ECQ FILES: What the Rain Wrote in March 2020

So kelangan talaga ma-pressure muna ng mga expose and reports from other countries? I think Duque should stop thinking like a politician and be a doctor muna ulit - he's handling this virus the same way the government is currently handling Chinese POGO workers - is that a policy na ba? But that's just my POV. πŸ‘‰πŸ˜‰πŸ‘»


Mar 8

It was already a National Emergency even before the declaration. Alam na ng lahat yun e, sila lang sa taas ang hindi nakakaalam.✌️

From an economic standpoint, the problem with POGO really is policy. If it employs more Filipino workers (80/20 ratio perhaps), if stricter screening process for foreign Nationals working here in the Philippines are in placed, if we have a clear policy on limiting the number of POGO outlets in the country, and if government agencies get off their butts to enforce these policies... Then maybe, we could still have a WIN-WIN situation.

But as a matter of principle, I really don't think we should be HOSTING any forms of legalized gambling from other countries here in the Philippines. Tumataya ako sa lotto minsan, but that's different. PCSO is ours and the fund it generates goes directly to the government and the people. What we get from POGO are just taxes! Ang Pinoy na talagang kumikita lang dyan ay yun mga tao sa taas na may under-the-table. πŸ˜‰✌️

Ang dami nagbago dahil sa covid-19. Pag mahaba pila sa entrance ng malls o buildings, baka daw kasi nasira yun Thermal Scanner (Temperature Gun) - Pano nga kung wala ng stock pampalit? Dampi-dampi na lang o di kaya yun glass thermometer na 1 minute per person? Tapos pag mainit ka bibigyan ka ng Paracetamol, papa-uwiin muna at pababalikin after 3 days para sa next consultation 🀣🀣🀣

*******

Magkakaubusan na din ata ng Infrared Temperature Gun kasi marami balak bumili. Pano ba gagamitin yun?

πŸ‘‰ Pagsakay mo sa Jeep, Bus, Taxi, Grab o LRT babarilin mo muna yun driver at mga pasahero?
πŸ‘‰ Pag may ka meeting o kausap ka, babarilin mo muna yun kakausapin mo?
πŸ‘‰ Babarilin mo lahat ng mga makasalubong mo?
πŸ‘‰ Pano kung lahat tayo meron Temperature Gun so ang eksena sa kalsada lahat nagbabarilan? Ang saya! Sana lagyan ng sound yun baril! 🀣

Don't panic BUT please wag din naman masyadong over confident konting ingat din. I also urge friends on FB to not downplay the covid-19 epidemic (pandemic na pala) by comparing this to other diseases that have high mortality rates. Dengue, HIV and covid-19 are the same! They're all serial killers - why compare strengths? πŸ˜’ We may not be able to totally eradicate this new threat but I am sure that humanity will find a way to co-exist with it.

Buti na lang praktisado na tayo sa social distancing noon pa dahil sa smartphone at internet, di na tayo mahirapan πŸ€ͺ

Naka QUARANTINE din po ang wallet ko from March 15 to April 12 pero pwede pa rin naman magbyahe ang pera papasok lalo na yun galing sa mga magbabayad 😁

Can I share some personal reflections?

In the story of David and Goliath, it is my understanding that David did not defeat Goliath by his sling and stones but with GOD.

"This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you down; and I will give the dead bodies of the host of the Philistines this day to the birds of the air and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel, and that all this assembly may know that God saves not with sword and spear; for the battle is God's, and he will give you into our hand."

I am not sharing this out of fear but only to show with conviction that there is HOPE with GOD. And with GOD nothing is impossible.

Be humble, stand firm, believe! IF we have GOD on our side, we will defeat this Goliath.

Thank you for letting me share this and I do hope it comforts you in this time of great troubles.

STAY AT HOME

πŸ‘‰ Stay At Home - pero may pasok sa trabaho?
πŸ‘‰ Stay At Home - pero no work no pay?
πŸ‘‰ Stay At Home - pero gutom na pamilya mo?

Yun kuda ng kuda dyan sa social media na dapat sumunod na lang ng sumunod sa gobyerno at mahilig magbintang na matitigas kasi ang ulo ng mga Pilipino, alamin nyo muna ang sitwasyon sa mga buhay-buhay ng mga inaakusahan n'yo at kung ano naging tugon ng gobyerno sa kanila kung meron ba. Di po lahat kasing yaman ni Panelo na nakapaghanda para mabuhay ng isang buwan kahit naka Stay-At-Home!

