Mountain Province Governor Bonifacio Lacwasan said urged residents to stop the discrimination against coronavirus disease (COVID19) patients.
The Mountain Province politiko said no one wanted the pandemic to happen.
He explained that the patients didn’t intentionally get sick.
“We strongly discourage the ostracization of those who are affected or involved,” Lacwasan said.
“It is now affecting our immediate community and we know, too, that it is something that those who caught it did not intentionally do so. Covid-19 favors no one,” he added.
