5 friends of Howie Severino succumbed to COVID


For Howie Severino, COVID-19 deaths are not just statistics and numbers.

The veteran GMA-7 journalist wants a different treatment on the death toll as it breached the 5,000 mark last Tuesday.

It didn’t matter how low the mortality rate was, as Howie felt the impact of the pandemic as five of his acquaintance died because of the virus.

“Philippines breached 5000 Covid deaths mark today. Among those were 5 friends – the country’s leading China expert, my former high school student who became a lawyer, an ex-senator, ex-newspaper colleague, and former teammate in HS who died just last [week],” said Severino.

“Humanize the death toll,” he added.
