A health worker at the Epidemiology and Disease Control Division had a bad hair day on Tuesday. The health worker, tasked with informing people about their infection status and coordinating in contact tracing, said he faced a hard time.

“Today was really a bad day for me,” the health worker told the Post requesting anonymity. “I got scolding from many people whenever I rang them up to ask about their contact history and health condition.”

According to him, people complained why they were being asked about their health status when the government has already said that it is not going to pay for COVID-19 tests and treatment for them.
