Doctor shares battle with COVID-19 - ‘I am Patient 194’




Everybody knows that all the medical professional in the National Capital Region (NCR) are doing there very best despite the different difficulties that comes in the country’s public health sector.
All doctors are at both private and public hospitals because of their Hippocratic oath must be at the forefront of the battle against the invicible novel coronavirus 2019 or COVID 19.

But we should they are human too, same as you and me, that is why it sucks when the government calls those who are confirmed infected with COVID-19 to be just called as a number (non-disclosure is because of the data privacy law).

We would to share her story, so that everyone can really understand and realize what they are risking for us in order to have this pandemic under control.
Below is her full Facebook post:
Ako si #PH194. Mabuti nang sakin nyo direktang malaman, kesa sa tsismis. Hindi ko akalaing tatamaan ako agad. Nagsisimula pa lang ang gyera nun, casualty na ako. Akala ko chikungunya lang. High grade fevers na paulit- ulit. Kakaibang sakit ng ulo at katawan. Hindi makakain. Saka lang nag-sink in sakin na posibleng Covid nga ito nung malaman kong may symptoms din yung kasama kong mag-opera ilang araw nang nakalipas. Diyos ko po, una kong naisip ang pamilya ko: ang anak kong 42yo, aang parents kong seniors. Inexpose ko sila, ang iyak ko noon. Di bale nang ako, wag lang sila. 


Nagkulong na ako sa kwarto. Nag-birthday akong nakaquarantine at may sakit na nakamamatay. Buti pala umabot pa ako ng 42. Wala akong choice kundi libangin ang sarili ko sa pagbabasa ng soc med. Ang mga colleagues kong may covid ay naka-intubate. At 4 na nga silang namatay. Akala ko pagaling na ako, bigla akong nagtae. Sabi sa Wuhan, pag nagkaroon ng GI symptoms, tuluy-tuloy nang pumapangit ang kundisyon. Ngayon lang ako natakot. Napaiyak ako. Hindi pa ako handang mamatay. Masamang damo ako, di ba? Kelangan pa ko ng anak ko. Sasabak pa ko sa gyera... Hindi lang pala virus ang kalaban ko, pati katinuan ng pag-iisip. Kaya kamustahin nyo mga kakilala nyong may sakit, mga naka-quarantine, at ang pamilya nila. Kelangan nila ng pagpapalakas ng loob.

Sana matapos na ito. Sana gumaling na kami. Sana wala nang mamatay. Miss na miss ko na ang anak ko. Ngunit salamat pa din sa lahat ng taong tumulong at nangamusta. Too many to mention. Mahal ko kayo. At Dyos ko, maraming salamat po at buhay pa ako at ok ang pamilya ko.
