Doctor Lectures People of Tarlac Who Reject OFWs from China, Compared Them to Noynoy

A veteran medical practitioner and doctor criticized the people of Capas, Tarlac as she lectured them for rejecting the returning Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) to be quarantined at the Athlete's Village in New Clark City in Capas, Tarlac.


One of the country's most prominent medical expert, Dr. Ethel Pineda couldn't hide her disappointment to the people of Tarlac who opposed the government's plans to quarantined the OFWs from Wuhan in Tarlac and tried to lecture them about the 2019 novel coronavirus.



Dr. Ethel Pineda answered the complaint of the residents of Tarlac one by one, like the people's fear of getting infected despite being far from the Athlete's Village, the lifespan of the virus, the rights of the government to use the facilities in New Clark City and the effects of the quarantine site to the businesses around the municipality.

“Unang-una, educate yourselves. Hindi lilipad sa hangin na hinihinga niyo ang virus mula sa Athlete’s Village.”

“Droplet infection po ito. Ang virus, kung mayroon man ay hanggang 6 feet lamang kung uubo o babahing ang may sakit na wala siyang mask. Sila ay babantayan para hindi makalabas. 14 days lang ang tatagal ng paglagi nila at lalabas na kung walang simptomas.”

“Pangalawa, anong stigma ang pinagsasasabi niyo? Namamatay ang virus pagka nag-disinfect. At sa ilang araw lamang ay namamatay rin itong kusa sa mga surfaces. Mga ignorante rin ang matatakot sa ganyan. Kailangan din nila ng edukasyon.”



“Pangatlo, anong investments ang pinagsasabi niyo? Uunahin niyo pa ang mga pantasya niyo sa pera kaysa tumulong sa isang health emergency?”

“Ang estado ay may karapatang gamitin ang anumang facility niya sa isang nationwide emergency. Di na kailangan ang pahintulot niyo.”

She even compared the residents of Capas to former President Noynoy Aquino III who’s also a TarlaqueƱo

“Di ko mawari kung anong uri ng mga Pilipino kayo. Para kayong si Noynoy na taga Tarlac din. Walang alam at walang paki-alam.”

Dr. Ethel Pineda also noted that if the people of Tarlac believe that the OFWs are the modern heroes of the country, they  shoul welcome them to their province.



"Panay ang sabi niyo na ang mga OFW ang mga bagong bayani. Pero diring-diri kayo at ayaw niyo ipa-quarantine sa probinsya niyo. Wag maging mangmang at sakim"

During the past few days, the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Capas, Tarlac opposed the plan of the national government under the administration of Pres. Rody Dutere to use New Clark City as the quarantined are for OFWs.

The residents of Capas, Tarlac also held a rally against the plan of the national government and even made a tarpaulin to show that the OFWs are not welcome to their municipality, but later on, after meeting with DOH, Capas already agreed with the plan as along as they're going to fulfill the conditions they gave.
