Stories of COVID-19 survival: PHCAN holds live FB session
The Philippines now has 163 fatalities and 73 recoveries. But while the number of deaths outnumber recoveries, most people who contract the virus go on to get better. That’s because 80% of people who contract the coronavirus will only experience relatively mild symptoms or experience no symptoms at all. While most will recover from contracting COVID-19, the peculiar nature of recovery is that it requires isolation. Patients, in addition to being sick, will oftentimes also experience anxiety and fear. According to the members of the Public Health Communications Advisory Network (PHCAN), COVID-19 positive patients should be shown kindness and compassion, not discrimination. As a follow up to their first FB Live session last April 4, PHCAN will be holding another Live session this Saturday, April 11, at 2 p.m.
