Former Senator Antonio Trillanes IV said that people should not condemn the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) violators, believing that they have no choice but to go out of their houses because of some very important reasons.

In his Twitter post, Trillanes listed the possible reason why people were forced to violate the ECQ.

According to him, the violators may be required to go outside because of their work, or they just need to leave their homes because of the hot temperature.

Trillanes even said that some violators have no choice but to stay outside because they’re homeless.

“Ang mga taong nsa labas ng bahay ay di agad pasaway. Bka sila ay: 1. Ppunta o mgtatrabaho sa plengke/ospital 2. Di na mkatiis sa init,sikip ng bahay nila kc wla silang aircon/garden gaya ng mga maykaya sa buhay. 3. Sa lansangan sila nktira,” Trillanes said.

“Bottomline, wag kayo mainis agad sa kanila,” he added.

Followers of Trillanes agreed with the former Senator’s thoughts.

“Tama po para kme nasa oven… Tapos syempre nahanap din pag kuhaan ng makakain,” netizen @Mahirapangbuha1 said.

“Sa wakas,… May nasabi ka rin tama! Para sa lahat.. di puro ka nalang sat sat na wala ka naman ginawa para sa pangkalahatang tulong man lang sa mga tao,” netizen @hbenito040418 commented.

“Pwede nila subukan na sa kwarto lang sila mag stay, walang labasan, 24/7 for 30 days. Kahit may aircon, tv, netflix at food, palagay ko, lalabas din sila at maglalagi naman sa sala or veranda. Palagay ko lang ha. Check your privileges before tagging people pasaway,” netizen @3samuels remarked.

Philippine National Police, on April 10 recorded 99,326 violators of ECQ.

Of that number, 58,051 were from Luzon; 18,124 came from Visayas; and 23,151 were from Mindanao.

To address the rising numbers of violators, President Rodrigo Duterte announced a martial law-like implementation of the ECQ rules.

The President also said that people caught gambling or drinking should not hope from any assistance from the government.

“Yung kayo nagsasabong at nag-iinuman, ibig sabihin may pera kayo. Do not expect any help from me. Sabihin ko talaga, sorry na lang,” Duterte said.

“May pera pala kayong pangsabong, may pera pala kayong pang-inom, di ibigay ko na lang [sa iba]. There’s not enough (aid) to go around. Di talaga magkasya. We’re getting low sa supply ng pagkain. Ilang araw na ‘yung buong Pilipinas pinapakain mo,” he added.
