Richard Gomez exposes real reason for spike in COVID-19 cases in the regions


He was right to criticize the Balik Probinsya program from the very start.

Actor turned Ormoc Mayor Richard Gomez knew exactly why there’s been a surge in cases outside Metro Manila, affecting nearly all provinces which remained free from the disease for so long.

“Mabilis ‘yung pagdami [ng may COVID-19] kasi mabilis din ‘yung pagpapadala nila ng mga returnees coming from Manila and Cebu,” the politiko said in a statement.

“Hindi lahat ng LGUs kaya ang pinapadala nila. Kaya kailangan may timing,” he added.

It’s a personal journey for him, as Ormoc went from COVID-free to a sudden hotspot.
