Filipinos returning to the Philippines complain as they were forced to share beds with other OFW returnees inside a hotel served as their temporary accommodation for their quarantine period.
“Single occupanyang pinaiiral natin. Aamininkomerongmgasitwasyon, katulad noong isang gabi sa isang hotel sa Quezon City, 100 ‘yung bakante na rooms, 97 ‘yung dumating pero hindi nagkaunawaan with the hotel management,” says OWWA administrator Hans Leo Cacdac addressing the incident in which some OFWs allegedly shared beds inside a hotel.
“Ang ginawa ng hotel management, dahil nga sa halos hating gabi na sila nakarating mula sa airport, nilagak sil asa room sharing when kasyang kasya naman sila sa isang single occupancy of the entire hotel,” the OWWA Administrator added.
However, the set-up was corrected after the situation was reported to the Welfare office.
“The same night naman po nai-correct ‘yon. Humihingi po ako ng paumanhin kung nangyari man ‘yon pero rest assured po pagdating niyo po dito, single occupancy ang atin gio-observe,” says Cacdac.
There were also incidents in which OFWs were forced to stay in a quarantine facility that has poor sanitation and this was confirmed by OWWA.
Inside the temporary shelter, they also lacked social distancing measures as reported by OFWs from Kuwait.
