The daughter of a medical practitioner who recently died because of the novel coronavirus disease posted a lengthy message on social media.
KAMI learned that the said frontliner who succumb to COVID-19 was Marcelo Jaochico, the provincial health officer of Pampanga.
His daughter, whose name is Cielo Jaochico, penned an emotional message that touched the hearts of many people, including those who are in the medical field.
She initially stated that she is not yet ready to lose her father and she also advised other people to always tell their parents how much they love them.
She also revealed how it feels to never have a chance to hug her father even in the last moments of his life.
Cielo requested the public to not remember his dad as someone who died of COVID-19, but as a person who contributed a lot for his country.
“You will never be prepared for your parent’s death… Mahal na mahal kita, daddy… Please do not remember him as someone who just died because of COVID-19. Sobrang dami niyang ginawa para sa bayan,” she wrote.
“Dad, you didn’t deserve to die alone, nang di naririnig gaano ka kahalaga sa amin at gaano ka namin kamahal. Di man lang namin ikaw narinig sabihan din kami. Dad, we didn’t even get to hug each other for the final time,” she added.
In a previous article by KAMI, a young Filipino doctor also died after a patient lied about his travel history.
As of March 25, there are already 636 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the Philippines. 38 of them have passed away, including Dr. Marcelo Jaochico.
