It’s time to show real charity from the Catholic church.

Actor now Quezon City Congressman Alfred Vargas floated a wild idea on how to tackle the novel coronavirus outbreak in the country. Should hospitals come brimming with patients, here’s an alternative.

“Churches as health facilities? Not a bad idea,” the politiko said. “Malaki. Hindi kulob. Maraming pwedeng community volunteers to partner with Red Cross.”

It’s not an idea unheard of before, he added. “Parang World War II where the Church played a big role in the nation’s healing of both the soul and the body,” Vargas said.
