There are 10 days to go before the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) is (hopefully!) lifted, but it seems there is still a large number of quarantine violators in the metro, including motorists who try to sneak past checkpoints and go to neighboring cities, as well as residents who engage in activities outside of their homes. But trust Pinoys to find a creative solution to get people to stay at home!
Summit Media photographer Jerome Ascano spotted coffins and a grim reaper around Manila, Mandaluyong, Quezon City, and Parañaque City as a warning for people to stay at home during the ECQ. While it might look and sound morbid, it sends a clear message: the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) can affect anyone and everyone, so you should do your part to curb the spread of the virus and refrain from going outdoors. Have a look:
As of this writing, there are 6,459 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the Philippines with 613 recovered patients and 428 deaths. (For the latest COVID-19 cases, check out our reportr COVID-19 case tracker.) While having COVID-19 is not a death sentence, it is better not to risk your health. Avoid being part of the statistic and stay indoors as much as you can!
Starting April 15, PhilHealth will no longer be able to shoulder the full cost of treatment for COVID-19 patients. Click here for their updated coverage.
