Robredo tells ECQ enforcers: COVID-19 is the enemy, not Filipinos




Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo is appealing to the government authorities to maintain calmness and being humane during the enforcement of the Luzon-wide lockdown because of the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or COVID-19, this after some law enforcers were pushed into limelight with altercations with those citizens they are tasked to watched over.
"Sa unipormadong hanay: Maging mahinahon tayo sa pagpapaalala sa mga patakaran ng social distancing," Robredo said in a taped message uploaded on Facebook.

"Virus ang kalaban natin, at hindi ang ating kapwa Pilipino. Maging makatao sana tayo sa pagpapatupad ng anumang atas o tungkulin," she added.

(To our uniformed ranks: May we be calm in reminding the public of social distancing rules. Our enemy is the virus, not our fellow Filipinos. Let's be humane in carrying out any order or duty.)
The incidents that led to the call of the Vice President are:

-        The most recent is the Makati incident where the police officer tackled to the ground in an attempt to arrest an abusive and arrogant Spanish citizen;


-        The police officer which fired shots and killed an ex-Marawi veteran soldier after the later chided the former over an alleged quarantine violation in Quezon city; and

-        The Taguig incident where police officers who were responding to a request of some condominium residents staying around the swimming pool of the condo.


"Alam nating hanggang walang bakuna o lunas para sa COVID-19 ay makakaranas tayo ng mga bugso ng pagkalat ng sakit na ito," said Robredo.
"Patuloy ang ating paghahangad para sa isang malinaw at mas long-term na plano. Hindi dapat nagtatapos sa paglalaan ng budget ang ganito kalaking krisis," she added.

(We know that until there is no vaccine or cure for COVID-19, we will experience bursts of this disease spreading. We continue to hope for a clear and more long-term plan. A crisis this big shouldn't end with the allocation of funds.)
