Celebrities plead for people not to lie about their travel history

People should not lie and unity is a need in this time of the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Aiko Melendez is appealing to people not to lie because a lie can kill.
  • Being truthful is the least that people can do to help the frontliners.

A doctor recently died because of the coronavirus he got from a patient who lied about his travel history. The sad news had pushed some celebrities to urge the public not to lie about their travel history.

To be honest and giving the correct information is a big help in protecting our health workers and our country.

Katrina Halili posted on her Instagram that people should not lie and unity is needed in this time of a pandemic.

“Mga Kapuso, bawal ang magsinungaling. Sa mga panahon ngayon, kailangan nating magkaisa para labanan ang banta ng COVID-19,”

Mga Kapuso, bawal ang magsinungaling. Sa mga panahon ngayon, kailangan nating magkaisa para labanan ang banta ng COVID-19. Hinihikayat ng Department of Health ang lahat ng pasyente na i-disclose ang lahat ng impormasyon sa mga health workers. Huwag po nating ilihim ang mga aktibidad lalo na kung may kaugnayan sa ating pagbiyahe at sa exposure natin sa mga kaso ng COVID-19. Importante po ito upang maiwasang mahawaan ang mga doktor, nurse, at iba pang frontline health workers. Ang inyong tapat na sagot ay maaaring makapagligtas ng mga buhay — hindi lamang ng mga health workers, pati na rin ng mga pasyente na nangangailangan the ng pangangalaga nila. Salamat po, mga Kapuso. Sa panahon ngayon, dapat katotohanan lamang. Mag-ingat po tayong lahat.

Disclosing all the information to the health workers can save lives and frontliners can also protect themselves from contamination.

Aiko Melendez posted a video message appealing to the people to not lie because a lie can kill.

“Mga Kapuso, bawal po ang magsinungaling. Sa panahon ngayon na tayo po ay dumarasan ng isang matinding pagsubok at krisis at pandemic, hindi po ito ang panahon para tayo ay magsinungaling.”

“Lalong lalo na sa mga taong katulad ng mga frontliners natin, ang mga doctors, nurses, health workers, sundalo, at lahat ng mga kapulisan.

“Hindi po ito ang panahon para tayo po ay magsinungaling sa ating travel history o tunay na karamdaman.

“Dahil kung gusto niyo pong tulungan tayo ng mga frontliners natin, dapat tulungan din natin sila sa pagsasabi nang totoo.

“You know, one lie can kill. At gusto ba natin na isang araw, gumising sa isang bayan na ang frontliners ay naglalagas dahil lang sa pagkakamali at pagsisinungaling ng isang tao?

“Help save a life by not lying. Lying is not accepted.

“God bless you all. Stay safe.”

Kapuso star Mikoy Morales was asked by his home network to remind the netizens not to lie. “Don’t lie. Please. Disclose all info needed to our health workers. Pag nagsinungalin ka, maraming pwedeng mamatay – literal.”

Ria Atayde also posted on Twitter to ask people not to lie about their travel history because frontliners are getting sick because of such lies.



There were four doctors who had died in the country because of coronavirus from patients who lied about their travel history.
