There is no stopping President Rodrigo Duterte from visiting areas affected by the eruption of Taal Volcano.
Duterte downplayed concerns on his health, saying he will eat the ashfall and will pee on the volcano.
“Kainin ko pa ‘yang ash fall na ‘yun. T***… Pati ‘yang Taal na ‘yan ihian ko ‘yan. P***** i**, b***** na ‘yan. Doon ako sa crater mag…,” the President told reporters Monday night.
Despite his doctor’s warning, Duterte is scheduled to visit the affected areas today, Tuesday.
In its 6 p.m. situation report on January 14, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council said 18,187 individuals are taking temporary shelter in 118 evacuation centers in Batangas and Cavite.
