Duterte apologizes to parents for not allowing face-to-face classes

President Rodrigo Duterte apologized to parents after he opposed the idea of allowing physical classes amid COVID-19 pandemic.

“Ako naman nanghingi ng patawad sa inyong lahat sa nanay, tatay kasi delayed ang edukasyon ng mga bata. Patawarin niyo po ako kasi di ko kaya magbigay ng pahintulot na hindi na sila normal sa eskwelahan,” Duterte said.

“Kasi kung madisgrasyahan, buhay ito. Ang ano nito ang is delayed lang ang education ng bata pero it will normalize one of these days but I cannot gamble with the life of children mahirap yan kasi ako mananagot lahat,” Duterte added.

Duterte explained that he cannot allow physical classes until he gets a “clear picture” of “how COVID-19 works” on the health of other people.

He is also afraid that the more contagious Delta variant might also infect children during face-to-face classes.

“Kasi kung ang mga bata nandyan baka mahawa tsaka dadating itong D (Delta variant) na sinabing mas aggressive and more fatal than COVID-19 yung mother ano niya,” said Duterte.
