  • A year into the global COVID-19 pandemic, we still find ourselves dealing with a heartbreaking surge that has affected whole families — even neighborhoods — faster than anyone could ever expect. The country has officially reached more than a million recorded cases, and the fear becomes gripping every day.

    Just a few days ago, the Department of Health (DOH) announced that it is creating home care kits for patients who have mild symptoms or asymptomatic cases who have been advised by doctors to recover at home. But as hospitals remain overwhelmed, families also need a game plan should their household be infected by the virus.

    Directory of COVID-19 Resources

    With this, many have taken the initiative of collecting helpful information under a COVID-19 Bayanihan Resources file that we combed through to check the most active, responsive, and recommended names on the list.
