Senator Imee Marcos has drawn up a P750-billion emergency package to fight the effects of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the country.

The Ilocos Norte politiko dubber the emergency package as “Pag-ASA: Alaga, Sustento at Pag-Angat.”

The proposed fund seeks to immediate and sustained protection of health workers, provision of food and cash aid for marginalized communities, and stimulus packages to badly hit industries.

Marcos said the government’s proposed P200-billion emergency budget is not enough.

“Ilokana man ako, hindi ito ang tamang panahon para mag-kuripot ang gobyerno,” she said.

“Itodo na ang tulong kung talagang tutulong para sa proteksyon ng mga mga health workers, pagkain sa mahihirap, at sustento sa mga nawalan ng trabaho,” Marcos added.
