Buko Vendor Had to Work Double-Time After Malls Return 10,000 Coconuts
A Buko vendor gets disappointed and would have to work hard after malls returned around 10,000 coconuts probably due to lockdown protocols.
The Philippine government is already implementing precautionary measures to contain the spread of the coronavirus. The deadly virus has already affected thousands of people in different countries all around the world.
COVID-19 is already causing fear to the public and panic buying of medical supplies including face masks, alcohol, and disinfectants. The people have already started to buy grocery items in advance before a possible food shortage.
Earlier this week, President Duterte has placed Luzon under an enhanced community quarantine to prevent the spread of the disease. The measure prompted several establishments to suspend their operations temporarily.
Recently, a Facebook user named Dnalor Ssecnirp has shared the photo of a disappointed Buko vendor working extra hard after malls returned around 10,000 coconuts. The post garnered various reactions from the online community.
The coconut vendors were now selling it for P15 per piece since they could not sell them at its regular price. Their production decreased over the past few days due to the lesser amount of people.
