Ruffy Biazon on 2020 disasters: Science is king

0 34

Ruffy Biazon said there’s a lesson learned the hard way from the series of unfortunate events this 2020.

The Muntinlupa congressman’s takeaway from all the nightmares this year is just how important science and research are to the development of a nation as well as the safety of its people. There’s been two tragic incidents so far, and both point to the same thing.

“2020’s first quarter message should be clear to us: Taal and COVID19 showed us that we should be giving attention to scientists just as we do to our soldiers & policemen,” the politiko said.

“Invest in them and their research. That should be part of the new normal,” he added.
