The top drug personality of Cebu province, Alvaro “Barok” Direcho, has developed a fever inside the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center (CPDRC). Despite this, Dr. Henry Calledo of the Cebu Provincial Health Office found no legitimate reason to bring Barok to the hospital.

However, according to Marco Toral, consultant on jail management of the Cebu Provincial government, Calledo has given him medicine during his visit to the inmate.

Barok has developed fever after his arraignment in the Regional Trial Court in Danao City, northern Cebu, where he pleaded not guilty in the charges of illegal possession of drugs and firearms.

Toral informed that Barok’s temperature went as high as 40 degrees Celsius last Tuesday, and he had rashes on his body. The physician gave him antihistamine to remedy the allergies, which usually acts up whenever he has fever according to Barok himself. | ASCS - FNPH
