Duterte ‘worried na worried’ over virus spread in PH – Palace
By Prince Golez
President Rodrigo Duterte is “worried” over the current situation with coronavirus in the Philippines, Malacañang said.
“Basta ang mahalaga, si Presidente ay worried na worried siya sa nangyayari,” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo told reporters Monday.
Panelo said that Duterte, who earlier placed the entire Metro Manila under a 30-day community quarantine, is doing anything possible to combat the spread of the virus, which has already killed 12 people in the country.
“Kita niyo kahit na dapat nasa Davao siya nung dalawang araw eh nandito siya, pumirme siya (at) nakipagusap lang sa lahat ng mga sector para ma-monitor niya kung ano ang nangyayari,” he added.
Duterte is scheduled to meet with the officials of the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases, military, and police later this afternoon.
