A Filipino frontliner has sent Senator Cynthia Villar an open letter to visit a private hospital with nine Covid-19 patients.
Over Twitter, Doc Aczar (@iamtix95) invited the senator who told frontliners to work harder to visit a private hospital with Covid-19 patients.
I am inviting Sen Villar to visit our private hospital with 9 positive covid patients. I will shoulder her PPE, food & transportation. I'm kind. I can't invite her to a government hospital bec she might have a panic attack while making rounds— DocAczar??? (@iamtix95) August 1, 2020
“I will shoulder her PPE, food, and transportation. I’m kind. I can’t invite her to a government hospital because she might have a panic attack while making rounds,” the Twitter user said.
The tweet is now going viral on the social media platform with nearly 10,000 likes and 1,000 retweets.
Villar has already clarified that she was not referring to medical frontliners to work harder but the government officials.
“We have to work harder and better, but I am not referring in particular to the medical workers — our frontliners. We are referring to all of us and DOH (Department of Health) and PhilHealth in particular. There is so much room for improvement in the government’s response to curbing the transmission of the disease,” she clarified.

when billionaires like cynthia villar are so adamant to re-open the economy so workers can go back to work and create profit for them, that's an indicator that billionaires don't make their own money, workers do— millennial of manila (@MillennialOfMNL) August 2, 2020
