‘Lahat ng ari-arian ng gobyerno’: Palace eyes selling gov’t assets for Covid-19 vaccine
By Prince Golez
The government is considering selling its assets to buy coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccines, Malacañang said Friday.
There are no approved treatments to cure or prevent Covid-19 at this time.
“Basta po mayroon ng gamot diyan sa Covid-19, basta may bakuna, ibebenta natin lahat ng ari-arian ng gobyerno para makabili po tayo para sa ating mga kababayan,” Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said in a televised press briefing.
“Iyan po ang paninindigan ni Presidente – buhay muna bago ari-arian,” added Roque.
As of July 3, the Philippines has recorded 40,336 confirmed cases, with 11,073 recoveries and 1,280 fatalities.
