients is Armed Forces chief of staff, Lt Gen Jose Faustino Jr, who confirmed today that he tested positive for Covid-19. He is fully vaccinated. ela.

Faustino said he was in high spirits and continued to do his job even while quarantined.

Bello also got Covid-19 but is said to be asymptomatic

His infection comes a week after Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III announced he was tested positive on Aug 14 for the virus in his home in Ilagan, Isabela.

A statement later issued by the Department of Labor and Employment said Bello was asymptomatic and remained in top health. He continued doing his job while in quarantine.

The infected man had his vaccine shots in HK in April and May this year

Another local resident who had completed his two jabs of the BioNTech vaccine in Hong Kong has flown in with coronavirus infection, according to staff at the Centre for Health Protection.


The 37-year-old man who came via Swissair Flight LX138 on Jul 25 was also found to carry the L452 strain commonly linked to the Delta variant of the coronavirus.

The man, whose infection was confirmed today, Jul 27, reported developing symptoms on Jul 24.

CHP said the patient received his BioNTech shots on Apr 12 and May 3 in Hong Kong. He had been to Spain and Switzerland during the incubation period.

People aged 70 and above can get inoculated without an appointment from tomorrow

Meanwhile, starting tomorrow, people aged 70 or above will be able to receive coronavirus vaccines without having to make a prior booking under a scheme aimed at boosting their low inoculation rate.


The government announced today that 4,500 tickets will be issued each day to the elderly, who can use them to get vaccinated at a set time on that day.


The tickets will be distributed at 7:45am each day at all 24 community vaccination centres on a first-come, first-served basis.

Pindutin para sa latest Winners!

Most vaccination centers will have an allotment of 200 tickets each, but the smaller ones like in Tung Chung and the airport, will only get 100 tickets.

The elderly can send someone to pick up their pass on their behalf so they will not have to queue up. After vaccination, they will be told when they can have their second jab.

The government plans to extend the benefit to those aged 60 and above later.

The defendant admitted selling cannabis (marijuana) at Kennedy Town MTR station

A Filipina torture claimant and former domestic helper was sentenced to four months in jail today, May 26, after she pleaded guilty to drug trafficking in March.

Dorina Miswara, 36, was arrested after she was put on the wanted list for selling a small bag of cannabis worth $2,100 to an undercover police officer at the MTR station in Kennedy Town on Mar 11, then disappeared for a few days.


Miswara was found and arrested on Mar 22 by police officers who responded to a call about a dispute at the Fa Yuen St and Argyle St in Mong Kok.

When she appeared today before Magistrate Peter Law in Eastern Court, she was asked to plead to a charge of drug trafficking but not to a separate charge of overstaying, as her lawyer said she was awaiting the result of her application to stop deportation.

The magistrate set down the hearing of the overstaying charge on Aug 26.

In mitigation, the defense lawyer said Miswara had worked for just one person who paid her $300 per delivery of drugs.


But Magistrate Law did not accept this, saying investigators discovered in the defendant’s phone that she had made deliveries to a wide buyer network via the mobile app Telegram.

The defense counsel said her client came to Hong Kong last year to work as a domestic helper earning $4,630 a month. She was dismissed prematurely early this year but did not leave after her limit of stay lapsed on Mar 2.

Miswara has three children, two of whom are teenaged girls, They are looked after by their grandmother, and everyone depended on the defendant for financial support.

She also cited Miswara’s guilty plea and the small amount of drug seized as she asked for a lenient sentence,

Law, however, discounted her sentence only for her guilty plea, saying he saw no other reason to justify a further cut.

Michael Buble gives grandfather’s Vancouver house to Pinay nurse

Michael and his late grandpa
Canadian singer Michael Buble has won praise from all over the world for his generous act of donating his late grandfather’s house in Vancouver to a Filipina caregiver.

Not only that, Buble even had the house renovated before handing over the keys to Minette, who the singer said took such good care of his grandfather that it became the elderly man’s dying wish to give her a house of her own.

