Department of Health to Angel Locsin, “Thank you very much po. Mabuhay po kayo!”




On a virtual press conference on Monday, April 13, DOH clarifies removal of misting tents donated to PGH by the #UniTentWeStandPH team headed by Angel Locsin.

The Department of Health denied that it prohibited the use of misting tents saying that these donations had just to be removed from the Philippine General Hospital following a directive from the DOH against misting or spraying to the general public for disinfection; as it may pose a risk on human health.


"Nakapanayam po namin si Miss Angel Locsin, at gusto lang po naming ipabatid sa ating mga kababayan na napag-utos na po ng pamunuan ng Philippine General Hospital na tanggalin na po ang misting tents mula noong narinig po nila ang anunsyo ng Department of Health," Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergerie said.


According to DOH, misting is not that effective in fighting the coronavirus (COVID-19) and can even harm people. The department said that it received reports of people complaining of asthma or dermatitis because of misting. However, the use of spraying tents inside hospitals where health workers wearing personal protective equipment (PPEs) pass through is not prohibited, she clarified.




She also added that the tents she set up for health workers in PGH are still operational. “Gusto rin po nating linawin na itong mga misting tents sa PGH ay ibinigay po through a donation ni Miss Angel Locsin, at siya po ay sumusunod sa mga pamantayan at protocol ng Department of Health kapag dating sa mga dino-donate niyang produkto, o mga equipment or supplies.”

"Dahil diyan po, nagpapasalamat po kami sa lahat po ng mga nagbibigay at nagdodonate. Miss Angel Locsin, thank you very much po. Mabuhay po kayo," she added.


#UniTENTweStandPH was created to address the challenge of overcrowding occurring in hospitals during this pandemic and has accumulated almost 11 million in just two weeks. The actress announced on Monday that due to the overwhelming support and generous donations, they have received enough to mobilize the project and decided that they will no longer receive cash donations. The campaign has provided specialized tents, as well as medical supplies and PPEs, to a total of 150 hospitals across Metro Manila and neighboring provinces.
