Mel Aguilar put her foot down in cracking down on overpriced protective gear amid the novel coronavirus scare.

The Las Piñas mayor had a stern warning for suppliers and stores selling surgical masks, N95 masks, and rubbing alcohol in the city, saying they had no right to unduly jack up the retail price of these products to take advantage of overflowing demand.

“Ang mahuhuling lumabag ay may katumbas na karampatang parusa.Bawal din ang pag-hoard ng mga nasabing produkto,” the politiko said, threatening that the city’s Business Permit and Licensing Office would inspect and penalize outlets found violating the rules.
