Bacolod doctor asks gov’t: Kung walang PPE, kabaong na lang!


A frustrated doctor from Bacolod City had a dire message to the government as medical frontliners continue to battle COVID-19 without the right armor.

Dr. Julius Drilon has grown irked with the limited supply of personal protective equipment which are a must for any doctor, nurse, and hospital staff treating coronavirus patients. The man vented out on Facebook, saying: “Kung wala kayong PPE na maibigay sa amin, pwede kabaong na Lang??? Maka-save pamilya namin.”

His threat was serious, as hospitals from all over the country have been reporting doctors and nurses getting infected and eventually succumbing to the disease.

Drilon’s other plea: mass testing ASAP.
