Manila Mayor Isko Moreno is thankful that he has a physician as vice mayor to turn to during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Moreno expressed gratitude to Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna as he paid tribute to medical frontliners on Day of Valor.

“Nagpapasalamat ako sa Diyos at sa mamamayan ng lungsod na binigyan nila ako ng Vice Mayor na gaya ni Dr. Honey Lacuna, na hindi lamang sobra ang dedikasyon sa tungkulin kungdi buong-pusong handang lumagpas sa tawag ng tungkulin upang tumulong sa ehekutibo, partikular na sa inyong lingkod,” he said in his April 10 column for Abante Tonite.

Moreno said Lacuna and her husband, Manila Health Department chief Arnold Pangan, have been working non-stop even on weekends to ensure the delivery of health services to Manila residents and oversee the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccination program.

“Marapat lamang na hilingin sa lahat na ating ipagdiwang an gating ‘Day of Valor’ sa pagpupugay ng ating mga ‘unsung heroes’ na nagpamalas ng labis na katapangan sa kani-kanilang ‘fields of endeavour’ sa pamamagitan ng pagsisilbi sa ‘frontlines’ ng laban sa COVID-19 na kinakaharap ng ating bansa,” he said.
