A lady has gone viral on social media after she was spotted not wearing a face mask inside a public utility vehicle in Cagayan De Oro.
Amid the pandemic happening in the country, netizen Daniza Salvadora was surprised that some people were still refusing the worn mask like the lady she encountered while traveling last Tuesday.
Salvadora narrated that some passengers tried to remind the lady to wear a face mask.
“I just want to share my alarming experience today. While naka sakay ako ng jeep going to ayala passing through Marcos bridge around 3:30pm. May sumakay na babae na wala suot na facemask!!” said Salvadora.
After being reminded, the lady suddenly fumed and criticized the passengers for questioning her decision not to wear a mask.
She even confronted one of the passengers, a senior citizen, and told her not to interfere with her decision.
“Wag kang makialam. Alangan umuwi pa ako o bumili ng facemask at makipag siksikan sa madaming tao?” the lady told the old passenger.
Salvadora expressed sadness over the treatment received by the elderly woman from the lady.
“Naawa ako sa ginawa niya kay Nanay. Concern lang naman ito sa lahat ng pasahero pati na rin sa protocol na kailangan sundin sa lungsod. Wala siya rason at karapatan para umakto ng ganun,” she said.
Because of her uncontrollable attitude, the driver and the passengers decided to force the lady to leave the jeepney.
Salvadora then reminded the netizens to be vigilant amid the pandemic.
“If any of you nakaencounter ng ganitong situation, please vigilant. Tulungan natin ang ating syudad sa Cagayan de oro na makaiwas sa pandemia. Di ito laro laro lamang,” she said.
As of writing, the video of Salvadora received 4,000 shares.
The city government of Cagayan De Oro has yet to comment on the incident.
