PH will immediately purchase COVID-19 vaccines once available -Pres. Duterte

One thing is sure in this global pandemic brought about by the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or COVID-19 and that is the race to discover its cure through a vaccine is still a long way to go.

Be as it may President Rodrigo Roa Duterte has assured the nation that once there is available vaccine we as a country can and will buy it for our own use.

“(Pag) nakahanap na sila, kailangan may pera ako niyan kasi bili kaagad tayo (Once they have developed one, we need to have money because we would purchase it immediately),” Duterte said.

Developed and technologically advanced countries are racing in their quest to find a cure and from the address by the President the cure might be available in January 2021 at the very latest.

“Malapit na sila sa vaccine (They’re close to developing a vaccine). I'm sure that they have made a lot of progress in finding the vaccine,” he said.
“A pharmaceutical called Moderna… I don’t know what is the legal residence of this corporation, but mayroon na silang (but they have) tests showing positive results,” he said.

If the vaccine is successful by 2021, it would provide many Filipinos with immunity against the disease, the President said.
The President also reminded the public that the threat of COVID-19 is still high despite the relaxed quarantine protocols being implemented in the different parts of the country.

“Hanggang hindi ka matusukan ng vaccine (Until you get injected with the vaccine), you are still in danger. And even if you are really vaccinated, you are still put at risk if you are not really careful. The corona(virus) will not disappear. It is here for all time,” he said.
