After hours of frantic search for any hospital that would accept COVID-19 patients, the Barrera family found themselves mourning their patriarch outside a hospital emergency room in Paranaque City. 

“My brother was wailing and crying outside with my mother in shock and unresponsive next to him. My dad died in the cold,” said Angelo Barrera, a 22-year old game developer in a tweet that has since gone viral on social media. 

In a series of tweets, Barrera narrated how the 61-year old pastor struggled to get proper medical care, as hospitals in the National Capital Region, the epicenter of the coronavirus disease, reported full capacity.
