Para safe lahat! Stella Quimbo proposes ‘double bubble’ in NCR

0 247

Marikina Rep. Stella Quimbo is proposing a modified “bakuna bubble” in the National Capital Region (NCR) as the government seeks to reopen the economy while containing the spread of COVID-19.

In a Facebook post, Quimbo said the “’bakuna bubble” should be implemented along with a “business bubble.” That means business owners must also be vaccinated against COVID-19, along with their employees.

“Pag Meron double bubble, siguradong makakabukas ang mga negosyo sa ligtas na paraan at magkakaroon na rin sila ng sapat na kita,” she said.

“Mahalaga ito sa ngayon dahil nagtataasan din ang presyo ng bilihin. Dapat sabay na alagaan ang kalusugan at ekonomiya ng bansa,” added Quimbo, an economist.

The “bakuna bubble” has been proposed by Presidential Adviser on Entrepreneurship Joey Concepcion as a way to let businesses operate instead of implementing harsh, NCR-wide lockdowns.
