Koko Pimentel sa MMC: “I apologize”
Frenchlyn Del Corro
Manila, Philippines – Humingi na ng pasensya si Senator Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III sa Makati Medical Center matapos ang umano’y pagpunta niya sa ospital sa kabila ng pagiging positibo nito sa coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) infection.
“I apologize to MMC for being in their hospital [on] the evening of March 24, 2020 which they deemed to be a breach of their safety/containment protocols,” ani Pimentel sa pahayag.
“I never intended to breach any protocol but I realize now that my presence in MMC unnecessarily caused additional anguish and concern to the courageous frontline health workers we all depend on. I was simply there to be with my wife during the birth of our daughter,” dagdag pa nito.
Kasalukuyang nasa pangangalaga naman ng ospital ang asawa nito.
Samantala, bukas naman ang senador sa koordinasyon sa pamunuan ng ospital.
“I shall be open to any communication the MMC would want to have with me about this. I just ask for everyone’s understanding and compassion and allow me first to recover from COVID-19,” giit pa nito. Remate News Team/FGDC
