Cagayan Governor Manuel Mamba urged barangay officials to focus on providing the needs of their constituents amid the enhanced community quarantine.
The Cagayan politiko said the province and the country can “do better than China.”
“Walang trabaho, walang kita, at walang makakain ang mga tao. Magkakaroon ng social unrest at anarchy kapag nangyari ito. Hindi pwedeng pumunta tayo sa ganitong sitwasyon,” Mamba said.
“We have to save something for the future, so let us reduce the infection to its barest by quarantine,” he added.
Mamba explained that the situation will quickly revert back to normal if people will strictly follow quarantine procedures.
“Mapapaiksi natin ito kung susunod tayo. Lulugmok ang ekonomiya natin kapag nagtagal ito sa mas mahabang panahon pa,” he said.
