No publicity stunt: Robredo’s daughter volunteers for COVID-19 testing project in Malabon


Vice President Leni Robredo’s daughter volunteered to join her mother’s initiative to test people for COVID-19 in Malabon.

It was Malabon Mayor Len Len Oreta who shared information about the presence of Tricia Robredo, a physician, at the Office of the Vice President’s “Swab Cab” initiative on Tuesday, April 6.

“Nagulat ako ng malaman ko na si Dra. Tricia Robredo ang attending doctor sa ginawang SWAB CAB kanina,” Oreta said.

The mayor thanked Tricia for her volunteerism, as well as her mother for the project.

“[M]ore than the number of Antigen Tests you conducted today, we are more thankful for the inspiration your family provides. For us to overcome this pandemic we all have to do our part. Caring for others is another form of cure,” he said.

The OVP launched the SWAB CAB in a bid to ramp up COVID-19 testing amid the surge in cases in Metro Manila.