Hindi po lahat ay kasing palad ninyo! πŸ‘Ž

Wala ako nakikitang problema sa presence ng mga enforcers (AFP/PNP) sa kalsada. Mas okay ako kung andyan sila to ensure peace, order and safety especially during these times of great uncertainties πŸ‘

*******

Not sure if this will be feasible pero nag brainstorming kami ng sarili ko dahil wala ako magawa and na imagine namin na baka pwede to. 😁 Gawin kaya natin na temporary city-wide community quarantine to better isolate the virus, faster.

πŸ‘‰ Lockdown should be by City or Municipality, National government to assist with additional emergency funds aside from the calamity funds
πŸ‘‰ Set up borders and check points, mobilize local PNP to enforce lockdown
πŸ‘‰ Strict home quarantine on weekends, curfew hours implemented on weekdays to restrict movements
πŸ‘‰ Suspend inter-city public transportation but allow in-city transportation only on weekdays off curfew hours
πŸ‘‰ Mobilize local government task force for an intensified 24/7 strategic testing and isolation of PUI via zones or districts
πŸ‘‰ Create a central quarantine and treatment facility, appoint only one location to minimize exposure or risk of spreading the virus (in-hospital or in a makeshift quarantine facility like in one covered court)
πŸ‘‰ Provide safety gears to frontliners as well as city service personnels like garbage collectors, street sweepers, and drivers
πŸ‘‰ Work arrangements includes - work from home, stay-in employees, mandatory allowances for employees on forced leave due to the quarantine and lockdown
πŸ‘‰ Only essentials will be open - groceries, drug stores, hardwares, and those in the food and food distribution industry only on weekdays
πŸ‘‰ Strict implementation of social distancing procedures especially in public transportation - offer subsidies on fuel for drivers who's income will be affected and to encourage them to continue their service
πŸ‘‰ Local government task force to distribute masks, alcohol, supplements, medicines and other supplies to households
πŸ‘‰ Suspend all domestic and international flights as well as sea travel except for those carrying goods and essentials
πŸ‘‰ Once cleared, gradual lifting of quarantine will be done: 1) Metro Manila 2) regional 3) resumption of travel by air and sea

Mar 18

GANITO KAMI SA MANILA NGAYON

For all unauthorized (not exempted) individuals who needs to go out to buy food and essentials, please be reminded of the 8am to 10am and 3pm to 5pm window period. Individuals seen out after the window period will be reprimanded. Also, those coming out are mandated to bring with them any form of identification always.

We are cooperating, and also praying that those in authority will be able to handle this crisis fast and effectively so that everything will be back to normal soon.

I don't want to sound ungrateful but WHAT IF instead of offering a 30-day extension on utility bills and bank loans, how about offering to divide and spread the March dues to a 3-month fixed payment scheme added on top of bills due on April, May and June.

Kasi para sa mga walang kikitain ngayong March dahil sa community quarantine, napakabigat kung magpapatong ang dalawang bills sa isang payment period. So parang di ka nga mapuputulan ng tubig, kuryente o internet ngayong March pero sure ako sa April putol yan kasi kulang din ang pambayad mo.

Suggestion lang naman po, baka kaya naman.

Gusto ko sana sabihin na #KapitLang para sa lahat ng tao sa mundo na apektado ng #Covid19 kaso social distancing nga pala tayo πŸ˜’

QUESTION: HOW WOULD YOU KNOW IF METRO MANILA (OR LUZON) IS NOW COVID-19 FREE?

Our baranggay claims that we are SARS CoV 2 FREE and attributes it to the strict implementation of the community lockdown procedures (which is fine) but I wonder how they were able to come out with that conclusion when NO TESTS have been conducted (not even at random) in our place?

Please don't tell me that tests are being done only to PUIs because we have community transmission already.

I remember that CoVid-19 can be asymptomatic - which means that you might be carrying and spreading the virus without you knowing it, right? So what is the state doing to identify SARS CoV 2 positives?

