It’s time to boost the country’s defenses against coronavirus.
Senator Richard Gordon has called on government to step up the safety precautions to prevent the spread of the latest disease that reportedly originated from China.
“We are only hours away from China — where about 139 cases of the coronavirus have already been confirmed. Being airborne and a communicable disease, I can’t stress enough that PREVENTION is better than a cure,” he wrote on Facebook.
“I call on our agencies to take measures to prevent this infection from spreading. Tayo ay pinaalalahanan na mag-ingat para sa kapakanan at ikabubuti ng lahat!” he added.
