Duterte re COVID-19: It could last for 2 years



It could last for two years.

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte during his recent public address has cautioned Filipinos not to rush into false conclusions in solving the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, saying it could last for two years.


“Kapag hindi naayos itong COVID-19, mapurnada talaga tayong lahat. Huwag ninyong madaliin. Sabihin ko sa inyo, think of COVID-19 sa ganitong sitwasyon: Tatakbo ito ng two years,” Duterte said in an address aired early Thursday.

[If the COVID-19 problem is not fixed, we have all failed. Don’t rush it. Let me tell you, think of COVID-19 in this situation: It could run for two years.]

The President said he already saw this coming, claiming he was the first leader to place a lockdown in Asia to combat the virus.

“Ito nakikita ko na noon pa. Itong COVID na ‘to sinsusundan ko talaga. Ako ang pinakaunang lahat naglockdown kasi nasusundan ko na ang storya,” he said.


[I saw this coming long before. I’ve been following this COVID. I’m the first to place a lockdown because I’ve been following the story.]

“Sabi ko nagbabasa naman ako, different sources of knowledge — Facebook, everything, lahat ng what i can get my hands on to study the matter because presidente ako. Dumating nga,” he added.

[I said I’ve been reading about it from different sources of knowledge — Facebook, everything that I can get my hands on to study the matter because I’m the President. And so it came.]


Duterte highlighted the fact that there is still no answer to the crisis, except a vaccine.

“COVID, anong sagot? Vaccine. Walang vaccine? COVID stays,” he said.

[COVID, what’s the answer? Vaccine? No vaccine? COVID stays.]
