The family of Corporal Winston Ragos received a staggering bill of P31,890 from the Commonwealth Hospital Medical Center where he died.
KAMI learned that the bill included use of the ambulance, cadaver bags, N95 masks and hospital equipment among others.
As per Rappler's report, the family of Ragos disclosed that they had to give the motorcycle of Ragos as collateral in order for him to be buried.
As per Merlyn, the mother of Ragos, the bill was an added burden but her priority at the moment is to fix the papers of Winston.
Ragos' mother is now gathering the documents needed for his burial because most of his documents got lost in December 2019, when Typhoon Tisoy wreaked havoc in their area.
Merlyn worked as a beautician before the lockdown. She is among those who lost their means of income due to the ongoing quarantine.
Ragos was shot on April 21, according to ABS-CBN. He was allegedly violating ECQ rules and was shot by a policeman at a checkpoint in QC.
In a previous report by KAMI, the Philippine Army Chief already ordered the launching of an investigation on the death of Corporal Winston Ragos. As per their statement, they also mentioned that the wounds of a soldier are not merely physical but also mental.
