  1. Very sad. They are the unsung heroes. I feel like we need to appreciate them more.

    1. Covid e sakit ng mayayaman. Mga mayayamang bansa ang mga nangunguna at nagpapaligsahan sa Death toll. Italy - 1, USA - 2, Spain - 3, China - 4. Kung mapapansin niyo din ito yung mga bansang sumakop sa atin.

  2. I agree. Living in Toronto does not spare us from the virus. Like what I said b4 sa comment about bashing duterte, we are in a first world country but still nahihirapan and we need disiplina. We do not complain or bash our Prime minister. Listen and support lang kc wala nman maitutulong kung mag ccomplain. We are just glad na the government supports us financially bec of lockdown. Increase child benefits, gst and hst, may emergency fund. How come Canada government can afford the budget? Kc we pay our taxes and due diligence. Kc hndi nacorrupt. And my disiplina ang Canadians.

    1. It’s not about blaming mr President. IF ONLY nakinig sila sa ibang news ng other countries at hindi nagpetix sana hindi lumala ang case dito. Sabi nya wag katakutan ang covid. Fine. Hindi diniretso ang travel ban- kasi daw walang case dito. So ano nangyari? Halos lahat ng naunang nagka covid is with travel history. We listened, we kept ourselves safe, we disciplined ourselves too. Pero if there would one thing we will regret, un yung sana sa mismonb presidente na ang desisyon na travel ban, DOH din. Philippines isn’t ready for this pandemic, sana lang bago isisi sa mga tao, isipin din baket may nakapasok na sunod sunod dito. And guess what sis, 4 sa village namin may covid all had travel history.

    3. I am also from Canada. I have also been very vocal about the bashing’s against Duterte and the apparent non mass testing sa Pinas. I’ve been telling my friends in the Philippines that even industrialized and first world countries are or were not prepared. Mas maswerte pa nga yata ang Pinas kasi Di ba merong mass testing na this mid April? We don’t have any in Canada but I am not complaining. I think our government is just trying to cope up and what is more important is that politics has taken a backseat.

    4. 2:04 - you are dead wrong kung sa tingin mo mas "maswerte" sa Pilipinas. Walang mass testing sa Canada kasi they are saving it for those who have symptoms. Unlike sa Pilipinas na sa dami ng tao, mahirap i-enforce ang social distancing kung nakatira ka sa barong barong at dikit dikit kayong magkakapitbahay. And until na-implement ang mass testing, wag muna tayong umasa because this government has failed us so many times.

    5. Totoo 1151. Italy nga ang daming namatay hindi nman nanawagan ang mga citizen na magresign ang presidente/pm ba? nila. Sa atin ang daming gustong magmarunong. Hay, dami pang matitigas ang ulo.

    6. Im work in UK at ang problema dito ay di proper ang PPE paiba iba ng guidelines pag naka ilang days na ang pasyente na positive normal na plastic apron at surgical na mask na lng ang pinapagamit nila kahit nag uubo pa ang pasyente. First world na ito pero sobrang tipid din sa PPE

    7. 11:51 If you only know the changes the government made because of those 'complaints'
      Iba ang gobyerno dito - gusto magvolunteer lang ang mga frontliners, ang ayuda nasa week2 na ng quarantine wala pa rin etc. People need to speak up kasi kung hindi mamamatay na lang ang Pilipino sa kapabayaan.

      Ang masasabi kong napansin kong positive, the government listens to complaints, and they correct things kung kaya pa. Pag nagtrending sila, they don't automatically dismiss, kasi sinasagot naman nila at hinahanapan ng paraan kahit papano.

    8. Yung mga elitista at mga pa-woke kasi dito sa Pinas, feeling nila nasa first world country sila. Dapat first class daw ang serbisyo, at dapat lahat ng gusto at kailangan nila nakahain agad. Yung mga taong puro hanash at makabatikos lang sa gobyerno sa halip na maki-cooperate. Yung mga taong walang ginawang tama si Duterte para sa kanila.

    9. I was never fan of Duterte too but I was really impressed the way he is handling this crisis.Very low death rate to think PHILIPPINES is a third word country.Im a nurse here in UK and I wanted to quit work since Im worried sick for my life of getting infected but on other hand I feel bad running away just to save myself.I wish I wake up from this nightmare soon.God bless Philippines and keep safe everyone.

