VG Relampagos explains absence from Bohol’s COVID response


He would have wanted to act swiftly had he not been battling his own duel abroad.

Bohol Vice Governor Rene Relampagos has finally explained his recent silence as his province grapples with the coronavirus. As much as he wanted to pitch in, he is constrained and stuck halfway across the globe as a high-risk patient.

“By God’s Grace, I am fine now after undergoing surgery. Unfortunately, with the COVID lockdown, I am unable to return yet from the US,” the politiko explained in a Facebook post.

He’s been on the lookout when he can return the soonest. Abangan!
