AS much as we sincerely adhere and agree to these enhanced restrictions on the movement of unvaccinated persons, we also earnestly urge the government to further expand and bring the national vaccination program against COVID-19 closer to the people, if possible, to their very doorsteps.
This was stressed Wednesday by Atty. Victor D. Rodriguez, chief of staff and official spokesperson of presidential aspirant Ferdinand ‘Bongbong‘ Marcos, Jr.
Reacting to the Department of Transportation’s ‘No Vaccination, No Ride/No Entry’ Order’, Rodriguez said the government’s response to observe extreme caution is but a necessary consequence when the health and safety of the general public are at stake.
The data as to the exponential increase in the number of Covid-19 infections are indubitable, he added.
Rodriguez stressed that the order of the DOTr to enforce a “no vaccination, no ride/no entry” in the National Capital Region (NCR) is certainly founded on sufficient valuable data that are available in its possession.
“Our people need to have jobs and to work for them to bring food on their table, send children to school and provide for other essential family needs but at the same time we recognize the government’s tough act of balancing the scales of health and economy. Kaisa po ninyo kami. Magtulungan po tayo at sama-samang bumangon muli,” Rodriguez added.
