    Webinar #59
    July 2, 2021
    COVID-19 in Children
    Special Topic

     Can children get COVID?

    In the early part of the pandemic, it was believed that COVID-19, and its moderate and severe forms were mainly a risk for adults, particularly adults with comorbidities like heart disease, diabetes or diseases of the immune system.

    In this episode of STOP COVID DEATHS, the webinar co-sponsored by the Philippine Pediatric Society and its regional chapters — takes a closer look at Philippine data on COVID19 and children, its risks, symptoms and management.   Data suggests that fewer children get infected compared to adults and that symptoms are primarily mild or kids are even asymptomatic.  However, reports from other parts of the world point to how some children can get severely ill from COVID-19. They might require hospitalization, intensive care, or a ventilator to help them breathe. In rare cases, they might die.

    Researchers from India have recently reported rare but serious medical condition associated with COVID-19 in children called Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C). According to the report, this condition usually develops four to six weeks after children and teenagers have recovered from Covid-19.  Babies under 1 year old and children with certain underlying conditions may be more likely to have severe illness from COVID-19.

    Join us on July 2 for a presentation of data from studies done at the Philippine General Hospital to be presented by Dr. Maria Liza Antoinette M. Gonzales.  A teen Millie Velasquez Walker, who has had COVID and lingering symptoms from the United States will join the panel.  A teen Patrick De Guzman from the Philippines will articulate the perspective from Manila. The Department of Education through Usec Diosdado M. San Antonio, will share its perspective on the topic.  Opening remarks by Dr. Joselyn Eusebio, President of the Philippine Pediatric Society, and Closing Remarks from Dr. Carmencita D. Padilla, Chancellor of the University of the Philippines Manila.

    Webinar #60
    July 9, 2021
    “AIRBORNE OR AEROSOL: How is COVID-19 Transmitted?” 
    Special Topic

     The debate on the exact mode of transmission of SARSCov2 is typical for new viruses that require close examination.  Apart from the fields of biology and medicine, transmission of microbes benefits from the perspectives of engineers who can measure viral particles and recreate how these can move in the air, physicists who study the properties and behavior of particles – as well as infectious disease specialists who can link all this information to human behavior that creates risk for infection.

    We know that SARSCov2, the virus that has caused the pandemic, transmitted through droplets. We know that certain hospital procedures can aerosolize the virus and make it airborne – hence hospitals take airborne precautions.    The question is, in the community, the workplace, homes and eventually in schools — are there situations where smaller particles can float in the air and still cause infection even after a person who sneezed or coughed has left the room? How long can the virus remain viable (capable of reproducing) in the air or on surfaces? What are the situations that have the highest risks in community transmission?  How can we protect ourselves?

    Do we need to keep a farther social distance? Completely refrain from eating indoors? How do we properly ventilate our offices, our homes and our schools?

    These and many more aspects of the risks of SARSCov2 transmission will be discussed at the STOP COVID DEATHS webinar #60.  Main presenter is a mechanical engineer from the UP Diliman College of Engineering, and Associate Dean for Research Prof. Gerald Jo C. Denoga. Reactors are Head of the PGH Hospital Infection Control Unit, Dr. Regina P. Berba; Physicist and former President of Ateneo de Manila University, Fr. Jett Villarin, SJ; and with special participation of veteran health broadcast journalist Niña Corpuz who will make a presentation on how to communicate health risks to the public. Opening Remarks by Vice President for Public Affairs of the University of the Philippines System, Dr. Elena E. Pernia and Closing Remarks by the Dean of the UP College of Medicine, Dr. Charlotte M. Chiong.

    Webinar #61
    July 16, 2021
    “Virtual International Conference Part 3
    The Delta Variant: What Every Frontliner Needs to Know“
    Special Topic

     What are the Delta variants of SARSCov2 and what should every frontline worker know about this new phenomenon? Are the symptoms different?  Is it transmitted the same way as the Alpha variant?  Why are more young people affected? Can it cause more severe symptoms?  Can it cause serious health problems to persons who are already fully-vaccinated?

    As the world races to vaccinate against COVID-19, a highly contagious version of the virus is sweeping the globe – and is feared to move faster than vaccination efforts.

    First detected in India and now identified in at least 92 countries, including the Philippines — it is widely considered the most transmissible COVID-19 strain observed to date. A study by Public Health England suggests delta is 60% more transmissible than the Alpha variant.  The Delta variant spreads swiftly in places where there are low vaccination rates, according to research conducted in the U.K., where the strain already accounts for 99% of new COVID-19 cases.

    Delta may also be linked to a greater risk of hospitalization, and is somewhat more resistant to vaccines, particularly after just a single dose of the two-shot vaccines.

