MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It’s a battle between two math wizards: Philippine Vice President Leni Robredo and Senator Panfilo Lacson!
Robredo, who has popularized the equation “40×4=1,600,” is criticizing a recent statement by Lacson regarding the status of the country’s Covid-19 vaccination program.
Lacson said that based on his math, it will take 11 years, 8 months before the government can vaccinate at least 70 million Filipinos on the path to herd immunity.
In a statement issued by the Office of the Vice President, Robredo chided Lacson for his oversimplification of the numbers and challenged the Senator to leave the math to the true experts.
Lacson has not returned calls by The Adobo Chronicles for comment on Robredo’s criticism.
