She explained that she favored the students who wanted to continue their schooling. CHED, she said, wanted to close the nursing schools because they didn’t have the required tertiary hospitals where the nurses would eventually be trained before they graduate and get their BS Nursing degrees.
Villar dismisses appeal by health workers: Improve their working conditions in covid 19.
Senator Cynthia Villar on Saturday dismissed the call of health workers to return Metro Manila and its adjacent areas under an enhanced community quarantine (ECQ), saying that they should just do their jobs better.
“It simply came to our notice then. They (medical frontline workers) will improve their work, ”Villar said over radio station DWIZ when asked if she agrees with medical groups’ request to place Metro Manila under enhanced community quarantine (ECQ).
(Maybe not. They should just do their jobs better.)
The senator said people will die of hunger if Metro Manila will again be placed under ECQ, which would mean a restriction of movement and the limiting of business operations.
