Here’s what VP Leni Robredo said about General Sinas breaching travel health protocols.
LENI ROBREDO – Philippine Vice President Leni Robredo has this reaction about General Debold Sinas violating travel safety and health protocols.
In a previous article, Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Police General Debold Sinas accordingly did not comply with the COVID-19 health protocols when he visited Oriental Mindoro as per the provincial government. He flew there with a helicopter and went straight to the regional headquarters to the dismay of the local government.
For officials traveling to other places under the new normal, it was said that they are not anymore required to pass any tests and undergo quarantine just as long as they don’t exhibit symptoms. However, after such an incident, Sinas caught the highly-contagious virus.
The issue came almost a year after his “mananita” on his birthday which earned numerous comments and heavily criticized. And the Philippine Vice President, Leni Robredo, speaking about this in her weekly radio show said that this must serve as a lesson to the people – to be responsible. She added, “We (government officials) should be the example. There is no excuse because the virus itself does not excuse anybody. Whatever the policy is on the ground, we should follow that.”
She stressed some procedures must have done to him before he entered the camp because it is an individual’s responsibility not to be “virus carriers”.
However, just recently, Calapan City Mayor Arnan Panaligan shifted the statement and stated that Sinas accordingly complied by registering online and received a confirmation. He said, “Nacorrect namin ‘yan. Hindi pa naman ma-establish na merong violation of protocol kasi ang required lang naman ay online registration at confirmation. So dumaan siya sa prosesong iyon.”
