Stay vigilant vs COVID-19, Robredo urges public

While she is hopeful about the country’s decreasing coronavirus cases, Vice President Leni Robredo said this should not be a reason for Filipinos to be complacent and they must continue to be vigilant against COVID-19. Vice-President Leni Robredo (OVP / Facebook / FILE PHOTO / MANILA BULLETIN) Robredo, in a Facebook post, said the people must maintain all the necessary precautionary measures and health protocols despite the improving COVID-19 situation.

We’re seeing the fruits of that now,” she said......»»
