QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – In a post on her Facebook page, Leni Robredo announced that all her concerned staff at the Office of the Vice President (OVP) tested negative for Covid-19. It is presumed she did, too.
Robredo and staff went into self-quarantine last week after they reportedly came in close contact with someone who tested positive for the coronavirus.
What Robredo didn’t disclose was that she and her staff tested positive for being “nega,” a term widely used to describe Filipinos who display a negative attitude about social, political and other issues that beset the country. Similar to what many know to be “crab mentality.”
Robredo and the OVP are known for their generosity in criticizing every move or policy of the Duterte administration in order to create a semblance of some opposition — something that many describe as a desperate survival technique.
