The medical community, particularly in the NCR and nearby regions has fired the distress flare so to speak, asking the government to impose ECQ, jus for two weeks to give them breathing air amid the rising cases of covid in Metro Manila.
In a joint statement, the Philippine College of Physicians wrote to President Duterte.
“We propose that the two-week ECQ be used as a “time out” to refine our [COVID-19] pandemic control strategies, addressing urgent problems.”
On that note, radio host Mark Lopez wrote an open letter, appealing to President Duterte to give a listen to the plea of the medical community in the NCR and nearby provinces.
Lopez explained the aim of the medical frontliners, which is to slow down the number of cases and to prevent the hospitals and health centers from getting overwhelmed.
So to give the medical frontliners the necessary break, people need to stay at their homes for 2 weeks.
Now, Lopez asked why people go out? Because they they need to work for their survival.
Lopez went on to articulate the ideal response of the government to stop people from going out if and when ECQ 2.0 returns, that is to make people look at ECQ 2.0 as an incentive to stay at home for 2 weeks and not as a threat.
So what are the incentives?
Please continue reading below for Mark Lopez’s detailed explanation how to make ECQ 2.0 effective and succeed!
Mayor President Rody Duterte,
Dito po sa panawagan ng mga doktor at medical frontliners, ang aim nila is mapa slow down lang ang infections at para hindi ma overwhelm ang mga ospital and health centers.
So ang kinakailangan po eh dapat ang mga tao, mag stay home muna for 2 weeks.
Ngayon, bakit ho ba sila lumalabas na ngayon? Kasi ho kailangan naman nila ituloy ang hanap buhay for survival din.
Siguro po ang ideal na tugon ng gobyerno para huwag muna lumabas ang mga tao eh hindi threat ng lockdown kundi INCENTIVE PARA TUMIGIL MUNA SA BAHAY kahit TWO WEEKS.
Ngayon, ano po puede INCENTIVE?
Baka puede po SAGUTIN NA NG GOBYERNO O KAUSAPIN NG GOBYERNO NA ILIBRE MUNA ANG UTILITIES SA MGA HOUSEHOLD, meaning KURYENTE, TUBIG, AT INTERNET. BIGYAN DIN NG AUTOMATIC SUBSIDY AND LOAD, OR TANGGALIN DIN MUNA ANG DATA CAP.
Ang para po matugunan ang problema sa pagkain, MAGBIGAY NA PO NG FOOD VOUCHERS for FOOD DELIVERY sa bahay din.
Ipatawag nyo na po sa Malacañang ang mga UTILITY COMPANIES, AND FOOD MANUFACTURERS LIKE SMC ROBINA ETC.
Sila na ho ang bigyan natin ng burden to help you in government take care of the people in their homes.
At least pag sila lang po kausap nyo, mas madali na ang execution, at derecho talaga ang benefit sa mga tao. Wala pang corruption o red tape from government. Immediate na ang assistance.
Siguro po, na gets nyo naman what I am suggesting and how it can be immediately adopted.
Sana po ma consider.
