Joy Belmonte promises to shoulder all medical bills of child with polio in QC
Quezon City unfortunately became host to the first kid with polio in Metro Manila.
Mayor Joy Belmonte was baffled because she learned that the kid got vaccinated, but there was apparently a strain that was not covered and that was exactly what he contacted.
“I visited the child who was diagnosed with polio in Quezon City. We shall shoulder all his medical costs and triple our efforts to ensure that 100% of our children aged 5 and below are vaccinated against polio in the next round starting January 27 onwards,” the politiko said.
Her other appeal: “Also let’s keep our environment clean and make sure our children wash their hands as often as possible. Nothing will protect oue children more than good hygiene and a sanitary environment.”
