Quarantine Update: DOT sets bus routes for health workers around Metro Manila

The Department of Transportation (DOTr) has allotted buses for all health workers who are tirelessly working in order to treat those who have been affected by CoVID-19. The buses provided are free of charge and will transport frontliners to their designated hospitals. This is in response to the struggle of doctors and nurses, including vendors and patients to get to their respective destinations because of the lack of transportation following the enhanced community quarantine placed over the whole of Luzon.

 

These are the bus routes of the DOTr buses in Metro Manila:

DOTr assures that the bus services will follow health protocols such as social distancing, body temperature checks, and regular sanitation and disinfection of the buses.

The Philippine government has placed the entire Luzon island under an enhanced community quarantine after the rise in infection cases–there are 187 confirmed cases, as of writing. This means that all forms of public transportation are suspended at this time. The national government assured the public that protocols and guidelines are in place to address the needs of every citizen. The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) is likewise mandated to do scenario building and long-term contingency plans during the crisis.

My Pope is reminding everyone to be responsible and to stay safe during these trying times.
