MANILA, Philippines – Hindi agad-agad aalisin ni Pangulong Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. ang estado ng public health emergency dahil sa COVID-19.

Ito ang sinabi ni Department of Health officer in charge Ma. Rosario Vergeire nitong Biyernes, Oktubre 28.

Matatandaan na kamakailan ay nakipagpulong si Marcos kay World Health Organization director general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

“Dr. Tedros told the President that there was a recent meeting among the higher officials of the WHO which decides on this public health emergency and he specifically told the President in the recent meeting the vote was to still continue on with the public health emergency,” ani Vergeire.

“Not yet at this time. He told that to the President and the President said ‘yes we understand,’” dagdag pa niya.

Dadahan-dahanin din umano ng Pangulo, ayon kay Vergeire ang usapin ng pag-aalis ng state of emergency dahil sa COVID-19.

“And I think the President would do this gradually… and of course he is trying to balance also. So, I don’t think there is this kind of thinking already right now immediately. Maybe in the coming months that will again discussed but the president believes and also uses the guide given by experts like Dr. Tedros,” pagtatapos niya. RNT/JGC
