- An 89-year-old went out of her home to sell broomsticks because she had no money to buy food
- When she reached a checkpoint, policemen stopped her considering that she was not supposed to be out at her age
- Instead of "arresting" or charging the old lady with a fine, a junior police officer opted to show compassion to the old lady who was living alone
- He bought the broomsticks that the lola was selling so that she would be able to have some money to buy food
An 89-year-old went out of her home despite the quarantine guidelines that senior citizens must stay at home during the period.
KAMI learned that she went out in order to sell the broom in the market in Paypayan, Oroquieta City.
When the grandmother arrived at the checkpoint, she was, of course, stopped by the policemen.
Instead of the usual routine process that quarantine violators undergo, the police officers had her sit on a chair and they showed the kind of service that the Philippines needs today.
According to News5 post, Police Trainee Raymon Lendio bought the brooms and gave lola some food and face masks too.
Netizens lauded the act of the valiant and kindhearted police trainee.
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.
