Vice President Leni Robredo on Wednesday launched a free teleconsultation service for those who need to see a doctor in ECQ areas to ease the burden on overwhelmed hospitals.

The Bayanihan e-Konsulta of the Office of the Vice President can accommodate medical needs of outpatient cases in Metro Manila and nearby provinces under the enhanced community quarantine namely Bulacan, Laguna, Cavite, and Rizal.

"Ang inisiyatibong ito ay bahagi rin ng patuloy na pagkilos ng ating tanggapan upang suportahan ang mga ospital at frontliners, sa gitna ng matinding pangangailangan sa kanilang serbisyo dahil sa pagtaas ng COVID-19 cases," Robredo said in a Facebook post.
