IN NEG. OR.
83% kids immunized
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE

The Integrated Provincial Health Office of Negros Oriental said 83 percent, or about 29,659 children in the province were immunized against measles in 2013.

Assistant provincial health officer, Dr. Edgardo Barredo, said the children were also given the Bacillus Calmette-Guerin vaccine against tuberculosis, and shots against hepatitis B, polio, diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis, or whooping cough, a highly contagious bacterial disease.

The remaining 20 percent remain unvaccinated due to difficulty in reaching far-flung communities, religious affiliation, or lack of time for some parents to bring their kids to rural health units, Barredo said.

ĎArmy fails to destroy
NPA movement in NegOr'
BY GILBERT BAYORAN

The National Democratic Front, through its NDF-Negros spokesperson, Frank Fernandez, said that the 302 nd Infantry Brigade failed to destroy the revolutionary movement in Negros Oriental, prompting the Philippine Army to seek for a six-month extension to clear the province of the New People's Army.

Fernandez said that, contrary to military claims, the NPA in Negros remains strong, although he admitted that 2013 was a challenging year for the revolutionary movement.

Fernandez cited the deadline set by the AFP to weaken, if not destroy the revolutionary movement in Negros island, through its IPSP Bayanihan campaign plan, using the whole-nation approach strategy, that he said, ended as a failure..