Buble’s rare act of generosity was featured in an episode of the HGTV show, “Celebity IOU,” where Hollywood’s A-listers are asked to express their gratitude to individuals who have had a major impact on their lives by surprising them with home renovations.

Pindutin pra sa detalye!

Buble went beyond that by giving away the house as well to Minette, whom he described as “a really special, beautiful woman.”

“Minette doesn’t keep any of the money she makes, she’s got a lot of family in the Philippines and she takes that money and sends it all back,” the singer said of the Filipina.

Inside the  house that Minette now owns
Buble also said it was he who hired Minette, but by the end, she became his grandfather’s best friend.

"I think my grandpa would be thrilled knowing that maybe we could lessen the burden a little bit, allowing Minnette to continue helping her family without it being so hard on her," he also said.
To surprise Minette, Buble conspired with the show’s hosts and former neighbors Jonathan and Drew Scott to do the renovation while the Filipina was on vacation in the Philippines.

Buble got so involved in the task that he helped demolish walls by swinging a sledgehammer, putting him in some pain afterwards that he had to undergo tests.

“I don't know what I did. It was so bad that I went and got an MRI after," he told Entertainment Tonight. "It turns out that I'm just out of shape and I'm a wimp and the sledgehammer was too much for me — but O got in there. I refused to not be in there with them."
Minette and Michael after the 'reveal'

To complete the surprise, he told Minette that they were shooting a documentary about him and his grandpa, and she needed to accompany him back to the late man’s house.
But when it was time to reveal the surprise, Michael told Minette, "My grandfather, his greatest wish was not just that I kept this house in the family, but it was that this would be your home cause he loved you so much and so there is no documentary this is all for you.”

As expected, Minette was overwhelmed by the Buble’s generosity and could only say afterwards: “I guess I’m part of the family.”


Hello, Love, Goodbye, malapit nang ipalabas

Posted on 17 July 2019 No comments

Pinahirapan daw ng husto ni Direk Cathy Garcia-Molina si Kathryn Bernardo sa Hong Kong habang kinukunan ang mga eksena niya sa Hello, Love, Goodbye para mas maintindihan niya at maranasan ang paghihirap ng isang OFW.

Papel ni Joy na isang OFW ang ginagampanan ni Kathryn sa pelikula, at katambal niya si Alden Richards na gumanap naman na isang bartender.

Sa global media launch ng pelikula na ginawa sa Maynila at ipinalabas ng sabayan via satellite sa Dubai, London at Los Angeles, sinabi ni Direk Cathy na sinadya niya ang pagmaltrato kay Kathryn dahil lumaki daw itong “privileged” kaya hindi nito alam ang pakiramdam ng isang naghihirap.
Isa sa mgta eksena sa pelikula ng dalawa.

“She had to know the pain and suffering ng isang OFW,” sabi ng batikang director.

Para maisagawa ito, pinagbawalan niya si Kathryn na makipag-usap kahit kanino sa set, at lalong hindi sa boyfriend nitong si Daniel Padilla. Tumagal ang shooting ng isang buwan kaya umabot daw sa punto na halos mag walkout na si Kathryn sa pelikula.

Sabi ni direk, binigyan naman daw niya ng karapatan si Kathryn na magalit sa kanya, kahit murahin siya, pero hindi ang walk out sa set.

Pati paggamit ng cellphone sa set ay ipinagbawal ni Cathy, pero may naawa daw kay Kathryn at pinahiram siya ng telepono. Nang makita ito ni Cathy ay pinaalis daw niya ang telepono.

Call us!

“E, mabigat yung eksena, siyempre bunganga ako, ‘Tanggalin ‘yan! Ang hirap talaga nung scene for her, pagod na pagod na pagod na pagod na siya, ‘tapos tinanggalan ko siya.

So, nagagalit na siya,” kuwento pa ni Cathy.

