My mom died before she even got her hazard pay

"My mom died before she even got her hazard pay."

Netizen Joie Cruz, daughter of a fallen COVID-19 frontliner, shares in a Facebook post her experience after her mother's fight with COVID-19:

"A few months before my mom passed away, she's been telling me about how long she and her co-nurses had been waiting for their COVID hazard pay.

She and her co-workers were expecting about PHP 30,000+ for their COVID hazard pay, based on the DOH announcement of PHP 500 per day for frontliners.

I went to her workplace to process some of her docs and to claim her benefits. I was told that her COVID hazard pay is already available. Instead of the expected PHP 30,000+, what I received was PHP 7,000+.

Apparently, the COVID hazard pay of the nurses in their public hospital has been reduced to just PHP 150 per day and on top of it were deductions that were not even properly explained by the hospital administration.  In the end, it appears my mom was only given a freaking PHP 64.18 ($ 1.31) per day for her COVID hazard pay for 41 days.

This issue is not about monetary value. This issue is about how governments lie and how we take for granted and exploit our frontliners in the face of this pandemic."

Joie also recalled how her mother was denied a swab test despite being exposed to a COVID-19 patient, since her rapid test showed that she was negative for SARS-CoV-2, and her x-ray and ECG results were normal. Joie's mother passed away shortly after she was intubated on July 21.

"This issue is about how my mom was treated way way below than what she deserves in a local public hospital where she worked in for more than 10 years - the first 4 years of those were without any salary," Joie adds.
