It has been more than two months since the Philippines government brought in coronavirus restrictions.

Thousands of unemployed workers who want to return to their home provinces or their jobs overseas are stranded in the capital.

Unable to earn, many of them have been forced to live on the streets.

The government says it is doing the best it can - but public outrage is growing.
