Let me just share to you my experience yesterday.
Friday was our schedule for skeletal work in school. We also celebrated a retirement day for one of our colleagues, of course, with caution and social distancing. We enjoyed the celebration even we're meters away from our co-workers and friends.
Until the short party ended. Some went home, and some of us stayed in the office. After a while, we received a message from our head, calling our attention and asking some of us to go in her office. When we're there, a shocking and scary news was shared to us, 'There's a positive CoViD patient in our town, and worse he's here in the barangay, not far from the school'. We are really scared that time because the identified house of the patient was very near in the school.
We did not spread the word as our head ordered us, since there was no official announcement yet. After some minutes, through social media, we read some news about it. There were different versions, some news are saying that "the patient escaped from the quarantine facility", another is that "he went home already" and the other one is that, "he's already roaming around the place".
We're really confused and become more scared reading these news. Until, we went home hurriedly and sanitized ourselves immediately. After an hour, the mayor made clarifications through the TV and facebook live. He said that the patient did not escaped from the quarantine facility, he was sent in the barangay health center for another quarantine, and he was not able to go home yet. These are clear! Now, we can breath easily and we're not that scared anymore. What I learned is that, 'don't believe and conclude things easily', 'it's important to wait for official announcements', 'always validate news' and 'trust GOD'.
