STATEMENT OF SECRETARY MARTIN ANDANAR ASKING FOR PUBLIC TO REMAIN CALM AND AVOID DISCRIMINATION AMID RISK OF 2019-NCOV

(GMT+08:00) 2020-02-03 14:44:44       CRI
We appeal to the public to remain calm, level-headed, and compassionate, as we all work towards dealing with and containing the threat of the 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) spread.

As the issue of a viral outbreak affects everyone, let us not engage in discriminatory behavior, nor act with any bias towards our fellowmen. The reality is everyone is susceptible to the virus.

We should not let fear turn us against one another, especially if these fears are unfounded. We must not stigmatize people, especially when they are at their most vulnerable, but empathize with them instead.

Our country is working with other countries, their government health agencies, and with international health organizations to contain the virus from spreading. Preventing the outbreak of the 2019-nCoV is not something we can do alone.

With the reported cases of some people hoarding face masks, we ask the public not to hoard face masks and create an unnecessary scarcity, that may prevent others from taking precautionary measures to protect themselves.

Let us not resort to panic, sow fear-mongering or spread misinformation. Solidarity, empathy, and cooperation are what we need to successfully take actions that will overcome this health concern.
