The Light Rail Transit Line 2 took to social media to express gratitude to its passengers obeying the “social distancing” scheme implemented in all major train lines in the country.
The official social media accounts of the LRT-2 posted photos of its passengers on March 16, the first workday of Metro Manila community quarantine, where commuters are keeping distance from each other.
“Social distancing strictly being implemented at LRT-2 platform area. Our sincerest gratitude to our passengers for their full cooperation and self-discipline,” it said.
“Inside the LRT-2 trains with the continued implementation of social distancing,” the LRT-2 wrote in another post recounting some photos taken inside their trains.
“Thank you for bearing with us as we find ways to ensure your safety and welfare amid the COVID-2019 threat,” it added.
In an earlier post, the transport line informed their patrons to stay at least one meter apart from each other as a measure to prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease.
“To our valued passengers: For your safety and protection, the LRT-2 will implement social distancing of one (1) meter inside the trains and stations as a measure to prevent the spread of the COVID 19 virus pursuant to the directive of the President and subject to the guideline to be issued by DOTr,” it announced.
In a previous report by KAMI, photos of Filipinos struggling to go to work amid community quarantine went viral.
Metro Manila is placed under quarantine as announced by President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday, March 12. People from other provinces will not be allowed to enter Metro Manila and social distancing must be observed.
As of posting time, the DOH has confirmed a total of 140 coronavirus cases in the Philippines. Two of those patients have recovered.