Pero hindi pa rin nagpakita ng awa ang director.  “Ay, grabe, hilahod, labas-dila. Labas-dila sa pagod, e, walanghiya ako,” sabi pa niya.

Sabi naman ni Kathryn, wala siyang nagawa noon kundi “inakap ko na lang ang role.”

Dagdag pa niya, hindi lahat ay gusto ang ginawang pagpapahirap sa kanya ng director, pero “sobrang nakatulong” daw ito para makaarte siya ng husto.

Call us now!

Dahil sa pelikula, nabuksan din daw ang isip niya tungkol sa malungkot na pamumuhay ng mga Pilipino na nagtatrabaho bilang domestic helper sa iba’t ibang mga bansa.

“Saludo ako sa mga OFW,” sabi ni Kathryn.

Hamon naman sa kanya ng director, “Pagkatapos ng pelikula sabihin mo kung galit ka pa sa akin.”

Ayon naman kay Alden, isang malaking karangalan na makatrabaho niya si Direk Cathy dahil matagal na daw niyang hinahangaan ang mga pelikulang ginawa nito.

“We share the same passion, which is acting,” sabi pa niya.

Binalikan naman siya ng papuri ni Cathy, na nagsabing sa unang tingin pa lang niya kay Alden ay nasabi niyang marunong umarte ito.

“Pero nagkamali ako, hindi siya marunong. Magaling siya.” Pagkasabi niya nito ay biglang napaluhod sa harap niya si Alden bilang pasasalamat.

Bagamat marami ang napahanga sa pagpapaliwanag ng mga artista at director ng pelikula kung bakit kailangang panoorin ang kanilang obra, may mga KathNiel fans naman na nagtatawag ng boycott dahil daw sa kissing scene nina Kathryn at Alden dito.

Nang tanungin si Cathy tungkol dito, paiwas naman nitong sinabi ang “Whether they kissed or not, it doesn’t matter. The movie can stand on its own.”

Nakatakdang ipalabas ang “Hello, Love, Goodbye” sa Maynila sa katapusan ng Hulyo, at sa United Arab Emirates sa Aug. 8.

Uge, may plano nang magpakasal

Inamin ni Eugene Domingo na umaasa siyang maikakasal din sila ng kanyang Italian boyfriend na si Danilo Bottoni, isang film critic. Tatlong taon na din daw ang kanilang relasyon.
“Lahat naman tayo, di ba, nangangarap ng kapayapaan pagdating sa aspeto ng settling down.

“But as of this moment, really, I’m very happy and I’m very thankful na, ayun na nga…” sabi niya sa press conference ng kayang bagong pelikula, ang “Ang Babae sa Septic Tank: The Real Untold Story of Josephine Bracken.”
Eugene Domingo

Nang tanungin kung engaged na sila, sinabi niya na parang nandun na sila sa puntong iyon, at idinagdag pa ang, “ It’s, like, he is my life.”

Kung sakaling mag-alok daw ng kasal ang boyfriend ay “agad-agad” daw niyang tatanggapin dahil nasa tamang edad na siya.

Dagdag pa ng 47-year-old actress sa tonong nagpapatawa, wala na daw dapat pang ingatan sa kanya.

Sa ngayon ay masayang masaya sila ng kanyang boyfriend kahit LDR (long distance relationship) sila. Hindi din daw sila nagmamadali na umabot na sa kasalan. “Bata pa naman kami,” dagdag biro pa niya.

Kung yayain daw siyang magpakasal at tumira na sa Italy ay papayag daw siya dahil hindi naman nito ibig sabihin na magreretiro na siya bilang artista.

Ipinaliwanag din ni Eugene kung paano siya napapayag na ang ikatlong installment ng Ang Babae sa Septic Tank ay gawing digital series sa streaming content platform na iWant, di tulad ng naunang dalawang pelikula niya sa parehong serye na ipinalabas sa mga malaking sinehan.

“E, kasi, di ba, uso na ang digital series ngayon, so updated tayo. “Kailangan sumasabay at sumasakay.

