Recognizing the pandemic’s toll on medical and other essential frontliners, who not only must deal with the virus but also distance themselves from their loved ones to ensure their safety, Globe unveils an inspirational video dedicated to the heroes of the current crisis.
“Medical frontliners are in vulnerable positions as they have been leading the fight against COVID-19 for the past four months or so. The most painful part about this is that they must constantly distance themselves from everyone, especially their loved ones,” shared Albert de Larrazabal, Chief Commercial Officer at Globe.
“By offering fast and reliable WiFi connectivity in hospitals and quarantine facilities, we hope to empower frontliners in bridging this gap between them and their loved ones as we continue our battle as a nation against this pandemic,” Larrazabal added.
GoWiFi has provided free and unlimited internet to over 80 hospitals and quarantine facilities across the country since the outbreak of COVID-19 last March. Some of the locations include Department of Health quarantine facilities in World Trade Center, Philippine Arena, Philsports Arena, National Government Center, ASEAN Convention Center, and Quirino Stadium, some medical facilities and hospitals in Metro Manila, and in key cities in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.
To stay updated on the latest COVID-19 developments, Globe mobile and broadband customers are also given free access to the official websites of the Department of Health (DOH) and National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC).
