Remulla jests: Hospital admission still a struggle ‘maliban na lang kung may kapit sa langit tulad ni Spox’
Hospitals remain full and admission will be difficult but not for those who have strong backer from above, Governor Jonvic Remulla said on Wednesday in what appears to be a playful jab at Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque.
“Puno pa rin ang mga ospital at mahirap makapasok – maliban na lang kung may kapit sa langit tulad ni Spox,” Remulla said in a Facebook post.
Although he did not directly mentioned Roque, Remulla was clearly referring to Roque who was heavily criticized for being easily admitted at the Philippine General Hospital while other COVID-19 patients with worse symptoms wait in line.
Remulla immediately followed up that he doesn’t mean to criticize “Spox” whom he called his “kambal.”
“Peace tayo kambal. You will always be in my heart,” Remulla said.
The two Politikos have teased each other as “kambal” after Roque, in one of his Palace press briefings, referred to Remulla as his twin because of their supposed resembling looks.
The governor added that the 2 weeks reimposition of ECQ in NCR plus is now paying off.
“Nararamdaman na ang epekto ng 2 weeks ECQ. Kahapon ay 180+ ang kaso. Mataas pa rin ito pero mababa na sa peak na 1,884 cases 10 days ago,” he said.
But he reminded people to remain vigilant and stay at home to avoid contracting the viral illness.
“Mag-ingat ng todo. Kamakailan ay namatay ang isang mataas na opisyal ng COMELEC-Cavite. Siya ay 40 years old lamang. Sa Kapitolyo lang ay apat na ang namatay sa huling limang araw.”
“Walang bulletproof sa COVID. Kahit bata pa ay tinatamaan.”
