The President also said that people were really enjoying the view of Manila Bay with the “white” dolomite sand somehow. Moreover, the President said that critics will always find fault with what the government was doing.

To recall, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) started putting “white” dolomite boulders from Cebu that were being crushed and brought to Manila Bay.

With this, several celebrities — including Gretchen Ho, Nikki Valdez, and Alessandra de Rossi — expressed their own opinion about the “white sand” at Manila Bay.

Prior to the President’s statement, the Department of Health issued a statement regarding the mass gathering at the Manila Bay, saying that it was a stressful situation considering that COVID-19 was still present in the country.
