BACOLOD City’s Mayor, Monico Puentevella has sought the help of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) on Monday to help identify those responsible for spreading false information over social media.
Puentevella said he wrote to the NBI because he wants to catch the culprit who caused many people to panic by spreading that a Korean national in the city was tested for Middle East Respiratory Syndrome-Corona Virus (Mers-CoV).
The mayor said they will be filing a case of sabotage against those responsible to stop the attempt to tarnish the image of Bacolod.
“Whoever is involved must be investigated so this thing will not happen again,” Puentevella said.
Last week, a message circulated through text saying: “Good afternoon everyone. Please wear N95 mask for Mers-CoV prevention. One person is positive here in CLMMRH, Bacolod City as confirmed today. Spread the word. By Dr. Lim, president of Riverside Medical Center.”
Because of the text message, social media posts also circulated prompting panic among college students.
However, a personnel from the mentioned hospital in the text message said that it was not issued by hospital management.
A Korean student was under observation at the Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital (CLMMRH) for suspected Mers-CoV last week.
The 22-year-old male Korean was found negative of the virus, and that he was only suffering tonsillitis.
NEGROS Occidental Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. said Monday that the Negros First Cyber Centre is available to national government agencies that will put up their regional offices in Bacolod City for the Negros Island Region.
Marañon said the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) has already expressed interest of getting a space at the Cyber Centre.
Other national government agencies are also putting up interim regional offices in Bacolod.
As to the regional directors, Marañon said that no appointments have been made yet because President Benigno S. Aquino III has not yet appointed the chair of the NIR Regional Development Council.
Meanwhile, Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce (MBCCI) president Frank Carbon said the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry will hold its Visayas Area Business Conference in Dumaguete City from July 16 to 17.

Hey guys! Its been awhile since my last blog and I recently ate Batchoy which was probably THE worst Batchoy I’ve tasted in my entire life. I just had to make a blog about the best Batchoy here in Bacolod to erase that horrible memory.
So, what is Batchoy? Batchoy is a delicious, savory, mouthwatering noodle soup made with noodles, pork organs, meat, pork cracklings(chicharon) and a hearty broth. This is probably the best meal to have during cold weathers or if you’re just craving for a soup specialty.
When someone asks me “Where can we have some Batchoy?” Immediately I think of Bar 21′s special Batchoy. Bar 21 which is located along Lacson street has THE best Batchoy in Bacolod.
Guys, whenever you’re in town, you have to try Bar 21′s special Batchoy. A hearty broth that’s been simmering for hours with some delicious “al dente” noodles mixed with pork organs, tenderloin and cracklings topped with some fried garlic and green onions.
Doesn’t that just make your stomach grumble and your mouth water?
Check out more of our blogs and share it with you friends!
