Veteran singer-songwriter Ebe Dancel is urging the public to stay inside their homes as much as possible, noting that the frontliners battling the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic are already exhausted.

The OPM icon took to Twitter earlier today, July 22, to leave a “gentle reminder” for people to not go out if not really needed to avoid exposing themselves to the novel coronavirus.

“[If] you have no business being out, stay home please. Kawawa naman yung mga frontliners natin. Pagod na pagod na po sila (Our frontliners are pitiful. They are already too tired),” Dancel stressed.

Dancel earlier this month also advocated the wearing of face masks in accordance with protocols set by health experts to prevent the further spread of the virus.

“I wear my mask as a sign of respect. I don’t want to get sick. I don’t want anyone else to get sick. Let’s help each other. Please wear your mask when you’re outdoors,” he said on Instagram on July 8.

As the amount of infections continues to grow, the Department of Health recently ordered public hospitals to allocate 70% bed capacity to COVID-19 patients should there be a surge in cases.

The Philippines breached the 70,000 mark after an additional 1,951 infections were recorded yesterday, July 21, bringing the country’s total to 70,764 COVID-19 cases, as of this writing.

The majority of cases are from Metro Manila, the epicenter of the contagion in the country. The DOH has, meanwhile, recorded 23,281 recoveries and 1,837 deaths.  /ra
