Gusto ko sampalin ang g*go! Duterte: Enough gov’t funds for anti-virus fight
By Prince Golez
President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday assured Filipinos that the government has enough funds to “defeat” the novel coronavirus.
“If it really goes out of hand, wag kayong mag-alala. May pera si (Finance Secretary Carlos) Dominguez. We have the money, I can assure you and we can defeat this virus,” Duterte said in a speech during his meeting with local chief executives in Pasay City.
The President added that his administration has been on top of the novel coronavirus situation in the country.
To date, the Philippines has three confirmed coronavirus cases, including one death.
“We are prepared to handle this public health emergency in case the worst scenario happens,” according to him. “Kung hindi natin kaya ang p*tang i*ang idiot na coronavirus na ito, hinanap ko gusto ko sampalin ang g*go.”
