A Filipina residing in Italy, the country with the second-largest cases of COVID-19 urged the people living in the Philippines to cooperate with the government.

On a viral Facebook post, Jaya Sto. Domingo said that while it’s a little bit too late, they still obeyed the Italian government when they already decided to implement a lockdown to prevent the spread of the virus.

She described their current situation in Italy as “not easy”.

“9-10K na ang infected dito sa Italy nung nag declare ng lockdown ang Gobyerno. Late na right? Pero without a word, sumunod agad lahat, walang reklamo, walang kung ano-ano. Soldiers are everywhere, kung lalabag ka, multa ka!!!” Sto. Domingo said.

“Schools are suspended, maraming nawalan ng negosyo, maraming natanggal sa trabaho! Nagkukulang na nga kami sa Vitamin D. But we are submitting to the authorities. Supermarkets and pharmacies lang ang bukas dito,” she added.

She questioned why Filipinos seem not cooperating with the government despite the fact that the Philippines acted earlier than Italy after it decided to implement a community quarantine in Metro Manila.

Sto. Domingo also addressed the youth reminding them that despite having stronger immune system, they may still become a carrier of the virus and spread it to their older family members.

“Sa Pinas, 98 persons infected, inaagapan na agad ng Gobyerno, and dami paring reklamo? Friends, hindi ko kayo ma-gets. Onting appreciation at cooperation naman dyan… Kung ma-infect tayo ng COVID-19, okay lang, kakayanin natin, pero pano nalang yung mga lolo’t lola natin?” 

She urged the Filipino to follow the authorities and avoid complaining about the actions of the government against COVID-19.

“Mahal at kapwa kong mga Pinoy, it’s not the perfect time to blame and hate. Magsawa and mapagod na kayo sa kaka-kontra at kaka-react negatively. Alam kong it’s in our blood hahaha pero, please, tigilan na.” Sto. Domingo said.

“Kung may mali and pagkukulang sila. Edi, okay. Si Lord na bahala dun. C’mon, we have a BIG God! Question is: Are you doing your part?”

Sto. Domingo made the said Facebook post after the government received criticisms from the netizens, especially from the youth.

On Friday, the Kabataan party-list, one of the groups that criticizing the Duterte administration held a rally to express their disappointment to the actions of the government.

“Lima lima lang daw po ang pwedeng sumakay sa tren, pero daan daan nakapila sa labas, napakahusay ng administrasyong Duterte, pangalawa, kumain daw po kami ng masustansya, sa hanay ng maralitang kabataan, saan ho namin kukunin ang pagkain masustansya kung aming magulang mismo ay walang maiuwi,” the activist said.

“Pangatlo, ang pinakamagaling ng administrasyong ito sa mga kabataan, sumunod daw po kami sa mga militar, sa gitna ng krisis sa kalusugan ang kailangan ng kabataan ay pag o-organisa ng mga health workers, ng mga nurse, ng mga doktor hindi ho namin kailangan ng mga pulis at mga militar,” she added.
