ROXAS CITY, Capiz– A male nurse working in the frontline against the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) complained to the Roxas City Police Station that he was evicted from his boarding house at Rooseville Heights, Barangay 11 here.

Based on the police blotter report he filed, Benn Aaron Santiago, 22, of Sigma, Capiz said he was surprised upon arrival that his landlady told him to look for another boarding house.

According to Santiago, his landlady will no longer accept him as they don’t want to be infected by COVID-19.

Santiago got dismayed and posted on social media the discrimination he suffered from his landlady despite his sacrifices as a frontliner against the virus.

He also asked the local government to take action as his fellow health workers also suffered the same predicament.
