A Mistrustful Turn

The covid-19 pandemic can bring out the best and worst among people. Being extra-conscious of handwashing, wearing facemasks, and staying indoors for quarantine are tests of patience and mindfulness for many citizens. Unfortunately, the virus does not discriminate in choosing the victims and regardless of one’s work, one can catch the virus. These days, anyone can be a carrier and infect an unsuspecting victim who does not adhere to protocols.

According to the grapevine Industry Icon (II) has been quite paranoid at possible incidents that might bring the virus to her. Thus, when Her Helper (HH) coughed and sneezed while cleaning, II stopped and stared at HH. The stare meant II already suspected HH as a carrier.

HH reasoned that dust got into her, which was why she coughed and sneezed. II would not listen to the explanation and immediately told HH to return to the province. HH said that going home would be impossible due to quarantine rules. II did not let that excuse affect her decision. She said her age and condition make her a prime candidate to catch the virus. She did not want to compromise her health.

Having no choice, HH left and stayed with a friend. Together, they went to the health center to verify the suspicion of II. At the center, HH was able to be tested and advised to stay in home quarantine until the results are returned. HH followed the instruction. After a few days, the result turned out negative and HH was happy that she was going to be fine, but sad because she no longer has work.

Meanwhile, II started showing possible symptoms of the virus and decided to undergo testing to appease her mind. The result turned out positive and she was confined at a hospital. However, she instructed that her condition should not be revealed to the public.

II is recovering well and will soon be discharged. When II found out about the negative covid-19 result of HH, she told her to come back. HH refused to return, as she had already found work with a family who took pity on her for being driven away by II.

  9. Hindi niya man lang naisip kung saan titira yung tao nung pinaalis nya. Pero mabuti na din pala na umalis sa HH kasi baka nahawa pa sya nung matapobreng II kung nagstay pa siya dun.

  11. Gets ko naman praning ang mga tao these days. Pero mali naman yung pauwiin sa probinsya yung kasambahay eh naka-ECQ nga tayo. It doesn't take a genius to figure out na impossible yun. Mabuti at may friend syang natuluyan. At mabuti rin may ibang pamilya nag-offer na ng trabaho sa kanya. Sa panahon ng krisis lumalabas din talaga ang tunay na kulay ng isang tao. Instead na dalhin sa ospital yung kasambahay at ipa-quarantine, pinalayas. So there, bumalik kay amo ang ginawa nya.
