By now, people already understand that Covid-19 must not be taken lightly. Almost all Filipinos know someone in their network who got the virus. May it be family members, colleagues, or friends. Therefore, discipline is a must in following the pandemic safety protocols, Bongbong Marcos said. The country could be ready for this kind of Delta virus mutation. To prioritize the healthcare system is a must. Just like what his father had in his plans, he added. So, stay at home once again ASAP.
