Nag-viral ang post ng University of the Philippines student na si Zyrene Boco dahil sa pagtanggi umano ng mga ospital na tanggapin ang kanyang ama na nakaranas ng heart attack sa pagkabahala na may virus ito.
Sa post ni Boco, Industrial Engineering student, kinuwento niya ang sinapit ng kanyang ama.
“On the morning after his birthday, he complained of having difficulty breathing. I woke up to my mom screaming for help because he was having a heart attack. It broke my heart to help heave his body out of the house, scared that he would be fighting for his life. He told us: “Malakas ako. Kaya ko ‘to.” He was then rushed to the nearest hospital but it could not provide the care he needed,” bahagi ng post.
Sabi pa niya, “All day and night we were calling hospitals because he needed intensive care but NO ONE WANTED TO ACCEPT HIM. They feared he suffered the infection of the virus but he did not show any symptoms prior to the day he was admitted. Many hospitals gave us false hope by saying an icu was available and upon learning about the situation, would turn my dad down.”
Buhay pa umano sana ang kanyang ama kung mayroon lang nabigay ng sapat na atensyong medikal dito.
” They left my dad there to die. He died in a tent by the street with primary level care and we couldn’t do anything about it. He was cremated a few hours later with no one by his side. He didn’t even get a proper funeral. It’s so unfair because he didn’t deserve it. He was a good man and he was helping so many people,” bahagi pa ng post.
Hindi umano inakala ni Boco na mamamatay ang kanyang ama sa kanyang harapan, giit niya “I hated that I couldn’t do anything about it because he didn’t die, he was killed by the system that prioritizes only the rich and powerful.”