    • USA: 1 out of 4 cases are caused by the Delta Variant.
    • UK: Despite 62% of adults being fully vaccinated, a slightly higher rate than in the U.S.  Most of the new cases are in younger people who’ve yet to receive the two doses needed for maximum protection.
    • Russia and Indonesia: Where vaccination rates are much lower, the new strain is already being blamed for overwhelming hospitals and filling cemeteries.
    • Australia: Initially spared for a year and a half – have just imposed a strict two-week lockdown in Sydney.
    • France: Delta variant now accounts for one in five new COVID-19 cases in France — a similar proportion to that seen in the U.S. Health officials warn it will soon be the dominant variant. France just finished a strict month-long lockdown.
    • Germany:  Delta variant likely already made up about 50% of the country’s total COVID-19 cases. But with overall infection rates still low, federal and state officials agreed not to tighten travel restrictions within the country
    • Delta Plus variant — a mutation of the variant found in India — is growing as Indian officials will label it as a “variant of concern”. Despite this, there is limited knowledge about the Delta Plus variant
    • Delta Plus cases are mounting fast in India, but the strain has also been detected in the U.S., U.K., China, Japan, Russia, Portugal, Switzerland, and Poland.

    Be on top of this emergent situation.  Be a vehicle for the right information about the Delta Variants.

  • High Performance Computing and Data Science Workflow in Julia
    4:30 PM-6:30 PM
    July 16, 2021

    Julia is specifically designed from the start of its conception as a language for high-performance computation but at the same time highly interactive. To achieve this, Julia is one of the few modern languages that relies in just-in-time (JIT) compilation via LLVM to make its code run as fast or faster than statically compiled C and fortran codes. Its modern language design has the following features: multiple dispatch, Lisp-like macros, dynamic types, type inference, built-in parallel/distributed computing, lightweight threads, and elegant high-level language constructs.

    Outline:
    1. Introduction to Julia Language
    2. High-performance computing in Julia
    3. Julia in Data Science
    4. Julia Interfacing with Python and R*

  • Anthropology and Sociology: Divergences and Intersections
    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    July 16, 2021

     

    The Departments of Sociology and Anthropology of UP Diliman are cordially inviting friends, students, alumni, and colleagues to the centennial celebration of their institutionalization as an academic unit in UP Diliman. Initially housed under one department known as the Department of Anthropology and Sociology from 1921, the two disciplines formally separated in 1956 after three decades of being a single unit.

    With the theme “Anthropology and Sociology: Divergences and Intersections”, the celebration includes a conversation on the journey of these two academic disciplines. This forum is scheduled for July 16, 2021 from 5PM to 7PM. Recognizing the shared history of Anthropology and Sociology and the collaboration of the two academic disciplines up to this day, this forum includes a rundown of their achievements, struggles, and learnings from their shared and individual past.

    The forum will be conducted via Zoom and live-streamed on the Facebook pages of the Anthropology Department and Sociology Department. Zoom details are:

Can it cause more severe symptoms?  Can it cause serious health problems to persons who are already fully-vaccinated?

      As the world races to vaccinate against COVID-19, a highly contagious version of the virus is sweeping the globe – and is feared to move faster than vaccination efforts.

      First detected in India and now identified in at least 92 countries, including the Philippines — it is widely considered the most transmissible COVID-19 strain observed to date. A study by Public Health England suggests delta is 60% more transmissible than the Alpha variant.  The Delta variant spreads swiftly in places where there are low vaccination rates, according to research conducted in the U.K., where the strain already accounts for 99% of new COVID-19 cases.

      Delta may also be linked to a greater risk of hospitalization, and is somewhat more resistant to vaccines, particularly after just a single dose of the two-shot vaccines.

      • USA: 1 out of 4 cases are caused by the Delta Variant.
      • UK: Despite 62% of adults being fully vaccinated, a slightly higher rate than in the U.S.  Most of the new cases are in younger people who’ve yet to receive the two doses needed for maximum protection.
      • Russia and Indonesia: Where vaccination rates are much lower, the new strain is already being blamed for overwhelming hospitals and filling cemeteries.
      • Australia: Initially spared for a year and a half – have just imposed a strict two-week lockdown in Sydney.
      • France: Delta variant now accounts for one in five new COVID-19 cases in France — a similar proportion to that seen in the U.S. Health officials warn it will soon be the dominant variant. France just finished a strict month-long lockdown.
      • Germany:  Delta variant likely already made up about 50% of the country’s total COVID-19 cases. But with overall infection rates still low, federal and state officials agreed not to tighten travel restrictions within the country
      • Delta Plus variant — a mutation of the variant found in India — is growing as Indian officials will label it as a “variant of concern”. Despite this, there is limited knowledge about the Delta Plus variant
      • Delta Plus cases are mounting fast in India, but the strain has also been detected in the U.S., U.K., China, Japan, Russia, Portugal, Switzerland, and Poland.

