With the pandemic that we are facing right now, what are you doing as a concern citizen to help solve the invisible enemy? DOH had been calling healthcare workers to volunteer to help with this crisis. The decision of responding on that call is risking their own life for the others welfare. 

Reported on Saturday,brave individuals and modern heroes reach up to 593 health warriors (as of 6pm this Saturday) to help fight the deadly disease. They have been supporting the Department of Health as the number of cases in the Philippines continue to rise. According to Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire, they signed up and will be distributed in the three different government hospitals assigned by the Department of Health (DOH) for the COVID-19 patients. The Philippine General Hospital in Manila, the Jose M. Rodriguez Memorial Hospital in Caloocan City, and the Lung Center of the Philippines in Quezon City are the three hospitals mentioned by Vergeire. 

The DOH will implement a "two-weeks-on, two-weeks-off" policy for the volunteers. As explained by Vergeire, those volunteer frontliners will undergo a two-weeks of quarantine after serving the COVID-19 patients for two-weeks. 

"Sa bawat dalawang linggong duty, ang healthcare worker ay kailangang sumailalim sa two-week qurantine period pagkatapos," she explained. 

As of Saturday, the total number of COVID-19 cases reached 1,075 with 68 deaths and 35 recoveries.

These brave modern heroes deserve to be praised. They are not after of money in responding to the call of the DOH. They are willing to sacrifice their lives in service of their fellow Filipino suffering from that highly infectious disease. Taking yourself up to volunteer in that call is a big decision not just for the healthcare worker but also including their families.
