Proud brother flexes photo of specialist doctor sister and frontliner in battle vs covid-19, shows public ways how they can contribute too

In the battle against this menacing covid-19 virus, we Filipinos each have roles to play if we hope to defeat this virus quickly.

This brings me to the FB post of a very thoughtful brother named J Meinard Nepomuceno who flexed the photo of his sister in socmed, a specialist doctor working in the frontline in the battle against covid-19.

“Sya po si Marisse, kapatid ko po sya. Isa syang Infectious Disease specialist at isa lamang sa mga doctor at nurses na tumitingin at nag-aalaga sa mga pasyenteng may COVID 19.”

J Meinard Nepomuceno described his sister as intelligent, hardworking and compassionate. He said behind the mask is a pretty face who rarely catches a wink because she’s too busy taking care of covid-19 patients. A superwoman if you will. However, even superwoman like his sister, gets tired too. He used this occasion to appeal to the public to do their part well, as a way of helping the doctors and healthcare workers in the frontline.

“Maliban sa matalino, masipag at may malasakit. Maganda din sya, hindi lang halata ngayon kasi nakamask sya lagi saka halos wala nang tulog. Nakangiti pa naman sya sa ilalim ng kanyang mask. Pero sana tulungan din natin sya at ang iba pang medical professionals.”

How? J Meinard went on to elaborate how the public can help our frontliners by following the steps he outlined below.

Kahit hindi doctor, may pwedeng maitulong pa:

– social distancing: pag walang importanteng lakad e wag na kayo lumabas ng bahay; wag na lumabas sa bahay ang may edad >60 o yung may mga ibang sakit (ex. diabetis); work from home kung kaya; wag na tayong makulit

– self quarantine: yung mga umuwi sa probinsya galing sa NCR saka yung may mga nararamdamang sintomas (lagnat, ubo, diarrhea, atbp.), manatili nlng sa isang kwarto at wag na muna lumapit sa mga kasama sa bahay sa susunod na 14 na araw.

– frequent and proper handwashing: maghugas ng kamay parati gamit ang sabon at tubig; pwede din alcohol

– cough etiquette: takpan ang bibig at ilong kapag uubo

– be educated and updated: sundan yung mga announcements at payo ng DOH at mga medical centers; kung may tamang kaalaman, walang magpapanic

– prayers: ipagdasal po natin na mabigyan pa ng lakas at patuloy na kalusugan ang lahat ng medical personnel at iba pang mga tao na nagtutulong-tulong para maalagaan ang mga pasyente, may virus man o wala; ipagdasal na mahinto na ang pagkalat ng virus sa pamamagitan ng pagsunod sa mga nakasulat sa taas

J Meinard Nepomuceno is also a doctor and consultant of the top hospitals in the country, including the National Kidney Institute, Delos Santos Medical Center and UERMMC.
