Philippines, 9 Doctor die from COVID19 - GazeFeed


The death toll of COVID19 is continuing to rise, nine doctors are now dead due to COVID19. The lack of cooperation of its people is the main reason why the death toll of front-liners are still rising. The country's top medical association said Thursday, as hospitals were overwhelmed and medics complained about a lack of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE), which causes our front-liners to be more exposed with the viral disease. 

Reports said, that our health crisis in Philippines is much worse than being officially reported, with the confirmed virus death toll at just 38. 

Medics and healthcare workers also urge the 55 million individuals under home-quarantine to strictly stay at their homes that there could be possible surge in cases. 

The Philippine Medical Association (PMA) said that on the latest death record, Thursday, a doctor had die of the virus. Which concludes to our lack of PPEs. 


"If it were up to me, test the frontliners first and test them again after seven days. Doctors could be carriers themselves," Benito Atienza, vice president of the Philippine Medical Association told AFP.

Three of Manila's biggest hospitals also announced that their facilities are now completely utilized in which they will no longer accept new cases of corona-virus. 

Thus, hundreds of medical workers and staffs are no longer accepting patients of the said virus because they are undergoing a 14-day self-quarantines after suspected. 

Under 2,000 of people had been tested in the Philippines as of Tuesday from those persons with severe symptoms and especially those with most vulnerable to COVID-19, such as elderly, those with life-threatening ailments, and pregnant women.
