Times like these bring out both the worst and best of people. On one hand, you have individuals hoarding supplies, making it difficult for medical personnel to get hold of essentials like face masks and alcohol. On the other hand, you have good samaritans like this dude.
You may have come across images of a Toyota Tundra driving around Metro Manila spraying disinfectant on its surroundings. Its owner is Jojo Soliman, and we managed to contact him for more photos of his one-of-a-kind setup.
