The COVID-19 cases in the Philippines are still increasing. There are still new cases of the disease daily as to the Department of Health (DOH) record.
According to DOH, out of the 80,448 cases of coronavirus listed as of this writing, 26,110 of the patients have already recovered while 1,932 died amid the battle against the disease.
Community quarantine measures are still up in the country and there is now the “new normal”. The wearing of a face mask is a protocol now and social distancing is observed.
Currently, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, there are still a lot of stranded individuals. Many of them were placed at Rizal Memorial Coliseum and, undeniably, there is an alarming number of people there now.
One of those who reacted to the flock of stranded individuals at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum is Ormoc City Mayor Richard Gomez. He penned an open letter for President Rodrigo Roa Duterte about it.
In his letter, Mayor Richard Gomez asked Pres. Rodrigo Roa Duterte about the in-charge of the “Hatid Tulong” program which led to a huge number of people at Rizal Memorial Coliseum. He believes the in-charge does not know what he is doing citing that social distancing’s not observed for more than two (2) days already.
Goma raised a question on the stranded individuals getting infected as they go home to their provinces. He tagged the in-charge of the program as insensitive and has “no regard for public health”. In his post, he stated that the in-charge must be terminated for what happened.
