Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque has quoted Kim Chiu’s viral “classroom” analogy during a Malacañang press briefing.
Roque decided to refer to the actress’ recent gaffe as he reminded the public to remain cautious as the government relaxed its quarantine guidelines in some areas.
He expounded the government’s warning for the public to continue following health advisories to curb the spread of coronavirus by quoting Kim’s statement.
Roque, in a Philstar story, was quoted saying, “Sabi nga ng isang nag-viral na post at alam ko naman kung kilala ninyo kung sino siya. Bawal lumabas pero kapag nag-comply ka at inayos ninyo, mag-obserba ng proper hygiene, tulad ng paghugas ng kamay, pagsusuot ng face mask or face shield at pagsunod sa social distancing at iba pang health protocols, mapapa-flatten natin ang curve at ‘yung bawal lumabas ay magiging p’wede nang lumabas.”
Kim has recently gone viral for her comment following ABS-CBN’s closure. Many netizens were confused when she said, “Sa classroom, may batas. Bawal lumabas. O, bawal lumabas, pero pag sinabi, pag nag-comply ka na bawal lumabas. Pero may ginawa ka sa pinagbabawal nila, inayos mo ‘yung law ng classroom n’yo at sinubmit mo uli, ay, puwede na pala ikaw lumabas.”
Meanwhile, Roque continued to remind the public that there remains to be no cure against coronavirus and we are still not safe.
“Nandiyan pa rin ang virus habang wala pang bakuna, habang wala pang gamot. Hindi pa rin po tayo ligtas sa COVID-19,” he said.
