    Webinar #98
    May 6, 2022
    “NIRMATRELVIR-RITONAVIR, MOLNUPIRAVIR, AT REMDESIVIR:
    May mabisang gamot na ba laban sa COVID-19?”

    After two years of the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been great strides in our scientific understanding of the SARSCov2 virus and its variants — paving the way for vaccination as a foundation for prevention, and home-based antiviral drugs for early treatment, to decrease the risks for hospitalization from severe COVID and preventable deaths.

    From the early days of fake news around the use of certain drugs to prevent COVID-19, the scientific community can now comfortably say there are specific treatments for COVID-19 that can be used at home and in hospitals.

    Recently, WHO made a strong recommendation for nirmatrelvir and ritonavir, sold under the name Paxlovid, for mild and moderate COVID-19 patients at highest risk of hospital admission, calling it the “best therapeutic choice for high-risk patients to date”.

    However, not all countries are able to avail of the drugs. In the Philippines, these treatments are already available, but there is limited public discussion on this.

    This WHO recommendation is based on new data from two randomized controlled trials involving 3,078 patients. The data show that the risk of hospitalization is reduced by 85% following this treatment. In a high-risk group (over 10% risk of hospitalization), that means 84 fewer hospitalizations per 1,000 patients.

    In this episode of Stop C.O.V.I.D. Deaths, two leading experts in COVID-19 management will discuss the current medicines available for home use as well as hospitalized patients. Dr. Franco Felizarta, a US-based Infectious Disease & Internal Medicine Specialist and a member of the UP Medical Alumni Association in America (UPMASA) will discuss nirmatrelvir with ritonavir, (Paxlovid) as a drug of choice for home-based care; while Dr. Ralph Elvi Villalobos, a Consultant with the Division of Pulmonary Medicine from the Philippine General Hospital will discuss the standard of care for hospitalized patients. Synthesis and Closing Remarks will be delivered by the Chancellor of the University of the Philippines Manila, Dr. Carmencita D. Padilla.

    Join us as we learn about the latest anti-virals and how treatment plays a critical role in controlling the pandemic. See you then!

    Stay Safe. Stay Healthy. Stay Connected.

    Together we can Stop C.O.V.I.D. Deaths!

  • ANYARE? Post-Election Analysis
    12:00 PM-2:00 PM
    May 11, 2022


    People will be talking, analyzing and dissecting this Presidential Elections 2022 for years to come. Was Google Trends a better predictor than the Presidential Surveys? Did the Kalye Surveys, Presidential Cup Surveys or Social Media Polls successfully get the pulse of the masses? Were the trending social media hashtags a better gauge for who’s leading than the campaign rally body counts with drone shots?

    Join us on this special webinar intended to kick up discussions on prediction models and whether or not they established trends and influenced mindsets on the actual vote. This final webinar is organized by the Philippines Communication Society (PCS) and the University of the Philippines System, through the Office of the Vice President for Public Affairs and TVUP- the Internet Television network of the University of the Philippines.

    “ANYARE? Post-Election Analysis” will be moderated by Ces Oreña Drilon, and is the tenth and final webinar under the National Forum on Communication and Democracy: Philippine Elections 2022 series.

    The webinar and online forum will be held via Zoom and broadcast live on the Facebook pages of PCS and TVUP and on TVUP’s YouTube channel at 12 noon on May 11, 2022.

    Webinar #99
    May 13, 2022
    “ISA PA NGA: Kailangan ba talaga ng 2nd COVID-19 Booster?”

    Three weeks ago, the Secretary of Health approved the recommendation of the Health Technology Assessment Council (HTAC) to give a fourth dose (or second booster) of the COVID-19 vaccines AstraZeneca, Sinovac, Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Sinopharm to the immunocompromised population for ages 18 years old and above. These individuals are those who have been receiving cancer treatment or those receiving immunosuppressants, and also those with advanced or untreated HIV infection, among others.

    Recently, clamors from the healthcare workers sector as well as from senior citizens, and overseas foreign workers have spurred the discussion to expand the giving of the 4th dose to these cohorts. In fact, in countries such as Israel, the rollout of the 4th dose has been rolled out several weeks ago. However, the recommendation for the Philippine government is to enhance the coverage of the primary series doses across the priority groups.

    In this episode of Stop COVID Deaths, two leading experts in immunology will discuss the latest on COVID-19 booster doses and the rapidly evolving evidence surrounding these. Dr. Marysia Recto will discuss the Clinical Evidence for recommending the 2nd booster dose for the different populations, while Dr. Jenifer Otadoy-Agustin will talk about the immunologic side effects with a review of Adverse Events following Immunization in the Philippines. Synthesis and Closing Remarks will be delivered by Dr. Stella Marie L. Jose, Deputy Director for Health Operations of the UP Philippine General Hospital.

    Join us as we learn about COVID-19 booster doses and how important these are for the eligible population. See you online!

    Stay Safe. Stay Healthy. Stay Connected.

    Together we can Stop C.O.V.I.D. Deaths!
