Netizens laugh at government for asking spiritual leaders to counsel people depressed about COVID-19

All religious groups have been notified by the government, he added.

According to Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra, the National Task Force (NTF) Against Covid-19 has expressed major concern with the high number of suicide cases in the midst of this pandemic.

“I received a phone call today from Sec. Carlito Galvez, chief implementor of the IATF national task force, regarding the alarming increase in the number of suicides during these pandemic times,” Guevarra said Saturday.

Guevarra had already asked churches and spiritual leaders to provide support of any kind to help those depressed about the current living conditions and unemployment.

Guevarra also wants help for the people worried about catching the coronavirus, those who’ve been suffering from sadness due to immense isolation, and those that have become pessimistic that life before COVID-19 will never come back.

“I share Sec. Galvez’s concern and respectfully request our spiritual leaders to bring this much-needed message of hope to our suffering countrymen in order to stave off more incidents of self-destruction,” Guevarra told reporters.

All religious groups have been notified by the government, he added.

Netizens blamed the government for its lapses.
