Kongresista at staff na dumalo sa special session naka-quarantine
LAHAT ng mga kongresista at staff na pumunta sa special session ng Kamara de Representantes noong Lunes, Marso 23, ay kailangang sumailaim sa 14-day self quarantine.
Ito ang sinabi ni House Secretary General Jose Luis Montales matapos na umamin si ACT-CIS Rep. Eric Yap na siya ay nagpositibo sa coronavirus disease 2019.
“Following protocols, all the Members and employees who attended the Special Session will go on self-quarantine,” ani Montales.
Kasama ni Yap na dumalo sa sesyon si Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano, House Majority Leader Martin Romualdez at 19 na iba pang kongresista at 10 staff ng Kamara.
Dumalo rin sa sesyon sina Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea, DILG Sec. Eduardo Año, at DBM Sec. Wendel Avisado.
Ayon kay Romualdez wala siyang close contact kay Yap pero siya ay sumasailalim na sa self-quarantine.
“To put on record, I have not developed any symptom of the COVID-19. I’m in the pink of health and well enough to continue performing my duties as House Majority Leader and will activate my work-from-home system,” ani Romualdez. “Self-quarantine as a precautionary measure to avoid potential infection is the more prudent way of helping President Duterte’s campaign to defeat COVID-19. In this regard, I also asked my staff who was with me last Monday to do the same thing.”
Samantala, sinabi ni Montales na hindi pa nito nakukumpirma na nagpositibo rin sa COVID-19 ang isa pang kongresista.
“We haven’t confirmed the case of another member. Our Member hasn’t reported if he had received the official confirmatory result from RITM (Research Institute for Tropical Medicine).”
