"Ecija prayer warriors” to provide tele-counseling to COVID-19 frontliners, victims , families

CABANATUAN CITY – With the entire world grappling with the COVID-19 pandemic, Nueva Ecija Gov. Aurelio M. Umali yesterday sought the help of the religious sector in providing tele-counseling to victims of the killer virus and their families, especially the front liners.

The governor asked pastors, bishops, priests, and counselors of various religious organizations to become part of Nueva Ecija’s "Prayer Warriors" who will help give messages of hope, strength, and healing to our frontliners and other COVID-19 patients through tele-counseling.

"Sa kasalukuyan ay may mga religious people na ang nagbibigay ng payo sa pamamagitan ng tawag sa cellphone o text messages at gayundin ang pag-aalay ng panalangin para sa mga front liners. Kapag mas marami ang nagtutulong-tulong, mas nagiging magaan ang bawat pagsubok na pinagdadaanan," said Father Arnold M. Abelardo, spokesperson of the NE-inter-agency task force-COVID-19.

Those representatives of religious groups who would want to become part of NE-Prayer Warriors, kindly send in your messages/videos to the Facebook page of "Malasakit sa Kalusugan ng Novo Ecijano: COVID-19 updates, said Abelardo.

He said positive COVID-19 cases in Nueva Ecija remained at 25, as of Friday. 

Also, test results for 108 PUIs out of 157 turned out negative while the results for the other 24 are still being awaited.
