Rizal Rep. Fidel Nograles is calling for strict regulation in putting up biolabs in the country so as not to compromise public health.

Nograles can pose risks to the host country as there are speculations biolabs are dealing with very dangerous types of coronaviruses, the experiments made with them may have caused these viruses to mutate into its present forms, such that it cannot be said that the present virus occurred as a result of natural means.

It is this dangerous nature of biolabs that the Philippines should be wary on whether there are existing biolabs funded by foreign governments or corporations in the country.

“We need to strictly regulate bio laboratories in the Philippines to ensure that public health and safety are not compromised,” said Nograles.

“There are strict international protocols that have to be put in place before biolabs can operate in any jurisdiction,” he added.
