The enhanced community quarantine has placed a huge burden on income earners all throughout the Philippine archipelago.
The government of Bulacan was quick to respond to the needs of its residents and has started with the distribution of relief packages to every household.
One house in Pandi, Bulacan has a sign posted on its door saying, "I-share na lang po sa iba yung para sa amin. Salamat!"
This earned the mayor's commendation, considering that out of this time of need, a family chose to have compassion.
In Mayor Rico Roque's post, he said that while they would not be discriminating and would be giving to all households, it would still be up to the home whether to receive the package or give it to others.
In a previous report by KAMI, the government faced problems when they imposed the initial community quarantine, which was elevated into the now ongoing enhanced community quarantine. It also suspended transportation causing massive problems with commuters.
The coronavirus outbreak started out in Wuhan, Hubei Province of China. Scientists believed that the virus came from an animal at one of Wuhan's wet markets. At present, the Philippines is under a state of calamity while the entire Luzon is under an enhanced community quarantine.
