“We keep on planning and we keep on executing. Mahalagang nag-uusap tayo para mas nalalaman natin ang nangyayari sa paligid at ano pa ang mga kailangan. Bagaman hindi pa nawawala ang COVID-19, nagpapasalamat ako at nasasanay na tayong sumusunod sa mga health protocol, natutuwa akong nakikitang sumusunod sa batas ang mga Bulakenyo,” Governor Daniel Fernando said.
The governor also said that while waiting for the national government’s decision on the vaccine, the province will support and follow protocols so as to serve and save more lives from COVID-19.
“Hihintayin natin ang official statement ng national government at DOH (Department of Health) dahil as of now, di pa tayo pwedeng mag-procure ng sarili natin. Di tayo pwedeng magdesisyon tungkol diyan na bumili tayo ng bakuna sa sarili natin. Kapag sinabi na ng national government na okay na itong brand na ‘to saka tayo kikilos, pero nakahanda naman tayo. Magsu-supplement kami para maipambili ng bakuna at maibigay ng libre sa mga tao,” Fernando explained.
