“Wala pang bakuna at gamot sa sakit na ito (There is still no vaccine for this disease). That is why strict enforcement of existing measures and proper compliance of everyone are very crucial.”

Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go expressed this sentiment after data from World Health Organization (WHO) showed that the Philippines, despite having one of the longest COVID-19 lockdowns in the world, has the fastest-growing number of new cases among over 22 countries in Western Pacific Region.

“Kung susunod po tayo sa mga patakaran at patuloy tayong magtutulungan para maiwasan ang pagkalat ng sakit, kung mas maisasaayos rin ang ating health facilities and capabilities — ito po ang mga tanging makakapagsabi kung kailan natin malalampasan at tuluyang matapos ang krisis na dulot ng Covid-19,” he added.

[If we follow rules and help each other to avoid the spread of the virus, if we enhance our health facilities and capabilities—this is the only way we can determine if we will be able to overcome and end the crisis brought by Covid-19.]

The senator also took this chance to push for the passage of the Bayanihan to Recover As One bill, or the ‘Bayanihan II.”

Meanwhile, he also pushed for the passage of the ‘Bayanihan to Recover as One’ bill dubbed as the ‘Bayanihan II’, vowing to support necessary legislative measures that can address the public’s most immediate needs.

“We need to immediately pass the Bayanihan to Recover as One bill. Hanapan dapat ng paraan na mapondohan ang mga programang kinakailangan upang maitigil na ang pagkalat ng sakit, mailigtas ang mga naghihirap na Pilipino, at makabangon muli ang ekonomiya ng bansa. (We will look for ways to fund the programs needed to stop the spread of the disease, save poor Filipinos, and helping the economy recover),” he said.

Data from the WHO showed that the Philippines recorded 8,143 coronavirus cases since June 16, the highest among 22 countries in the region.
