Here’s Video of Stranded Negrenses In Cebu Sleeping In Cardboard Mats
NEGRENSES – The stranded Negrenses in Cebu are pleading for the government to help them get home
Even though the government has lifted the strict quarantine measures, there are still ports in some cities or provinces that remain close due to COVID-19 fears. Among these stranded passengers are overseas Filipino workers (OFW).
On Wednesday, June 17, a Facebook user named Sean Gubalane Libradilla shared a video of the stranded Negrenses in Tabuelan Port, Cebu. He decided to take footage of the situation of the passengers bound for Escalante, Negros Occidental to ask for help from the government.
The netizen said some of the Locally Stranded Individuals (LSI) were forced to sleep in cardboard mats because they have nowhere else to go. There are about 200 stranded passengers in Tabuelan port.
Based on a report from ABS-CBN News, Mayor Raul Gerona, who issued Executive Order No. 07, said “outgoing passengers bound for Negros and Iloilo island are banned from boarding the ferry and ro-ro vessels to suppress the spread of COVID-19.” Libradilla said the stranded Negrenses in Cebu are pleading for the government to help them get home.
