“Our goal is mabawasan o mapaliit yung porsyento ng may mamatay. Wala na tayong magagawa sa impeksyon, pero may magagawa tayo na maproteksyunan ang tao (to reduce the percent of deaths [related to COVID-19]. We can’t do anything about infection but we can try to protect the people),” said Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso during the 24-hour campaign launch at the Quirino Grandstand.
