Christian Vasquez ready sa pandemic

05/25/2020

DAHIL siya ang nakatoka sa pagbili ng supplies pa hera sa kanyang pamilya ngayong mayroong community quarantine, natatakot ang aktor na si Christian Vazquez na maiuwi niya ang virus at mahawahan ng sakit ang mga mahal sa buhay.

“We should all think of ourselves as vessels for Covid-19 to spread,” aniya. “I’m scared of what I might bring home with me, so I’m very careful when I go out. Also, I now do things that I didn’t normally do before, like wash bags of chips when I bring them home.”

Kwento niya: “I once bought stuff at a nearby gas station. I was wearing all the necessary protection then. The people there know me, so the girl at the counter greeted me and said, ‘Sir, we’re not sick, OK?’ I answered her, ‘Yes you’re not, but what if I’m the one who’s sick and we just don’t know it yet? You should consider that, too.’”

Isiniwalat naman ng aktor na hindi sila nahirapan ng kanyang pamilya na mag-adjust sa buhay-lockdown.

“My family has been ready, even before the lockdown. I’m sort of a prepper,” paliwanag ni Christian. “For me, a person gets worried about calamities, disasters and emergencies because he is not prepared—that’s the only reason one gets sleepless nights.”

Habang nasa bahay, abala si Christian sa mga gawaing bahay.

“I even do the laundry, sometimes. It’s funny because since I don’t have anything else to do, I stare at our laundry and wait for them to dry,” dagdag niya.

Abala rin siya sa pangongolekta at pagdisenyo ng mga kutsilyo. “It used to be a dying art, but we’re trying to revive it here,” kuwento niya. “I help local blacksmiths by collaborating with them. When I post our work [on the Facebook page called XV Blades], people get interested. They contact us, even those from abroad.”

Hirit ng aktor, malaki ang responsibilidad ng mga kagaya niyang celebrity sa panahon ng epidemya.

  “These days, I’m very careful with what I post on my social media accounts. I don’t want to be the cause of panic from among my followers,” aniya “I also don’t want people to react negatively about certain things I do. I discuss my fears and frustrations, as well as my opinions on certain issues, only among friends. I believe that now is not the time to spread hate and anger. We all have to be united in battling this problem.” Nagpasalamat din si Christian

sa mga front-liners, “who are fighting this war against the virus for us.” –Inquirer
