To control and prevent the spread of the deadly virus, COVID-19, President Rodrigo Duterte placed Luzon under an 'enhanced community quarantine' which took effect on March 16.
Among the rules that were set for the ECQ was the issuance of a 'quarantine pass' which allowed one person from a household to leave the house to buy daily necessities.
Following this news, KAMI learned that a video of a couple arguing with a security guard at a local supermarket has recently gone viral on social media.
Watch the video below:
In the video, the woman argued with the guard after the latter refused to let them inside the supermarket as they have no quarantine pass.
The woman, who wanted to go inside the drugstore which was situated inside the supermarket, could be heard saying that they own the store which gives the guard no right to prevent them from visiting it.
"Kami ang may ari ng drugstore! Hindi niyo kami pwedeng harangin! 24 hours kaming bukas! Every other day andito ako sa inyo tas ngayon haharangan niyo 'ko," she said.
The couple could also be seen providing a paper from BIR instead of showing a quarantine pass.
The guard answered the couple calmly afterwards, "Quarantine pass po ang hinahanap namin," to which the man responded, "Eh wala nga kami nun. Hindi kami gumagamit nun."
It can be worth noting that included in the list of authorized people who are allowed to go outside of their homes during the ECQ are employees of drugstores as long as a valid ID is presented.
The said post elicited various comments and reactions from the online community.
"Saludo ako sa mga guard na walang pinipili."
"Wag mainit ang ulo. Sumusunod lang naman yan mga yan."
"Hindi ba pwedeng magsalita ng hindi sumisigaw? Ang tatapang niyo!"
"Simple lang naman bakit hindi sumunod sa batas? Para naman sa lahat ng ikabubuti yan."
As reported earlier by KAMI, health workers have been highly affected by the loss of public transportation due to coronavirus.
