Miss World Philippines organization will prioritize Miss Eco Philippines Kelley Day amidst COVID-19 concerns in Miss Eco International.
In a report on GMA Entertainment, the Miss Eco International was under fire as news spread that some candidates allegedly had tested positive for COVID-19.
Last April 6, the Miss World Philippines organization clarified that they’re “coordinating closely” with its partner organization and that Miss Eco Philippines Kelley Day remained its “topmost priority.”
The statement came after the Miss Eco International organization cited in a deleted Instagram post that they’re doing the best they can to take “good care” of all candidates.
“All accusations made publicly against us may have taken out of proportion. We are trying our best to coordinate with everyone, including the ladies who are still here in Egypt. And we have fulfilled our duties as promised. And we’re taking good care of all our infected queens. We thank all our national directors and candidates for their support and understanding,” Miss Eco International organization said in a statement.
GMA Entertainment reported that many beauty pageant pages have alleged that some contestants, officials, and national directors were stranded in Egypt after testing positive for COVID-19.
Due to this, Miss Peru’s national director Jessica Newton had decided to cut ties with the Miss Eco International organization and said that they won’t be sending any beauty queen at the Miss Eco International.
Meanwhile, Kelley finished first runner-up in the said competition, with Miss South Africa Gisselle Uys winning the crown as Miss Eco International.
