Manila, Philippines – Nilinaw ng Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) na hindi kasali ang United Kingdom (UK) sa 7,000 deployment cap ng healthcare workers sa abroad.

Paliwanag ni Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III nakapag-request ang UK ng  exemption sa deployment cap bago pa ito ipatupad noong Enero 1, 2021.

“I think it’s just a question of fortune. Because even before we were running out of healthcare workers, the United Kingdom government requested for an exemption. At that time, we were in a position to deploy as many healthcare workers that we want,” dagdag ni Bello.

Makaraan nito ay nagtakda na sila ng limitasyon sa health workers na dinedeploy dahil baka Pilipinas naman ang kulangin  sa frontline medical personnel para sa pandemic response.

 “They were just lucky na they were able to come up with a request even before we had a fear for we were running out of our own healthcare workers.”
