President Rodrigo Duterte is not keen on opening of classes until a vaccine is available against COVID-19.
“I will not allow the opening of classes na magdikit-dikit iyang mga bata na ‘yan. Bahala na hindi na makatapos. For this generation, wala na matapos na doktor pati engineer. Wala,” President Duterte said in his talk to nation on May 25.
“Kasi hindi na — hindi na — wala nang aral. Laro na lang. Unless I am sure that they are really safe. It’s useless to be talking about opening of classes. That’s what I meant,” he explained.
“Para sa akin, bakuna muna. ‘Pag nandiyan na ang bakuna, okay na,” he added.
