MANILA, Philippines- Inulit ni Pangulong Ferdinand  Marcos Jr. ang kanyang pangako na lilikha ng “enabling environment” para sa  research sa bansa pamamagitan ng pagsusulong na makalikha ng “local virology institute and disease prevention and control center.”

Bahagi ito ng pahayag ni Pangulong Marcos sa  kanyang naging pagdalo sa 15th Philippine National Health Research System (PNHRS) Week celebration sa Clark Marriott Hotel sa Clark Freeport Zone, Pampanga.

“As your President, I hope my presence here today gives a clear signal that this administration continues to support your endeavors so that together, we can create an enabling environment for the Filipino research community that fosters collaboration and cooperation that will yield solutions that will make lives better for our fellow men and women,” ayon sa Pangulo.

Tinukoy ni Pangulong Marcos kung paano ang agarang pagpapasa ng batas na lilikha sa Virology Institute of the Philippines (VIP) na “consolidate disparate research, knowledge, and data”, habang ang pagpapasa  ng batas na lilikha naman sa Philippine Center for Disease Prevention and Control ay paghahanda ng bansa  para sa“unfortunate warnings” na may kinalaman sa pandemiya.

 “We have been in consultation with the House of Representatives and the Senate to create these agencies. We will continue to work so that our people are safer, so that our citizens have better access to health care, and so that the quality of our health care will improve,” dagdag na pahayag nito.

Samantala, pinuri naman ni Pangulong Marcos ang health researchers ng bansa para sa kanilang “unparalleled commitment” para tulungan ang bansa sa pagtugon sa pandemiya.

Tinukoy ang sarili niyang karanasan matapos mahawa ng coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) para sa kauna-unahang pagkakataon noong  Marso 2020,  sinabi ni Pangulong Marcos na “intellectual humility helped researchers hone their competencies and gain new insights from other experts.”

“For the first time in our experience, I asked the doctor and I said, what is happening and he said, ‘I don’t know.’ ‘What are you going to do to cure me?’ ‘We don’t know.’ That is the situation that we were in. There was a total lack of information, of knowledge about this new pandemic. That is why the work that you did, that developed – the genome sequencing so that we could follow and identify and detect the different strains as they came about, the tests kits that you were able to develop for the local community, the modeling that was done – this was all a fruit and of your partnership, and it is something that has never been seen before,” aniya pa rin.

 “A key element of the work that you do is the cooperation: Different agencies have come together and removed all the barriers in terms of scientific research in exchange of information of help in facilities, help in using all of the laboratories so that we are able to maximize our efforts. This has been the key to the successes that you have enjoyed, and the successes you will enjoy,”pahayag pa nito.

Aniya pa,  ang research institutes ay mapagbigay sa pagbabahagi ng impormasyon”at an unprecedented rate,” sinabi ni Pangulong  Marcos na natuto ang bansa na pagaanin ang iba’t ibang problema na nagsuluputan sa panahon ng pandemiya.

 “I think we are better prepared because we have formed and we have had experienced during the Covid-19 pandemic. And that, I think, still remains the key element to our success,”dagdag na pahayag nito. Kris Jose
