Masks give false sense of security, but shortage causes panic – Vice Pres. Robredo

The Vice president of the Republic – Leni Robredo made her opinions known regarding what is happening the 2019 Novel Corona Virus- Acute Respiratory Disease (2019-nCoV-ARD).

She blames the public’s panic over the shortage of face masks on the false sense of security that people get from wearing it.

“Face masks have come to symbolize the sense of security of people that has to be addressed. It has to be explained that they’re not really the biggest help,” Robredo said in her weekly Am radio show at RMN-DXL 558.

According to the Vice President, different  schools, constituents, and private organizations have been reaching out to her office and asking where they could get supplies of face masks, with some even getting “frantic

“I think a source of the fear is that there is a lack of attention [from authorities],” Robredo said. “The lack of supply [of face masks], adds to the fear. People are confused or maybe they’re afraid that they’re not available, because they have become to symbolize protection.”

Vice President Robredo emphasizes the need and importance of proper hygiene and avoiding crowded areas.

“There’s really a need to strengthen the call of the World Health Organization on the practices that would help more than face masks,” she said.