I also remember PDUTs saying that "We have the money" in his speech so I guess we really don't have a problem when it comes to testing kits right?

So there's no reason why we can't provide tests down to the Baranggay level to be sure right?

Kahit one (1) per household so that we can already say which Baranggay, zone or even city is already cleared?

I think now is the best time to do these tests and the clearing since we are on Home Quarantine. Kelan pa gagawin yun tests pag lifted na ang quarantine? πŸ˜’

Also I don't object to politicians being tested for SARS CoV 2 but I wish that they'd do the same down to the grassroots! πŸ‘

I am no expert, that is why I am asking this. Please "school" me.

Yun QUARANTINE PASS pinababayaran ng 25 Pesos sa ilang BGY sa probinsya para daw sa gastos sa papel, printing, etc. - 1/2 kilong bigas na yun ah? 😠

*******

Wala ako problema kung ang laman ng emergency powers ay to give the executive limited authority to realign, reprogram and reallocate GAA 2020 and off-budget non-essential items (around 275B) to address CoVid19. Safeguards are needed nga lang because this will be prone to corruption.

*******

SORRY PERO NA TRIGGER NA KO DITO KAY CAYETANO AND HIS SANCTIMONIOUS BITCHES IN CONGRESS - I need to vent this out here now! Fair Warning! To their mindless supporters and trolls stay the hell out of my page and do your opinion making somewhere else!

CORRECT! NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO POINT FINGERS! We need to help each other this time and do what we can to be able to go through this crisis with the smallest number of lives lost. So please stay at home.

BUT ALSO, if we survive this and when all these are done, it is our duty to make all those who are accountable answer for everything that has happened, because we all know that it is not only the virus that have caused all these deaths. And please don't deny it 'cause there are tons of transcripts to support this and in a clear timeline as well.

As early as the onset of the quarantine, those responsible, with their super effective brainwashing facilities and troll armies, are already making a campaign to pin the spread of the virus to the citizens, calling us undisciplined and uncooperative. A cowardly act to bury their incompetencies, lack of foresight and inaction. But many are awake when all these happened and when this is all over all of you will pay the consequences of your blunders and betrayals.

If not in this world then by the hands of God!

And for the record, we are not staying home for you, we do this because it's the right thing to do!

CoViD-19

Some call it a necessary cleansing for Mother Earth. To me, a humbling realization that even with all our MONEY, POWER, SCIENCE and POLITICS combined we humans are still no match to a single mindless microorganism. History tells us this lesson time and time again, heck we've got a whole library of movies of the same plot. And yet, here we are face to face with something beyond our own understanding again.

GOD is also beyond our own understanding! There's a reason why all these are happening and I believe that God's ways are higher than ours. God is actually our big gun! So right now, I'm putting all my FAITH in him. Not in aliens, technology and definitely not in politicians.

QUESTION:

If Koko (and others like him) by his negligence, was able to infect someone and that person dies - is that MURDER, HOMICIDE or MANSLAUGHTER?

******

Ang daming nagmamahal kay Koko ♥️

I believe in compassion but I also believe that ignorance of the law (or ordinance) excuses no one.

We live in Manila. We are neither Covid-19 Positive, PUI nor PUM but we are told to STAY AT HOME. We haven't been tested yet. We were told to strictly follow that only one representative in the family can go out from 8am to 10am and 3pm to 5pm provided that you bring with you the quarantine pass. We can't even go outside of the City. We also follow a strict curfew that starts at 8pm and anyone caught outside will be taken to a holding area for non-compliance. Social distancing is also observed anywhere. All these we follow for almost two weeks now and we are slowly running out of money since we are also unable to go out and work.

Koko and his family had the privilege of being tested first as a VIP and all he needed to do as a good law-abiding (and responsible) citizen is to stay in the comforts of his own home and wait for the result to come out while he still gets paid like all of you Fs self-entitled, power-tripping supposed-to-be public servants.

So, Dick, Panelo and DOJ! You can just go screw yourselves! If your sons and daughters are working at MMC at the time when the incident happened, I'm sure you fools will issue a different statement!

Alam n'yo kung saan ako nabwi-bwisit? Dun sa mga tao na noon ay kung ikumpara ang CoViD-19 sa ibang mga sakit ay parang kayang-kaya nila labanan to mag-isa.