      Be on top of this emergent situation.  Be a vehicle for the right information about the Delta Variants.

    • High Performance Computing and Data Science Workflow in Julia
      4:30 PM-6:30 PM
      July 16, 2021

      Julia is specifically designed from the start of its conception as a language for high-performance computation but at the same time highly interactive. To achieve this, Julia is one of the few modern languages that relies in just-in-time (JIT) compilation via LLVM to make its code run as fast or faster than statically compiled C and fortran codes. Its modern language design has the following features: multiple dispatch, Lisp-like macros, dynamic types, type inference, built-in parallel/distributed computing, lightweight threads, and elegant high-level language constructs.

      Outline:
      1. Introduction to Julia Language
      2. High-performance computing in Julia
      3. Julia in Data Science
      4. Julia Interfacing with Python and R*

    • Anthropology and Sociology: Divergences and Intersections
      5:00 PM-7:00 PM
      July 16, 2021

       

      The Departments of Sociology and Anthropology of UP Diliman are cordially inviting friends, students, alumni, and colleagues to the centennial celebration of their institutionalization as an academic unit in UP Diliman. Initially housed under one department known as the Department of Anthropology and Sociology from 1921, the two disciplines formally separated in 1956 after three decades of being a single unit.

      With the theme “Anthropology and Sociology: Divergences and Intersections”, the celebration includes a conversation on the journey of these two academic disciplines. This forum is scheduled for July 16, 2021 from 5PM to 7PM. Recognizing the shared history of Anthropology and Sociology and the collaboration of the two academic disciplines up to this day, this forum includes a rundown of their achievements, struggles, and learnings from their shared and individual past.

      The forum will be conducted via Zoom and live-streamed on the Facebook pages of the Anthropology Department and Sociology Department. Zoom details are:
      Meeting ID: 846 4671 7317

    “READY NA BA TAYO? A Conversation on the COVID-19 Delta Variant”
    Special Topic

     As a follow-up to last week’s episode on “The Delta Variant: What every frontliner should know” – we shift gears and start talking about how the Philippine health care system is preparing for possible spread of the virus as it sweeps through our neighboring countries in the ASEAN: Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore – among others.

    As developments unfold, there are an increasing number of patients tests that reveal the genetic sequence for the Delta variant of SARSCov2. What is happening in the localities of the Philippines where this is reported? What are hospitals and health facilities doing to protect frontline workers and prepare for a possible surge as the variant is known to be highly contagious? As there is a limited number of genetic sequencing that can be done in the country, what are other ways that frontliners might have a higher index of suspicion about the delta variant?

    In this week’s  episode of STOP COVID DEATHS, we continue to explore our response to these new developments through an informal conversation with doctors from around the country on the situation in places where the delta variant has been reported. The webinar will be opened by National Task Force Adviser Ted Herbosa, with participation of Usec. Abdullah Dumama, Jr. of the Department of Health; Former Health Secretary, Dr. Paulyn Jean Rosell-Ubial; Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital Chief, Dr. Julius Drilon; Head of the PGH Hospital Infection Control Unit, Dr. Regina Berba; Maria Reyna – Xavier University Hospital Director, Dr. Raul Winston Andutan; Northern Mindanao Medical Center Chief, Dr. Jose Chan, Philippine Lung Center Executive Director, Dr. Vincent Balanag, Jr.; and Closing Remarks from the UP Manila Chancellor, Dr. Carmencita Padilla.

    Stay informed through your credible on-line community. Join the STOP COVID DEATHS Webinar #62 and invite your colleagues and fellow frontliners to be part of this conversation.

    Stay Safe. Stay Healthy. Stay Connected.

  • Alam ng Isa Alam ng Lahat
    2:00 PM-4:00 PM
    July 23, 2021

    The Upsilon Sigma Phi Alumni Association (USPAA) in cooperation with the University of the Philippines Systemand UP Alumni Association (UPAA) invite you to the virtual launch of  “Alam ng Isa, Alam ng Lahat”, a voter education and registration campaign on July 23, 2021 (Friday) 2-4pm MNL time via Microsoft Teams. Register for this free event here:

    bit.ly/USPAA-ANIANL

    “Alam ng Isa, Alam ng Lahat” is a series of online voters’ registration campaign with various satellite registration areas for actual registration, primarily aimed at UP students and adjacent communities. Through this program, we hope to encourage the youth of today- your siblings, cousins, children and grandchildren- to register and exercise their right of suffrage.

