President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday said he’s “not comfortable” with the proposal to relax the quarantine protocols for returning overseas Filipino workers (OFWs).

Duterte made the remark after Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III complained about the length of time returning OFWs have to be quarantined.

Bello lamented that the current quarantine protocol of seven- to nine-day stay in a quarantine hotel has diminished their funds.

“I’m not quite comfortable with the relaxation that’s being brought about now,” the Chief Executive said in a televised address.

“I am not ready for a compromise, lalo na ngayon. Yung ibang sakit siguro, puwede pa yung mga rabies rabies diyan. Pero ito, talagang as you have said talagang dapo dito, dapo doon and then you have the exponential problem how to take care of the Philippines,” he concluded.
