My thoughts: Sa gitna po ng paglaganap ng CoVid19, walang sinoman na nasa matinong pag-iisip ang magnanais na lumabas sa matataong lugar para mahawa at makahawa ng sakit. Alam natin na importante ang social distancing at proper hygiene pero hindi po ito sasapat kung may mga kababayan tayo na kelangang maghanapbuhay bawat-araw para makakain at matustusan ang mga basic needs ng pamilya gaya ng pambayad sa renta, kuryente, tubig, at iba pa. Marami rin po sa kanila ay mga contractual workers, mga self-employed, maliliit na manininda na walang tiyak na kita sa araw-araw at baon sa utang. Kung matitiyak lang po sana ng ating pamahalaan na may financial support para sa kanila, hindi nila kelangang sumugal sa labas. Malaking bagay din kung may temporary stop on amortizations and loans o kahit pagtanggal sa interest & penalties. Sana rin ay magbigay ng consideration ang mga kumpanya ng basic utilities like kuryente at tubig bilang kawang-gawa sa mga mahihirap na apektado ng dislocation sa trabaho. Sa mga companies na tumulong sa mga empleyado, sana bigyan po ng tax break para wag malubog ang mga kumpanya. And also, I hope Philhealth will shoulder treatment for those who have CoVid19. Maraming salamat po sa ating mga public officials, pulis, military, etc na gumagawa at nagpapatupad ng batas para po sa kaligtasan natin. Maraming salamat rin po sa mga totoong IDOL, ang ating mga walang kapagurang health workers. Kaya natin ‘to 🙂

The actress talks about how social distancing and proper hygiene are important during these times. However, she points out that this may not be possible for many people as they still need to go to work to provide for their families.

With this, she asks the government if they could provide financial support for the workers so that fewer people would feel the need to go out. She also hopes that considerations would be given for basic utilities and for a temporary stop on loans and amortizations.

She ends the post by saying thanking the public officials, police, and military who are implementing laws for our safety. She also thanks the real IDOLS, the health workers who continue to tirelessly work amid this crisis.
