Malacañang thought it “good” if reports that some 100,000 Chinese nationals in the Philippines had been inoculated against the novel coronavirus are true, as it means less carriers of COVID-19 in the country.

Anti-crime advocate Teresita Ang-See reportedly said that around 100,000 Chinese workers of Philippine Offshore Gaming Operator (POGO) hubs have received COVID-19 vaccines. 

Although Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque claimed he had no knowledge on the issue, he said it would be “good” as it means more protected people against the coronavirus. 

“Pero kung totoo man, eh di mabuti—100,000 less possible carriers of the coronavirus,” Roque told reporters in an online briefing. 

Philippine Ambassador to China Chito Sta. Romana said he was “not in the loop on this matter.” 

The Philippines’ Food and Drug Administration has not yet approved any COVID-19 vaccine for use in the country.
