Amid the ongoing threat of Covid-19, Senator Bong Go on Saturday reminded the public to strictly adhere to government-imposed protocols, such as mandatory wearing of masks and face shields in public places.

The chair of the Senate health committee also urged authorities to strictly implement the mandatory mask- and face shield-wearing policy and provide free masks and face shields to the poor who cannot afford.

A study published by the University of the Philippines-OCTA Research showed that only 61% of Metro Manila respondents always or regularly use their face shields when outside their homes.

“Hindi pa tapos ang laban kontra Covid-19. Huwag muna tayo magkumpyansa. Sumunod tayo sa patakaran ng gobyerno dahil ang kapakanan naman ng lahat ang inuuna natin dito,” Go said.

“Importante ang buhay ng bawat Pilipino. Para dun sa hindi makabili ng sarili nilang mask at face shield, bigyan dapat ng gobyerno ng libre para makapag-comply sila,” he added.

Despite the importance of these basic health guideline of wearing masks and face shields, Go lamented that many poor Filipinos cannot afford them, prompting him to ask concerned government agencies to distribute them to the poor for free.

“Marami po sa ating mga kababayan ang nawalan o nahihirapang maghanapbuhay dahil sa pandemya. Dagdag pasanin pa po sa kanila ang pagbili ng masks at face shields, kaya naman po hinihimok ko ang mga ahensya ng gobyerno na magbigay ng libreng masks at face shields sa mga mahihirap nating kababayan,” he said.

“Tulungan po natin silang makapag-comply sa mga health protocols na ating ini-impose dahil sa pandemya,” Go added.
