Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said that the public should steer clear of mass events and gatherings that increased the risk of getting or spreading the coronavirus disease, continue to follow health protocols, and get inoculated once the opportunity comes.

Roque told the public during an online briefing Tuesday that just because the health care utilization rate was low didn’t mean they can go to superspreader events.

Kaunting tulog na lang po, magkakaroon na tayo ng vaccine protection eh bakit naman ngayon pa kayo pupunta sa mga superspreader events?” Roque asked.

The national government had prohibited mass gatherings in areas under community quarantine except for those related to humanitarian activities, government services, and religious activities at limited venue capacity.

As the coronavirus disease remained a threat to public health, Roque echoed President Rodrigo Duterte’s appeal for people to continue to wear masks, wash hands, keep a safe distance from others, and get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Roque also maintained that the best COVID-19 vaccine was the one that was already available.

Huwag na huwag na kayong pupunta sa superspreader events nang abutan natin ang bakuna at hindi ang sementeryo,” Roque said.

Roque’s urgent appeal came after dozens of people had tested positive for COVID-19 after recently attending a pool party in Quezon City.
