Gwyneth Chua and our poor implementation of Covid-19 health and quarantine protocols

Wazzup Pilipinas!?

"Department of Tourism, pinagpapaliwanag ang Berjaya Makati Hotel kung bakit pinayagang makalabas ang isang hotel guest na naka-quarantine sa kanila noong Disyembre 23." 

"Just heard of the young lady, Gwyneth Chua, who skipped the required quarantine after coming home from the US and then went to parties and ate in Poblacion, Makati and now 12, maybe more, are sick. She had Omicron but paid a facility in the province to lie for her."

Lol trending na yung babaing nagbakasyon sa US, then pag-uwi ay infected ng omicron variant pala, pero nag skip ng quarantine at nagparty possibly infecting a whole bar. 

Let our response be: Tang*na niya!?

Gwyneth Chua is not some isolated (no pun intended) case. She is, at best, a representation of the messed up system here in the Philippines. The rich are able to get away with skirting around the rules because they have the money to do so.

Though there is nothing wrong with being privileged. What is wrong is when people use that privilege and (knowing or unknowingly) hurt those around them.

Recognize your privilege. Use your privilege RESPONSIBLY.

FOMO is not a valid reason to leave quarantine and infect not just her friends but the owners and workers at the restaurants. 

Given that we hate the pandemic response of this administration... so come on, her actions had MAJOR consequences.

It's people like her who make it hard for everyone else who are following proper protocol when it should be easy enough to just not party with friends if you are in mandatory quarantine.

She has been outed and called out profusely on social media. The government should make sure she gets penalized for her violations. We hope we could get that action ASAP.

If the Philippines goes to lockdown again because of this privileged and irresponsible individual, ya’ll better hunt her down. 

All the effort and pagtitiis wasted because of a girl who can’t handle living in a hotel room for a week.

We’re flattening the curve and a bitch like this one needs to be taught a lesson the hard way.


Meanwhile, netizens should stop throwing hate and insults aimed at her. Let's just pressure DOT, IATF, and other government agencies to do their job since they're supposed to be the ones responsible for the implementation of strict health and quarantine protocols.

This is DOT and DOH’s last chance to actually show people they mean business and showing they have a proper contact tracing system in place by cracking down ALL the parties involve in this mess. Regardless kung mayaman sila or hindi.

Did you know? When we name drop Poblacion girl in a witch hunt, the DOH, the hotel, the whole system gets a pass for being mediocre and designed for the more privileged — 2 YEARS into the pandemic. 

Yes she broke quarantine but how is it that our contact tracing still sucks

Not keeping my hopes up.
