GoNegosyo Founder Joey Concepcion expressed his support of President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.’s decision to lift the mask mandate.
In an interview, he said: “People can still choose to wear their face masks and keep a safe distance from others. If they are not confident about their protection, they can continue to observe the protocols.”
He also recognized that Filipinos have an “immunity” to the virus as cases often fluctuate recently. “The infection waves go up, and then they go down. This must mean that we have some natural immunity already as we are seeing fewer severe cases. People know now what to do if they get infected, and that is to get tested and to isolate.”
