A number of tricycle drivers and operators on Black Saturday visited the Quezon City Hall to claim their P2,000 cash assistance from the local government.
In Jonathan Andal's tweet, the drivers could be seen lining up while wearing face masks amid the threat of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
TINGNAN: Dagsa sa Quezon City Hall ang mga tricycle driver at operator sa lungsod na kukuha ng 2,000 cash assistance mula sa LGU.— Jonathan Andal (@JonathanAndal_) April 11, 2020
Reklamo ng ilang driver, sana'y binigay na lang sa presidente ng kanilang mga toda ang ayuda para di na sila nagtipun-tipon dito @gmanews pic.twitter.com/HvdsFWMO6E
However, some drivers failed get what they came for, lamenting that the aid could have been given to the president of their Tricycle Operators and Drivers' Association to avoid the gathering in observance of the social distancing policy.
As of Friday, there were 4,195 COVID-19 cases nationwide with 221 deaths and 140 recoveries. —Joahna Lei Casilao/LBG, GMA News
