Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla on Monday apologized for the unpleasant remarks he issued on social media to address the bottleneck of people and confusion in checkpoints due to the reimposed enhanced community quarantine in Greater Manila Area.
In a Facebook post, the outspoken Politiko said stress got the better of him when he said that people should not blame the local government units for the commotion in checkpoints as they have done their job to remind the public of the movement restrictions.
“Ang stress level ko po ay lagpas ulo na. Ang mga hospitals natin ay lagpas sa 30 frontliners na ang COVID-positive. Ang testing lab po natin sa DLSU-HSI ay kasalukuyang baldado. Halos kalahati sa mga tao doon ay COVID-positive,”Remulla said.
“ It is very difficult to navigate this unprecedented crisis. Please understand we’re also following directives from the IATF as well as the other government agencies involved,” he added.
Remulla bared that even some of his staff in the Capitol have been by the viral illness.
“With the ECQ extension, many businesses continue to be inoperable. We do not know until when the ECQ will remain in effect unless the government is able to control the situation better and bring down the numbers.”
