A Man Attacks A Frontliner After Barred Entry Due To Expired COVID Test
MAN ATTACKS FRONTLINER – A frontliner was assaulted at a checkpoint in Zamboanga City after he barred a man from entering due to expired RT-PCR results.
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, several checkpoints have been placed in key areas across the country. In some of these areas, there have been critical cases of COVID-19, as such, a negative coronavirus test is needed to enter.
However, because of an expired entry, a man indentified as “Bobby Daniel Maningo” mauled City Health officer Aldrin Suazon. Unfortunately for Suazon, the damage was so severe that he needed operations.
Admittedly, the effects of the pandemic has taken a toll on millions of Filipinos. Some, however, are pushed past their breaking point and let violence and anger take over.
But, authorities constantly remind us that these protocols were imposed for a reason. A year into the pandemic, the Philippines has now reported over 500 thousand cases of COVID-19.
As such, the need for checkpoints and proper identification of documents such as negative COVID-19 results become necessary. Meanwhile, the follow-up to the incident between the frontliner and the attacker are still developing.
