QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – Philippines Vice President Leni Robredo is putting her money where her mouth is. Or at least is giving up the luxury of her official residence/office for a good cause.
Reacting to news reports that the Philippines has recorded its first case of local/community transmission of the coronavirus, Robredo announced today that she was vacating the Boracay Mansion in Quezon City to make room for a state-of-the-art quarantine facility for Persons Under Investigation (PUI) for suspicion of infection with COVID-19, better known as the coronavirus.
Speaking to The Adobo Chronicles, Robredo said she will just commute between Manila and her hometown of Naga City whenever she is needed. But considering that her only function as VP is to wait for something to happen to the President, her services in Manila won’t really be needed, she added.
She’ll just stay in Naga.
