This young child snapped Wednesday by our camera begging for alms from motorists in Legarda street, Manila, is dangerously exposed to Covid-19 as he is not wearing a face mask, and worse, with cars zipping by past him, may end up a victim of a road mishap.
Amid the pandemic, uncaring parents whose children are caught loitering in public are the ones who are thrown in jail. Usually.
So we ask: What do authorities out there are doing especially that Legarda is just a stone’s throw away from Malacanang Palace.
