Joy Belmonte may have been too hands-on with the city’s coronavirus response.

Quezon City Rep. Kit Belmonte worried for his cousin who is the first mayor in Metro Manila to contract COVID-19, although largely a mild case.

“Walang kinikilala ang virus na ito. Mula sa mahihirap nating kababayan hanggang sa ating mga pinuno, lahat pwedeng tamaan,” Kit said, explaining how life has been tough on the politiko since the lockdowns started.

“Ang pagiging hands-on sa mga Special Concern Lockdown areas at health centers ni Mayor Joy ang nagdagdag sa panganib na mag-positibo siya sa COVID-19. Bagama’t kailangan niya mag-quarantine, tuloy pa rin ang kanyang trabaho,” he added, speculating how she got the disease. “Mahusay ang sistemang kanyang binuo at pinamumunuan. Tuloy pa rin ang pag-responde, pagbibigay ayuda at serbisyo ng ating lokal na pamahalaan.”

He then asked for the speedy recovery of Mayor Joy so that she can go back to serving in full swing.
