In the meantime, Ruby Rodriguez is grateful to everyone who has touched her family with the passing of her sister Dra. Sally Gatchalian after the COVID-19 fight.

Sadly, Ruby admitted that she could not find the brother's remains because of the strict burial policy of the COVID-19 victims.

In his text message, they had to follow government protocols.

“As per DOH cremation, from hospital, pick up body straight cremate then deliver to family. No one is allowed to open body bag. No family allowed in cremation, ”Ruby said.

The host-actress also added to her text that she was knocked out starting tonight or that the final arrangements with the brother were open because Gatchalian's family was quarantined.

“Cremation team onsite, waiting for the body maybe 5-6 p.m., I dont know really. Husband in quarantine same hospital 'coz he watches. Her son, my nephew, in another house, so I have to fix everything, ”Ruby added.

The medical community and other sectors praised Gatchalian's sacrifice and heroism in the fight against COVID-19.
