Medical frontliners and healthcare workers in Ilocos Sur are calling for a “timeout” as COVID-19 cases continue to rise.

Dr. Jun Tagorda, president of Ilocos Sur Medical Society (ISMS), expressed how overwhelmed is the local health system and relayed the appeal of his fellow frontliners for a timeout.

According to him, they need the help and support from the government to continuously hold the fort against the virus and urged the lgu to place the province under enhanced community quarantine for at least two weeks.

Dr. Tagorda added that this would give the province time to address the shortage in quarantine and isolation facilities and help infected health workers recover.