Kailangan din daw nilang maabot ang mga tao na busy at ang panahon para manood ng pelikula o serye ay sa iWant na digital.

Ang pitong serye ng tinawag niyang isang mockumentary, ay mapapanood sa iWant simula sa ika-17 ng Hulyo.

Marian Rivera, namigay ng breast milk

Buong pagmamalaki na ibinalita ni Dingdong Dantes sa pamamagitan ng Instagram na ang asawa niyang si Marian Rivera ay namigay ng “thousands of milliliters of breast milk” sa The Parenting Emporium, isang “social enterprise” na nagtuturo sa mga magulang kung paano nila dapat gampanan ang kanilang mga responsibilidad.

Tinawag pa ni Dingdong “ superwoman” ang asawa na isa ring sikat na artista dahil daw sa marubdob nitong pagnanasa na magpasuso sa kanilang dalawang supling, si Zia at ang bagong panganak na si Sixto.

Mas lalo daw siyang humanga sa ginawa nitong pagbibigay ng kanyang sobrang gatas sa mga batang nangangailangan nito.

Marian Rivera

Ayon naman sa Instagram post ng The Parenting Emporium, isang premature na sanggol na nagngnalang Mati ang isa sa mga makikinabang sa gatas na binigay ni Marian.

Sabi pa ng “social enterprise group,” kailangang kailangan ni Mati ng gatas mula sa isang ina para malampasan ang anumang sakit na madaling kumapit sa katulad niyang ipinanganak nang kulang sa buwan. Ang nanay daw ng bata ay kasalukuyan pang sumusubok na magkaroon ng sapat na gatas para sa anak.

Dagdag pa ng The Parenting Emporium, buong lugod na pumayag si Marian na sumailalim sa
HIV and Hepa blood test na kundisyon nila para masiguro na ligtas ang gatas na ipinapamahagi nila.

Si Dingdong naman ay nagsiguro na manatiling frozen ang gatas ni Marian hanggang umabot ito sa kanilang freezer.

Sabi naman ng Kapuso star, sobrang dami daw kasi ng kanyang gatas, at alam niyang marami ang nangangailangan nito dahil hindi naman lahat ng mommy e nabibiyayaan ng sobra-sobrang gatas katulad niya.

Dagdag pa niya, ideya daw talaga ni Dingdong na idonate sa mga nangangailangan ang sobrang gatas niya.

Sapatos, regalo ni Sharon sa anak na US-bound

Isang sorpresa ang binigay ni Megastar Sharon Cuneta sa anak niyang si Frankie o “Kakie” Pangilinan, ilang linggo bago ito tumulak sa New York para doon mag-aral ng kolehiyo.

Ipinakita ni Sharon sa Instagram ang ilang pares ng branded na sapatos na iniregalo niya sa anak na napaluha daw sa tuwa.

Ayon pa kay Sharon, ito ang mga unang mamahaling sapatos na ibinili niya sa 18-taong gulang niyang anak magmula nang ito’y magsimulang lumakad.

“She was naiiyak because we have always given our children a modest budget for shopping, and they aren’t spoiled and have very few expensive things,” sabi pa ni Sharon sa kanyang Instagram post.

“That way, they know the value of hard-earned money and appreciate it so much when they receive well-made investment pieces,” dagdag pa niya.

Sa isang hiwalay na post, ipinakita ni Frankie ang isang litrato kasama ang kanyang mommy na nagsa shopping, at nilagyan ng caption ng, Thank you for today.”

Nauna dito, sinabi ni Sharon na gusto niyang sumama kay Frankie sa Amerika kundi lang may dalawa pa siyang anak na kailangang alagaan. Kung siya lang daw ang masusunod ay sa Pilipinas na lang dapat nag kolehiyo ang anak.

Hindi sinabi ni Sharon kung saang eskwela sa New York papasok ang kanyang pangalawang anak, pero “dream school” daw niya ito.
