As the pandemic is still making everyone worried sick, it can’t be prevented that some people will be very sensitive when it comes to the recovered patients.
This has been the experience of Donita Nose after she recovered from the virus.
Recently, the comedian asked financial help from Raffy Tulfo. That time, she already recovered but still in the hospital for better treatment.
And now that she has been discharged, Donita experinced criticisms from her neighbors. In an interview, she said that she can feel the judgements of her neighbors about her.
“Hindi mo talaga maiwasang ma-differentiate pag COVID patient ka. May iba talagang mga tao na hindi malawak ang pang-unawa sa sakit na ‘to,” she said.
She went on saying that people should not show to the survivors that they are “nakakadiri” because everyone can be a dupe.
After she went home, Donita said that she feels that some of her neighbors are thinking that she might be a threat to them.
“May ibang kapitbahay na nagtatanong, ‘Ay! Nandiyan na ba siya?’
“Siyempre, lumabas na ako. Kaya nga ako lumabas, kasi magaling na ako, di ba?
“Tapos, nagtatanong sila, ‘Nandiyan na ba? Paano ‘yan? Baka delikado?’
Moreover, Donita explained that she is fully recovered and there’s nothing to worry about. She stresses that what could be dangerous is that when people go out without mask or face shield.