    10. 5:00 pm well until now wala tayong pandemic curve so hindi viable pa din kung good yan death rate na yan. Sa cases versus death and recovery we are in the end of the line. Kaya its to be early to say it since wala naman tayong data

    11. Paano hindi mapayapa mga Pilipino at binabash si Duterte, compared sa ibang bansa may ginagawa at ikinovommunicate mga ginagawa para sa kaligtasan ng bawat isa. May nakita ka bang dineploy mga sundalo agad? Dapat nangunguna si Duterte na nagaassure hindi nananakot.

    12. "Increase child benefits, gst and hst, may emergency fund. How come Canada government can afford the budget? Kc we pay our taxes and due diligence." -- and this is why you dont complain and we DO. Kasi parehas lang tayong nagbabayad ng taxes and all, pero bakit kami dito walang ganyang benefits? May pondo, pero misallocation lagi. Yung kakaunting naallocate, ipagpapatayan mo pa makuha. May rules na pag nakatira sa subdivision, automatic hindi kasama sa ayuda/relief. Bat ganun? Census na gamit 2015 pa. Lalo sa metro manila, mabilis magpalit ng tirahan ang mga renter. Pano kung subdivision pero outskirts like Rizal? Eh di hamak na mura dun. Tapos pano kung split pa with other families/people? Kahit hindi mayaman, afford na tumira sa ganun, bakit yun ang basis ng exclusion? Super outdated ang system. Nagkakaroon pa tuloy ng class war ngayon. Poor vs poorest of the poor nagpapasiklaban sino ang mas mahirap, sino lang ang dapat bigyan.

    13. Pinas testing numbers are very small given that the country's population is large at more than 110 million. Only a few thousands have been done so far, so statistics are very unreliable. Much more cases are not being detected, and many more deaths from covid are not being counted because they die at home.

  3. My gahd! This is it na talaga! Nagbago na ang mundo. Nakakalula. Ayaw ko na maging maluho. Panahon na para maging maingat sa pag gastos at dapat optimize lahat ng resources. Dapat walang masayang. I'm doing this so I can also help out my family and whoever else I can. Gising na ako! This pandemic has changed everything. The world will never go back to the way it was before.

    1. amen to optimize all resources and not waste anything. hindi natin alam kung gaano pa katagal to, vaccine may take 12-18 months, might be longer for us since we live in a poor and corrupt third world country. whatever you have, save it for your family. What you have now in excess might help you and your family survive a few months from now. Mahirap umasa sa mga ayuda. Stock up for your family and save whatever Is remaining for what’s to come.

      Somehow, if it comes to that, this will be Survival of the fittest. Wala kami sa pockets of poverty, pero hindi din kami ganun kayaman, pero we are preparing for the worst. And giving out anything now to non-family might affect our chances of survival in the coming months, if this gets worse. Pinagdadasal ko lang na wala sana magkasakit sa amin. Malalagpasan natin to, we just have to be smart, eat right, and pray for excellent immune system and good health.

    2. Realization hits me big time! Everything on this earth is just temporary nD mo alam in the blink of an eye you’re gone. This Covid has no cure 1 no one can save us but God above. Repent and accept Jesus as your personal Lord & Saviour. He died & raised again for us sinners .,

  4. Me too nars dito sa abroad. Kahit panay ang support ng mga management Pati government. Parang ang low ng morale. Very tiring talaga dahil iniisip Na paano Kung ako Na nga next fatal victim nitong Covid 19. Tuloy Lang ang prayers. Malaking bagay ang faith sa Diyos.sa lahat ng medical workers Pati ng mga janitorial jobs sa mga hospitals. (Exposed din sila.)... kapit lang lahat.

  5. Ako din bawasan ko na shopping ko at ipon at ipon para merong padala more sa Pinas laki pa naman ng pamilya ko. Kahit anong padala kulang sa dami nila pero kailangan. Lord tapusin mo na itong problema kawawa ang mga walang wala. Amen

    1. Kawawa ka naman, 1:25. Sana wag ka magkasakit for the sake of your big family here na umaasa sayo. Good thing we learned last year kung sino lang ang tunay na family ang turing sa amin. Yung hindi lang nandyan pag may kailangan. Kaya ngayon, we can conserve our resources until this pandemic ends, which according to studies, earliest will be early next year, that is if may vaccine na by that time. Keep safe, 1:25.

