With the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases at 217 as of writing, the call for bayanihan is stronger than ever as LGUs try to cope with the implementation of the enhanced community quarantine.

Yesterday, we wrote about content creator AC Soriano who raised money via Twitter to help our frontliners and those severely affected by the quarantine. Today, meet the Year Level 3 students of the San Beda University College of Medicine who are doing their part in spreading awareness about COVID-19 prevention.

How much do you know about COVID-19? If you're worried that you've been fed false information, take their informative quiz here to educate yourself on fact vs. misconception.

According to the students, the "I Got You COVID: A Public Health Campaign on COVID -19" initially started as a community engagement project for Family and Community Medicine at the San Beda University College of Medicine.

"The activity was initially set to take place on March 11 inside the university to raise awareness about the slowly progressing COVID-19. Due to class suspensions, however, the program did not push through and they resorted to social media to continue their campaign and to reach a wider audience," student Deniece Hidalgo writes.

In support of the juniors, the seniors also used their Facebook page, EREID ALERT, to help promote the quiz. EREID ALERT is also an initiative to help educate the public about other emerging and reemerging diseases. "Pero now we're focusing din sa CoVid. So we're both helping each other [spread awareness] through likes and shares."
