VERA FILES FACT CHECK: Palusot ni Roque para bigyang-katwiran ang paglangoy kasama ang mga dolphin palpak

Basahin sa Ingles

Sa pagbibigay-katwiran sa kanyang “side trip” kamakailan sa Ocean Adventure park sa Subic, Zambales, sinabi ng Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque na hindi niya nilabag ang anumang health at quarantine regulations.

Hindi ito totoo. Panoorin ang video na ito:

Sa ilalim ng modified general community quarantine (MGCQ) — isang transition phase sa "new normal" na kondisyon — ang swimming at iba pang “non-contact na sports" ay pinapayagan basta ang minimum na pamantayan sa kalusugan ng publiko, tulad ng pagsusuot ng mga mask at pagpapanatili ng iniutos na pisikal ng distansya na hindi bababa sa isang metro, ay isinasagawa.

Si Roque, na nagsisilbing tagapagsalita din ng Inter-agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases, ay hindi ang unang opisyal na pinulaan dahil sa sinasabing paglabag sa health at quarantine protocols.

Noong unang bahagi ng Hunyo, binatikos si San Juan City Mayor Francisco Zamora matapos iwasan ng kanyang convoy ang health inspection sa isang checkpoint sa Baguio City. (Tingnan ang VERA FILES FACT SHEET: Walang 'cancer-free,' sabi ng oncologist)

Nahaharap sa kasong kriminal si National Capital Region Police Chief Maj. Gen. Debold Sinas dahil sa umano’y pagwawalang-bahala sa mga regulasyong pangkalusugan nang ipinagdiwang niya ang kanyang kaarawan sa isang "mananita," o madaling araw na harana, noong Mayo.

Bago nito, noong Marso, marami ang humiling ng pagbibitiw ni Sen. Aquilino "Koko" Pimentel III matapos na samahan niya ang kanyang asawang buntis sa ospital habang siya ay nasa self-quarantine dahil sa mga sintomas ng COVID-19. Kinabukasan inihayag ng senador na siya ay nag positibo sa sakit. (Tingnan ang VERA FILES FACT CHECK: Mali si Pacquiao; PH tinutugunan na ang 'coronavirus isyu' mula pa noong Enero)
