It has been ten days since President Rodrigo Duterte placed the entire island of Luzon under “enhanced community quarantine” as COVID-19 pandemic cases continue to increase in the country. We didn’t expect this thing to happen but we need to accept the fact that this is happening right now. Under Enhanced Community Quarantine strict home quarantine should be observed in all households, no public transportations are allowed to operate, facility for food and essential services shall be controlled. By doing this government believes that covid-19 patients will be lessen.
I know this is not easy. The last time I went outside was March 16 to buy some goods. I still have stocks and able to survive the coming days but not all are like me. Many are complaining how they will eat; good thing local government units are doing their part. They give food especially to those who really needed assistance at this time. Here in my place, I received 2 -3 kilos of rice, 2 sardines and 4 pieces of coffee. I’m thankful for this but this is not enough if home quarantine will continue for a month.
I’m with the government and will follow home quarantine. I hope others will do their part. This is for us guys don’t be argumentative and just obey our government officials. And for the administration please continue to give aid especially to those who really need assistance. And for my fellow Filipinos, I know the government is doing everything in order to fight COVID-19. Let us cooperate; stay at home so virus will stop spreading, don’t forget to pray. I know God is there for us He is just waiting for us to call Him. Be strong soon we will witness Philippines is free from this threatening virus.
