People attempting suicide cause no food in the Philippines.
Small numbers, but we are still early stages.
Hospitals here have drafted admin staff, even psych treatment personnel into the fight.
All hospitals full.
If you have a medical emergency here, now you best treat yourself. Hospital visit could easily be a death sentence.
Another neighbor, whom I warned mid Feb, to prepare, did not. Even now, 18 days in, she tells my wife she shops for food 2x a week. No one in the house is practicing any sort of discipline in eating. She still has no clue as to the seriousness of the situation.
I fear that in the coming weeks she will show up at my door to ask for food.
I could only provide a token amount of food and then that will leave me vulnerable to further requests of food.
