Sen. Hontiveros Want to Deport Chinese Nationals Involved in Underground Hospital
Senator Risa Hontiveros wanted to deport those Chinese nationals who were involved in an underground hospital found in Clark, Pampanga.
Hontiveros said Thursday, Chinese nationals involved in the underground facility for foreign patients positive with coronavirus disease (COVID-19) discovered in a leisure park located at Clark, Pampanga, should be deported.
“Deport and blacklist these criminals. Hindi pwedeng ang higpit natin sa mga Filipino pero maluwag tayo sa mga Chinese na sangkot sa krimen,” Hontiveros said in a statement.
She added, these criminals should be deported and barred from entering again the country as based on the report of GMA News. While the Philippine government is working hard to ease the crisis in the country, those Chinese freely roam and pose risk to the health of the public amid the pandemic.
“While we are working hard to protect our people from the virus, these criminals freely roam and pose danger to public health. This blatant disregard of our laws should merit immediate deportation and blacklisting,” she said.
Previously, Police have discovered an underground hospital for Chinese nationals who have been infected with coronavirus from a former leisure villa with seven-bed capacity and has its own drugstore, whose medicines are all from China and are not registered with the Food and Drug Administration.
Medical practitioners of the said hospital were not licensed to practice in the country and unregistered medicines labeled in Chinese characters were also recovered. Those involved were also charged for violating the Food and Drug Administration Law, Medical Act of 1959, and the Hospital Licensure Act.
