The spokesperson also warned retailers from advantage of the calamity to increase prices of basic goods and commodities.

“Ang pakiusap po ng Presidente [Rodrigo Duterte] sa panahon po ngayon ng aberya, sana po bayanihan. Yung ating mga nagbebenta na mga kailangan ng ating mga kababayan, sana naman po wag pagsamantahalahan,” he said.
