BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

Fourteen police personnel and non-uniformed personnel assigned at the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office, who have recovered from Covid-19 infection, received P10,000 in financial assistance yesterday from the Philippine National Police.

Brig. Gen. Rolando Miranda, newly-designated regional police director of Western Visayas, assisted by Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson, distributed the financial assistance at Camp Alfredo Montelibano Sr. in Bacolod City.

Col. Romy Palgue, provincial police director of Negros Occidental, yesterday said that the financial assistance was a result of the Shoot for Peace activity, that was organized by NOCPPO, at the provincial police office shooting range.

There are 38 police personnel and NUPs assigned at NOCPPO, who were infected by Covid-19.

Of the 38, 36 have already fully recovered, according to deputy provincial police spokesperson, Lt. Abegael Donasco.

The remaining two others are still in quarantine facilities, Donasco said.

Ten of the Covid-19 infected police personnel, who have recovered and are now reporting to their respective duties, donated plasma for use by critically-ill Covid-19 patients, she added. Lacson, in his speech, warned the police and the public that Covid-19 is still around, and stressed the need for Negrenses not to lower their vigilance.*
