A husband would faithfully push his wife on a wheelchair along Commonwealth Avenue from Batasan to Fairview, which is roughly six kilometers, in order to bring his wife to the dialysis center.
The video of the elderly couple, doing this three times a week has caught the attention of many netizens.
As per ABS-CBN's report, the dialysis patient is Loida Fernandez. The couple only borrowed the wheelchair so that Loida could have her much-needed dialysis treatment.
KAMI learned that the couple would wake up and start on the road early so that they could be at the center by 9 a.m.
The wheelchair is already wearing out as they have been using the wheelchair on the road several times already.
Barangay officials promised to help the couple, and are also encouraging others to come to them so that they could be brought to the hospitals where they undergo treatment.
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.
