Netizens cry foul over PGH asking for face mask donations

Netizens expressed their disappointment when it comes to the government and those who hoard masks and alcohol.

  • Philippine General Hospital asked for help for medical supplies.

On March 14, the administration of the Philippine General Hospital put out a notice asking the public for donations as the hospital is running low on personal protective equipment (PPE).

Among the things they’re asking for are surgical masks, face shields, n95 masks, and surgical gowns.

This post sparked outrage in the online community.

Netizens are claiming that the government should’ve prioritized supplies for the citizens before donating some to other countries.

“We are currently looking for suppliers and donors of face masks. We are also accepting alcohol, tissue papers, and other medical supplies that we could donate to the patients and healthcare providers of PGH,” said the University of the Philippines Manila Student Council as they launched a face mask drive for the patients, health workers, and interns of the institution.
