Stop fake news,
discrimination, Panasiatic appeals
BY CHRYSEE G. SAMILLANO

The site director and general manager of Panasiatic Call Centers Inc. in Bacolod City appealed to the public to stop spreading fake news about their agents testing positive for the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

Siony Hijara-Ferraris yesterday said they have not yet received the official result of the swab test of their employee who passed away, and it is not true that the employee’s mother and roommate, a work-from-home agent, tested positive for COVID-19.

The mother underwent swab test Wednesday while the work-from- home agent was swabbed Tuesday. moremoremore

Farmers, fishers to receive grants
BY MARCHEL P. ESPINA

The Department of Agriculture will grant financial assistance to qualified farmer and fisherfolk cooperatives and community-based organizations to ensure the supply of food in high consumer demand areas.

DA 6 regional director, Remelyn Recoter, said yesterday that the “Enhanced Kadiwa ni Ani at Kita Inclusive Food Supply Chain Program” aims to strengthen the partnership between the private sector and the farmer and fisherfolk groups through harnessing their participation in the food supply distribution system.

The assistance covers financial grants for capacity enhancement of the associations on value-adding activities in the food supply chain, which includes the procurement of agricultural produce, aggregation, initial processing, packaging, transport, and distribution of agri-fishery commodities, she said.
