Most of our medical frontliner pleaded to revert back to ECQ as a breather to our healthcare system. During a press conference with the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Dr. Jose Santiago, the President of the Philippine Medical Association, said that “we proposed that this ECQ be used as a time out to refine our pandemic control strategies, addressing the following urgent conditions: hospital workforce efficiency, failure of case finding and isolation, failure of contract tracing and quarantine, transportation safety, workplace safety, public compliance with self-protection, social amelioration.” While the frontliners admit that reverting back to an Enhanced Community Quarantine is a complex decision, Dr. Santiago added that “Let us remember that we need healthy people to reinvigorate the economy. Our healthcare workers can no longer bear the burden of deciding who lives and who dies.” The recurring call of our frontliners has always been: “pagod na pagod na kami.” To sum it all up, everyone is getting tired of our battle against the virus. But we cannot stop.
The number of positive coronavirus cases keeps on rising. It is getting more and more alarming by the day. In fact, as of August 6, 2020, the Philippines is now the first among countries in Southeast Asia with the most number of cases. Our frontliners are getting overwhelmed and tired. It is time for us to up our game and help them too.
Stay home. The most effective way we can help our nurses and doctors is to make sure we do not catch the virus. Let us not add more to the rising figures. Instead, we should consciously choose to stay home and regularly clean and disinfect our surroundings. The virus is said to be able to survive on surfaces for days. So make sure that your house is not only squeaky clean but also thoroughly disinfected. By choosing to stay home, we are lessening our chance of catching the virus and in turn, is making sure that our family is safe.
Always wear masks, face shields, and keep the social distancing. These three steps are the core of our fight against the virus. It is undeniable that there are times that we have to go out of the house to do something important. When we do, we must always remember these three core things to do.
