Incompetence really killed my lolo. From my tito being an irresponsible policeman to the quarantine facility's poor monitoring of his condition, and down to lack of hospitals that could accommodate him.
It was unreal to watch him fight so hard while all we could do was give him moral support via video call. Almost everyone in the call was crying. We watched him as he tried to take every deep breath that he could. Prayers couldn't save him.
After a week of looking for ways to save my lolo, we're still on our toes as my lola is still covid positive and her condition could go south anytime. Still no available hospitals. Still no certainty that she's safe.
I couldn't even visit them before this all happened because it was clear to us that we had to protect them from possible transmissions. In the end it was just carelessness from my tito who lived with them. Really hard not to blame him. It's been a year. He should've known.

Struggling to find a hospital for my lolo. His lungs are now filled with fluid and he needs immediate surgery. Any leads appreciated.
Thanks for all the help, everyone! He's been admitted to a hospital in Caloocan.
My lolo became comatose as soon as he was admitted to the hospital. It was too late for him to be saved. He passed on this morning and we are closely monitoring my lola's condition.
