Isko Moreno gets face masks from Chinese embassy
Isko Moreno got the Chinese Embassy to donate dust masks for Manila residents.
This haul of 1,000 KN90 anti-influenza masks were meant for officials and staff of the Chinese embassy in Manila, but diplomats had a change of heart and instead donated them to the Manila mayor.
The Department of Health said there’s no need to use these special masks in Metro Manila, saying it’s only a must for those areas heavily bathed by ash from Taal Volcano. Moreno said he will distribute the masks to those affected by the eruption as soon as possible.
