Kung nagkaka-ubusan ng mga face mask sa ilang medical supply stores, isang tindahan sa Bambang, Maynila ang namigay ng libreng face mask sa mga tao.
Ginawa ito ng tinadahang Medical Depot matapos ideklara ng Department of Health (DOH) na mayroon nang unang kaso ng coronavirus sa bansa.
“The confirmed case arrived in the Philippines from Wuhan, China via Hongkong last January 21,2020. The patient sought consult and was admitted in one of the country’s government hospital last January 2 after experiencing mild cough. She is currently asymptomatic, which means she has no fever and no other signs or symptoms suggesting illness at this point… I assure the public that the DOH is on top of this evolving situation. We were able to detect the first confirmed case because of our strong surveillance system, close coordination with the World Health Organization and other national agencies… We are also implementing measures to protect the health staff providing care to these patients,” sabi ni Health Secretary Duque.
Ang nasabing medical supply store ay matatagpuan sa Bambang, Manila.