    The Upsilon Sigma Phi Alumni Association (USPAA) is the alumni organization of the Upsilon Sigma Phi fraternity of the University of the Philippines. One of the organization’s core values is to ensure the economic stability and political maturity in our country. As such, the same is in the hands of the electorate as the country nears the 2022 national and local elections. We are about to troop to the polls to ensure that we elect competent leaders to shepherd us through this pandemic.

    COMELEC data reveals that there are still around two (2) million unregistered voters primarily coming from the youth sector. Hence, it is the thrust of our organization to encourage everyone to go out and take part and exercise their civic duty to vote.

  • Sketches: UP Symphony Orchestra
    7:00 PM-9:00 PM
    July 23, 2021

    Chamber music fans celebrate! If you enjoy the music of trios, quartets, and quintets, here’s a treat for you: The UP Symphony Orchestra will present a series of chamber performances by its members in their upcoming concert, Sketches.

    Covering a wide range of emotions and sounds, the concert program includes a pleasant flute trio serenade by Saverio Mercandante, a playful string trio of Antonin Dvorak, and a passionate string quintet of George Onslow. The orchestra will also premiere an arrangement of Hector Berlioz’s Quaerens Me from his Requiem for viola ensemble, Edward Grieg’s Sarabande from Holberg Suite for cello and bass ensemble, and a surprise song of Ernani Cuenco for string quartet.

    The concert will end with the entire orchestra reunited on the (virtual) stage, to perform the well-loved Mindanao Sketches by Col. Antonino Buenaventura.

    Not all performing is done the same way. Performing along with only three people requires a kind of attention and skill different from performing embedded within a full 65-piece orchestra. Performing solo, on the other hand, is a whole different matter on its own. With this concert, the UP Symphony Orchestra aims to highlight its members’ volatility in performance, showcasing their skills not only as orchestra performers, but chamber musicians as well.

    Sketches is the sixth and final installment of the orchestra’s ongoing third concert season which began last October 2020. Their virtual hour-length productions include a mix of archive videos from past performances, and new, remotely recorded works. But the group has no plans of slowing down after this release: Their fourth season immediately kicks off in August, starting an exciting, jam-packed lineup of concerts, guest artists, and more that should not be missed. Sign up for their newsletter at tiny.cc/upsomail to receive updates!

    Catch the premiere of Sketches along with all previous and upcoming UPSO concerts on the orchestra’s Facebook page and YouTube channel. The premiere is set for Friday July 23, 7pm, and will be available for viewing until July 31.

    Webinar #63
    July 30, 2021
    “LAGING HANDA: World Class Filipino COVID-19 Innovations”
    Special Topic

     

    While frontliners are responding to the immediate needs of COVID-19 patients, there is another group of frontliners who are inventing, innovating, and creating new technology to enable cost-effective, evidence-based, and more affordable care for Filipino patients.

    In this episode of STOP COVID DEATHS, entitled, “ LAGING HANDA: World Class Filipino COVID-19 Innovations” – we take a closer look at how our brilliant and persevering Filipino scientists are looking forward to produce local ventilators, personal protective equipment, decontaminating systems, and even robotics that can protect frontliners from exposure to viruses.

    UP PGH group called “Surgical Innovation and Biotechnology Laboratory (SIBOL)” led by Dr. Edward Wang will share their journey in the development of new technology called the SaniPod, a no touch self-contained disinfection cubicle which provides an additional layer of protection for those directly involved in the fight against COVID.  Next, Dr. Samuel Arsenio Grozman will present a Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR), which protects its user from airborne contaminants.  Meanwhile, Dr. Nathaniel Orillaza, Jr. will present My Bot Ensuring Safety and Health in Isolated Environments (myBESHIE), a Telepresence device, connected wirelessly, with or without internet, that helps health care providers interact with isolated patients remotely.  Finally, Dr. Abundio Balgos will share GINHAWA, a compact, safe and effective ventilator that can be used for both children and adult COVID-19 patients who are confined in the intensive care unit.

    End Users of these products Dr. April Llaneta, Dr. Kimberly Mae Ong, Dr. Mark Anthony Sandoval, and Dr. Camilo Roa, Jr. will share the benefits of these local inventions.

    Join us and stay on-top of the latest developments among the brilliant Filipino scientists of our country on Friday, July 30th at 12nn. It’s a date!

    Stay Safe. Stay Healthy. Stay Connected!

    Together we can STOP COVID DEATHS!
