- When computed, a celeb stated that for 600 volunteers, the total would only be at P30million which the government can pay
Many celebrities reacted to the news that doctors in the country were only given a pay of P500 for an 8-hour shift per day of "contribution" in fighting COVID-19 by the government.
They felt incredulous at the compensatory equivalent that the government is giving in exchange for the sacrifice and risk that doctors and nurses are facing every day.
Some of those who were quick to speak out on Twitter include Bianca Gonzalez, KC Concepcion, ZsaZsa Padilla, and Karen Davila.
Bianca, directing her statement to the government said that the doctors are worth more than P500 and that the government must reconsider.
Zsazsa appealed for the DOH to do something about it.
Karen Davila computed the total cost of the 600 frontliners would be given an equivalent monthly salary from the government, which would only be at P30 million, something which the government can afford.
KC also said that the frontliners truly deserve more.
In a previous report by KAMI, doctors have died after being infected by COVID-19. They are among the frontliners who attend to the patients rushing to hospitals amid pandemic.
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.