    2. Sorry ha.. pero buong pamilya mo umaasa sayo? You have a big family yet not one of them has income or savings for times like this? Pasensya ka na 1:25. Naawa at medyo nagulat ako sa comment mo. Parang you have to carry all the burden sa gitna ng crisis na ito.

    3. Curious lang ako sis 1:25, sa laki ng pamilya mo, ikaw lang ang inaasahan? Kung ganyan nga, kahit siguro sumuka ka ng dugo hindi matatapos ang problema mo sa pagsustento kung ikaw lang aasahan.

    4. 2:54, baka mga estudyante pa mostly ang mga members sa family ni 1:25. Naranasan ko na rin iyan, sabay-sabay nag college mga pamangkin ko tapos minsan may mga nagkakasakit pa, kaya hirap mga kapatid ko na pag-aralin mga anak nila. Since nakaka-angat naman ako sa buhay, tumulong rin ako. Iniisip ko na lang na masuwerte ako na nakapag-abroad kaya natutuwa na rin ako na nakakatulong.

    5. Agree. I hope OFWs who shoulder all expenses of their loved ones back home stay healthy for their families. Pero it’s Filipino mentality to rely heavily on families abroad. My cousins ask me for gifts all the time pero I’ve learned to say no. I told my dad that I’m only giving money if someone is sick or if it’s for my grandmothers.

      Sana In the future matuto ang iba to earn their own income.

    6. 10:33 I agree. Hindi porket nasa abroad, madami ng pera. Hindi sila atm. My mother lives abroad, but never kami nag-ask financially sa kanya. We only get gifts pag birthday and christmas, samantalang yung iba namin na kamaganak, akala mo may patago. Maya’t maya may sakit si ganito, gipit si ganyan. I hope my mom learns to say no too. Hindi sa pagdadamot, pero nung kami ang wala, wala man lang nakaalala mangamusta. So I learned to only rely on myself and just funnel all our resources within our family. Malalaman mo talaga kung sino ang family sa oras na konti lang pera mo.

    7. Kawawa ka naman 1:25. Big family ba kayo meaning madami kang kapatid na mga bata pa, o kasama na dyan ang mga anak at apo ng mga pinsan at kapatid mo? If If it’s the latter, then you need to learn to say no. Paano pag may nangyari sayo dyan tapos wala ka halos savings dahil sa kakapadala mo sa kanila? Eh di lahat kayo nganga. Very toxic ang ganyang set up. Parang ginawa ka na lang milking cow.

  6. Ugali na po nang pinoy ang mag comment talaga... halintulad nayan sa Covid 19.... walang gamot....Sad

  7. No one is ready. Thats true but i think marvins sister is “hirap” not because of covid but because she doesn’t like what she’s doing based on what she said “even before covid” pa. So for marvin to say na hirap na hirap parang misconstrued naman. I also work in the medical field most of testing are cancelled they are only taking URGENT cases bec of this covid. Wala nga halos gnagawa kc they are waiting getting ready for the surge of covid. Like i said no one is ready none is prepared.

  8. Oo nga pero bakit parang mayaman na CoViD patient lang ang tinatanggap sa mga hospital dito sa Pinas? Pag tingin nila mahirap hindi tinatanggap? Like yung case nung nanay na umiiyak na may kasamang bata na may mask na ubo ng ubo at 3 days ng hindi kumakain, wala daw hospital public or private na tumanggap sa kanila. Ano to, pili nalang ang i.save nila?

    1. Kahit s Canada they will just ask you to stay home and isolated, ganun din s Italy Kaya nga me namamatay S loob ng bahay db., kc d lahat Pede I admit

    2. Yes, only the sickest are admitted. Otherwise hindi kakayanin ng healthcare system ng mga bansa like Canada kung lahat ng may symptoms eh maaadmit sa ospital.

  9. Yon nga Filipino n nurse sa London namatay na magisa sa bahay nya na ka self isolation sabi mild lng ang symptoms tapos nakuta na lng na patay na ng pinasok na ng mga pulis sa bahay nya

  10. No nation is ever prepared for this even the powerful countries. Stop blaming the president of the Philippines as we know he's trying his best. We are lucky we have locked down at an early stage. What we need now is the control of this virus to spread,so better stay at home.
