 WORKERS WHO have contracted the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) while physically reporting to work may now claim P10,000 cash assistance from the Employees’ Compensation Commission (ECC), while P15,000 is granted for death claims.   

“Many of those who got infected by the virus are workers who are now faced with financial burdens, on top of their health problems,” ECC Executive Director Stella Zipagan-Banawis said in a news release posted on Tuesday.   

The agency said COVID-19 was approved to be listed under the commission’s list of compensable diseases through a resolution approved in April this year.   

In an interview on Unang Balita on Wednesday, ECC Senior Information Officer Alvin B. Garcia said those who contracted the virus last year may also still claim their cash aid.  

Claims may be made through the Social Security System (SSS) for private sector workers and the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) for the public sector. — Bianca Angelica D. Añago
