Did you know that by keeping our environment clean and healthy protects us from viruses?
In his welcome message in the Webinar on World Environment Health Day on September 25, 2020, DOH Secretary Francisco Doque said that it is without doubt that environmental risks pose a great threat to human health now more than we ever thought before and that 50% of the factors linked fo health are traced back to the zip codes and as such, the social and physical environment of an individual is an urgent and important factor to be addressed.
Some sectors that need to be highlighted when it comes to environmental health and safety in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic are:
✅ Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH)
✅ Air Quality
✅ Climate Change
✅ Solid and Hazardous Waste
The battle to a healthy environment is a shared responsibility between the government, its agencies, and every single Filipino.
Ampingan ta ug ipabiling limpyo ang atong kinaiyahan aron kita magpabiling himsog ug luwas gikan sa hulga sa COVID-19!
