Negros health office looks into hidden drugs from “medical missions”

Cebuano Cebuano English English Filipino Filipino


An investigation into social media rumors that medications intended for medical missions were discovered buried in an empty lot in this country’s capital city has been ordered by the provincial health officer for Negros Oriental.

Dr. Liland Estacion, the official in charge of the Provincial Health Office, said that she was first made aware of the occurrence last Tuesday and that she promptly directed her team to confirm the reports and carry out a comprehensive investigation.

She remarked in a mix of jumbled English and Cebuano, “I have requested an investigation into this and until the results are out, I cannot comment yet on the social media posts and images related to this occurrence.
Pictures of allegedly expired medications and other medical supplies were making the rounds on Facebook. These medications, according to posts on social media, were allegedly intended for the provincial government’s medical mission.

Estacion stated that the Negros Oriental Provincial Hospital (NOPH) and other hospitals in the province had a process to follow in the correct disposal of expired medications, equipment, and medical wastes, though she did not want to predict the outcome of the investigation.
