Health Assistant Secretary Enrique Tayag encourages children at Gagalangin, Tondo to dance instead of lighting or playing with fireworks/firecrackers in welcoming the New Year as Department of Health (DOH) statistics indicate that young children are the usual victims during the revelry. Tayag reiterated the DOH warning to children not to pick used, lighted firecrackers. About 80% of all fireworks-related injuries are blasts or burns without amputations, 13% are eye injuries and 6% are blasts or burns requiring amputations. (17 December 2012)
Department of Health (DOH) Assistant Secretary and spokesperson, Dr. Eric Tayag, showed off his dance moves again, this time to the tune of South Korean rapper Psy’s hit song “Gangnam style.” Tayag said the dance is for DOH’s campaign against firecrackers.
