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.
Doctors, nurses, and many healthworkers have died after being infected by COVID-19. They are among the frontliners who attend to the patients rushing to hospitals amid pandemic.
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. At present, the government imposes different categories of quarantine restrictions depending on the number of cases and other pertinent factors on various provinces.
