0 109

Makati Mayor Abby Binay appealed for public understanding as the city government takes steps to contain the spread of the highly transmissible Omicron variant of COVID-19.

In her January 10 column for Pilipino Star Ngayon, Binay said COVID-19 continues to pose a threat even if it could only cause mild symptoms for vaccinated individuals.

She said people should continue following health protocols and practicing good hygiene.

“Muli ko pong hinihingi ang inyong tiwala at ­pang-unawa. Hayaan po sana ninyo kaming gawin ang mas nakabubuti para sa karamihan. Ang sabi nga po ay “the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few”. Sa usaping ito ay public health at safety ang dapat mangibabaw,” Binay said.

“Napakarami na po nating isinakripisyo para maitawid ang Makati at ang mga mahal nating Makatizen sa pandemyang ito. Samahan at pagtiwalaan n’yo po sana kami hanggang sa huli,” the mayor added.
