Isang Batang Doktor ang Pumanaw Dahil sa Pagsisinungaling ng Pasyente Niya


Amid the coronavirus outbreak in the Philippines, we need more frontliners than ever. These medical staff lay their lives on the line for the sake of other patients. For their part, what patients can do is be honest and compliant with the medical staff. Sadly, not all patients are willing to cooperate, resulting to grievous mistakes.

Earlier this week, people were saddened when a medical staff passed away due to COVID-19. The worst part is this tragic could have been prevented only if a patient told the truth. According to reports, the patient lied about his travel history.


The unnamed medical staff was a cardiologist. He was interviewing a patient and inquired about his travel history. However, instead of telling the truth, the patient lied and claimed that he had no travel history. Little did he know that this lie will cost the life of someone.

A few days after the interview, the cardiologist who interviewed the patient was infected with the coronavirus. He was still young and robust, but unfortunately, he eventually succumbed to the dreaded disease. Many people expressed their condolences as another front liner's life was sacrificed.


In an official statement, Philippine Heart Association expressed their condolences to the family of the departed doctor. However, they did not name the doctor or even identified the hospital he was working at. PHA only clarified that he passed away "while fulfilling his duties as a doctor."

Because of this tragedy, more and more people on social media are emphasizing the importance of honesty during this crisis. All medical staff is doing the best they could to help others, and the least we can do to repay them is by being honest and cooperative.
