Senator Imee Marcos lauded Filipinos for their “diskarte” in solving the lack of personal protective equipment (PPE) for medical frontliners fighting to stop the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
The Ilocos Norte politiko said “nothing will happen” if Filipinos will wait for donations from other countries.
“Diskarteng Pinoy ang pag-asa natin para makaahon at malampasan ang krisis dulot ng COVID-19,” Marcos said.
“Walang mangyayari sa atin kung lagi lang tayo maghihintay ng supply o donasyon galing sa ibang bansa,” she added.
Marcos also urged authorities to hasten the approval of a PPE prototype submitted by the garment exports industry.
