A photo of an exhausted frontliner in Roxas City has gone viral. It showed the real situation of the frontliners who are working daily to serve the public.
The photo was posted by Radyo Bandera and Dr. Lorry Cahilog, Roxas City Health Officer (CHO), confirmed that the frontliner was on duty at the Hortus Botanicus and has been there for almost a week doing swab tests.
Cahilog also mentioned that it so happened that the number of those who requested for a swab test increased.
Although surprised at how the photo made its way to social media, she admitted that it just showed the situation of the frontliners.
It is also the reason why she is asking for a 14-day time out with regards to returning LSIs and OFWs.
The government faced problems when they imposed the initial community quarantine, which was elevated into enhanced community quarantine. It also suspended transportation causing massive problems with commuters.
Frontliners express their fears and the difficulties that they go through at the hospital especially with the ongoing crisis.
The COVID-19 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. The Philippines has slowly eased quarantine measures and Filipinos are starting to adapt to the new normal.
