Google’s latest doodle gives praises to the food service workers around the globe amid the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

“To all food service workers, thank you.”

To all food service workers, thank you

Restaurants in the Philippines and other countries have an estimated 70% to 80% revenue loss as of March 2020 due to COVID-19, according to the Unilever Food Solutions Philippines.

However, that doesn’t stop the industry from providing service to its customers.

Grab PH has recorded a rapid demand in food delivery since the implementation of the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ). Country Head of GrabFood Philippines, EJ Dela Vega, said the demand tripled after the ECQ was announced.

“A lot more people are trying to order food online,” he said.

Grab drivers, including street food vendors and other food service workers are frontlining in the fight against COVID-19. They risk their safety to provide service and earn a living for their family.

Due to this, Google and the rest of the world is giving praises to the sacrifices of food service workers.

British media personality Piers Morgan called Filipino nurses in the United Kingdom (UK) as “unsung heroes” in the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) fight.

During the “Good Morning Britain” broadcast on Tuesday (April 7), Morgan lauded the contribution of Filipino workers, and other immigrant workers, to the UK’s National Health Service (NHS).

He gave a shoutout to some of these workers saying, “amazing number of Filipinos working at NHS and unsung heroes.” 

“These are the immigrants currently saving people’s lives, coming here and enriching our country and doing an amazing job. Thank you to all Filipinos who are here doing an amazing work and to every other immigrant working at NHS,” Morgan said.

A bus driver in the United States (US) died 11 days after he posted a video on Facebook complaining about a coughing passenger.

50-year-old Detroit bus driver Jason Hargrove posted a video on March 21 recounting an incident where an woman in her late fifties coughed several times without covering her mouth.

“I feel violated, I feel violated for those folks that was on the bus when this happened,” he said on his video.

He also advised everyone watching the video to take the pandemic seriously.

He reiterated his anger to the old woman who coughed without covering her mouth saying it was those kinds of people who are not taking the situation seriously.

“This is real, I’m out here. We are all here. We are moving in this city back and forth, trying to do our jobs and be professional about what we do,” he said.

“We’re out here as public workers, doing our job, trying to make an honest living to take care of our families. But for you to get on the bus, and stand on the bus, and cough several times without covering up your mouth, and you know that we’re in the middle of a pandemic, that lets me know that some folks don’t care.”

A week after his Facebook rant, Hangrove, a father of six, died on April 1 due to complications from COVID-19.

His video has already been viewed more than half a million times. Netizens are also rallying for the frontliners amid the COVID-19 pandemic. AAC
