Covid-19 has surprised everyone. No country is prepared for this. That is why these are much-needed gear that most hospitals do not have a budget for. But these are necessary to keep the healthcare workers safe.

Other initiatives of the SM Group in response to the COVID-19 crisis include the waived rentals of all tenants of SM Supermalls nationwide.

Additionally, they provide continued compensation for employees and the extension of an Emergency Financial Assistance to its front liners, security guards and janitorial staff. They will continue to enjoy benefits during the Enhanced Community Quarantine period around the Philippines.

Extended ECQ

Many areas around the country have already declared an extension of the Enhanced Community Quarantine.

Again, I would like to reiterate that the ECQ is not to eradicate Covid-19 by the end of May 15. Until we have a vaccine or cure for it, it stays with us. However, the ECQ can slow down the spread of the virus.

During this time, the government and healthcare professionals can prepare themselves and put implement proper protocols in fighting the pandemic.

Let’s all cooperate and work together to overcome this global health crisis. If we don’t need to go out, let’s stay home. However, if we do need to work or run errands, let’s practice safety, like the wearing of face masks, social distancing, and hand washing.

By the way, if you are concerned with going out, you can have your home essentials from SM Store delivered to your home. Read more: SM Store Delivers to Your Home
