MANILA, Phiippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – In a recent statement made in Makati City, Vice President Len i Robredo said that relevant government agencies in the Philippines should take the coronavirus very seriously.
She was reacting to alarming news that the deadly virus has spread not only in China but other countries as well. She was very concerned (nakakabahala) that the virus will reach the Philippines in due time.
Asked by The Adobo Chronicles what specific recommendations she has in mind, Robredo said that Teddy Boy Locsin of the Department of Foreign Affairs should immediately deny Philippine visas to coronaviruses.
”If our government can deny visas to U.S. Senators, there’s no reason why we can’t do the same for coronaviruses,” she said.
She also said she would welcome being appointed by President Rodrigo Duterte as the country’s Health Czar, even if it’s just for two weeks.
That’s your VP — taking the epidemic viruseriously!
