At the special session of Congress Monday, Cayetano and Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea carried a sign urging the public to stay at home during the coronavirus quarantine period. They tried to emulate the famous call of health workers for people to observe home quarantine.
“Together with doctors and frontliners, we went to work for you so please stay home for us,” the sign read.
