Tagalog News: Pinsalang dulot ng paputok, ligaw na bala tumaas sa 1,004; apat patay -- DOH

ni Jojo S. Libranda

BALER, Aurora, Enero 6 (PIA) -- Iniulat ng Department of Health (DOH) na ang bilang ng mga pinsalang may kaugnayan sa paputok at ligaw na bala ay umabot na sa 1,000 na may apat na patay kahapon, Huwebes, na itinuturing sa pagsalubong ng 2012 bilang ‘deadliest year.’

Sa pinakabagong APIR (Aksyon: Paputok Injury Reduction) Surveillance Update ng DOH, sinabi ni Health Assistant Secretary Eric Tayag na sa 1,004 pinsala, 970 ay dahil sa pagsabog ng paputok, 29 ay sa ligaw na bala, at lima sa pagkalunok sa paputok.

Sa apat na naitalang namatay, tatlo ay kaugnay sa paputok habang ang isa ay dahil sa ligaw na bala.

"To date, this year is the deadliest of all the years that the DOH has monitored injuries every year. In 2009, there were two deaths reported from firecracker injuries. This year, there were three. We did not expect deaths from firecrackers, rather just amputations, blast burns. Death is really, really very serious (Sa kasalukuyan, sa taong ito tayo may pinakamataas na bilang ng pagkamatay dulot ng pinsala ng paputok. Noong 2009, may dalawang naiulat na pagkamatay mula sa pinsala ng paputok. Sa taong ito, may tatlo. Hindi natin inaasahan ang pagkamatay mula sa mga paputok, sa halip ay mga pagkaputol lamang, pagkasunog sa pagsabog. Talagang napaka-malubha ang pagkamatay," wika ni Dr. Tayag.

Nauna rito, sinabi ni Tayag na inirerekomenda ng DOH sa Philippine National Police (PNP) ang pagbabawal ng pangunahing nakapipinsalang paputok, kasama ang kuwitis, fountain, five-star, at lusis. Ang mga ito ay karagdagan na sa mga ipinagbabawal na mga paputok tulad ng watusi, ang homemade ‘boga,’ at Piccolo. (WLB/JSL PIA 3)
