Note to Mocha: Other Photos of PPEs You Could Have Used Instead

In the interest of being helpful.

(SPOT.ph) It finally happened: Mocha Uson has been summoned by the National Bureau of Investigation for allegedly sharing misleading information (some would say "fake news") on her Facebook page.

Earlier in April, Uson shared a post celebrating the arrival of the first batch of personal protective equipment ordered by the government—using a picture she didn't fact-check before sharing online. Unfortunately for her, the picture turned out to be about 0% accurate. It was actually a picture of Medical City doctors wearing protective equipment donated by the SM Foundation.

People online were quick to pick up on the misused photo. Uson herself wrote an open letter explaining the gaffe; she pointed her fingers at the original Philippine Star report that misattributed the same photo. Despite the washing of hands, though, you'd think a high-ranking government official would know how to double-check news—and why didn't she have access to information straight from the government source in the first place?

We can never say for sure what goes on in that blog, but we decided it would be best to lend a helping hand. We round up a couple of totally legitimate pictures of personal protective equipment (PPEs) in case the blog ever needs them again. Hindsight is 20/20, after all.
