One of the “Brave 5” Shares Experience While Inside Quarantine Area
One of the “Brave 5” – medical team who flies to Hubei who brought fellow Filipinos back in the Philippines shares experience while inside the quarantine area.
Like the 30 overseas Filipino workers they brought from Wuhan City, the center of the novel coronavirus (nCoV), the so-called “Brave 5” medical team sent by the Department of Health (DOH) was also subjected to a 14-day quarantine.
The five are considered heroes because they did not show their courage to pick up and help the Filipinos who were trapped in Wuhan City under lockdown. As they felt a little nervous about going to China, but nothing will do because this is their job.
Five medical team members are all volunteers, including Dr. Oliver Macalinao, a pediatrician at San Lorenzo Ruiz General Hospital in Santulan, Malabon; Rowell Divinagracia, nurse at the Philippine Heart Center, Quarantine Officer V, Dr. Neptali Labasan.
The Brave 5 team also includes Jay Juan who is also a DOH-Health Emergency Management Bureau nurse and Elmer Callong a medical technologist at the Philippine Heart Center.
They now quarantine at Athlete’s Village in New Clark City along with other Pinoys they brought from Wuhan. Jay Juan share’s their experience inside the quarantine area in an interview with PTV News, he said that everyone was in good shape and their needs were met.
