President Duterte’s Answer
“Ngayon alam ko na sabik na sabik na kayo. Para kayong taga-Bilibid, lahat tayo pati ako. Hindi na nga ako makauwi sa Davao birthday ng apo ko, birthday ng — ‘yung partner ko, birthday ng anak ko, hindi ako makauwi. Bakit? Hindi ako pinapayagan ng mayor doon na makapunta. Walang eroplano na may pasahero maka-landing sa Davao City. Ipinagbabawal ng mayor doon,” President said.
In Davao City, you can leave anytime but you cannot enter the City because of lockdown.
According to the President, his daughter will just scold him if he insists. He also respect the rules and orders in Davao City. He also admitted that even he found the new routine annoying. No one can see the virus. The opponent is invisible that’s why it id hard to fight the most right way.
It can be seen in the situation that President really made his life a role model to follow. He cannot order the people to stay at home if he does not do the said.
If the President can sacrifice those important celebrations to avoid the possibility of spreading the virus, who are we to disobey?. I
n the situation of Davao City recently, few people were confirmed positive with COVID-19 in a day. Everyday, number of recoveries arise. If we will just cooperate, there’s no reason to extend the Enhanced Community Quarantine until succeeding months. It take unity to achieve the goal.
