Motorcycle ride-hailing company Angkas on Friday presented its proposed protective shield that will be used once back-riding is allowed.
Angkas chief transport advocate George Royeca said that the shield is made of plastic which will be disinfected every ride. He suggested that riders should bring their own helmet in order to prevent the spread of the dreaded virus.
In a report by The STAR, the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases and the Department of Health are studying the proposal to use protective health equipment to enable angkas (back riding) motorcycle operators to return to the streets. – Adam Ang/BusinessWorld
