[RANT POST] “TIMEOUT” – FRONTLINERS CRY FOR HELP

I was not supposed to post two blog entries in a day but this is something that I just needed to get off my mind.

I’m writing this because the current situation of our health care system is alarming and for my fellow countrymen in the Philippines if this distress call from our modern heroes doesn’t worry you— it should.

Health care system in the Philippines are now overwhelmed by the increasing number of COVID cases with over 5,000 daily confirmed cases, and now Philippines has over 100,000 cases. Now, medical frontliners are calling for help and wanting the country to go on another lockdown for at least 2 weeks to regroup and rethink their strategy on how to handle this pandemic.

Okay, this is sad and alarming. This made me more scared because our health care system is our armor during this pandemic and now that they are close to giving up, it’s like the hope for fighting and ending this virus is far from being achieved. It also made me more angry to the government, and for all the time that they wasted on other irrelevant issues during this crisis. Like, passing anti-terror law which violates the constitution and rights of Filipinos. They also focused more on the franchise renewal of one of the country’s largest TV network. Imagine if they focused more on the actual biggest problem here which is COVID-19 and not them creating laws to stop criticisms towards the government or using political power to get revenge. Now, the country cannot afford another lockdown. I am so furious because we had gone through that lockdown for almost 3 months and the government didn’t do anything at that time to find a solution. Like, mass testing and contact tracing, instead they used that time to make a move on their political agenda which is to make the current administration more in control and powerful. What also makes me furious with the country’s current situation is that a lot of my fellow countrymen are not furious as I am. They still support what this failing administration is doing, even if they are being fooled right in their face, they still turn a blind eye and just support the president. They are not a Filipino, they are fans. They idolized this current president that they are becoming ignorant to the country’s situation.

Now, our doctors and nurses are exhausted because the government didn’t prioritize the solution to the biggest problem that the country is facing. What will happen to us? I don’t know but I pray that we all get through this together.

I am praying for all the medical frontliners, give them strength and patience to face this pandemic. I am praying for their safety.

To all the frontliners around the world. We are all thankful for what you are doing for your country, you are indeed our modern heroes.

  1. Agree on this. I don’t know why our Government spent so much of their time with the franchise renewal. In fact, dapat nga mas sinilip nila ang charges ng Meralco Bill na nakakaiyak para doon sa ibang consumer na hindi afford magbayad ng ganong bill. Hahaha, mapapamura ka na lang talaga 😦

  2. India has the same situation. India is no. 3 in the world in Corona cases, but govt is not doing anything. Govt act irresponsibly in the initial phase of Corona when it should have taken strict actions to prevent Corona from spreading in India. When people question govt, blind and dumb followers of the ruling party start trolling people and declare them anti-national. Also, puppet media is engaging people in nonsense and unimportant issues instead of questioning the govt. India is dooming. Until people don’t raise the voice, these governments will keep fooling people. I am glad that you are not like blind followers. Keep questioning and raising your voice.
