‘COVID-19: The Unseen’ gives rare look inside medical facility


    “Reporter’s Notebook” airs a special presentation on the unseen face of COVID-19 this April 25 on GMA-7.

    “Minsan naiiyak na kami sa loob ng ward kaya lang hindi namin pwedeng ipakita sa pasyente kasi parang mas panghihinaan sila eh. Kailangan mas malakas kami sa kanila,” goes the story of Dr. Kristine, a medical worker on the front lines of the country’s ongoing battle with COVID-19.

    In the special episode of “Reporter’s Notebook” this Saturday afternoon, viewers get a rare look inside the workings of a medical facility within Metro Manila.

    Jun Veneracion talks to Nurse Ninia who is among the health workers involved in testing suspected COVID-19 patients. Because of daily exposure to the virus, she and her husband, who is also a nurse, must sacrifice taking care of their own child.

    In the Philippines, where massive testing is yet to begin weeks after the lockdown was implemented mid-March, Maki Pulido talks to the families of those who died without having been tested or finding out their results.

    Catch “COVID-19: The Unseen,” a “Reporter’s Notebook” special presentation, tomorrow, April 25, 4:05 p.m. on GMA-7.
