Pangasinan 4th District Representative Christopher de Venecia has given personal protective equipment (PPE) to media personnel covering the coronavirus disease (COVID19) pandemic in the province.
The Pangasinan politiko explained that members of the media are frontliners too.
“The media men are frontliners themselves,“ De Venecia said.
He said that the public needs information gathered by the media during the pandemic.
“Imagine a public health crisis without the media that gives the public unfettered access to information. Day in and day out, they are working, gathering information that could be relevant to the public under quarantine,” De Venecia said.
