The Manila city government gave a digital salute and kudos to medical frontliners who has been non-stop fighting against the COVID-19 for over six months through organizing a drone show at Rizal Park.
“So we can make Manileños feel that the things they see in other countries are also in Manila. This is just for starters, and we wanted our frontliners to be the first to see this,” said Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso, adding that the drone show aimed to show public attractions that compete with those seen in other countries.
“Thank you very much to you. If our job is dangerous, yours is more dangerous. You face those whose lives are in danger after they test positive for COVID-19,” he commended.
The Manila mayor also added that the city government would continue to donate personal protective equipment (PPEs), hazard pay, medical equipment, among others that healthcare frontliners need in their battle against the coronavirus.
Manila City has so far 14,246 recoveries out of 18,371 total confirmed COVID-19 cases as of September 19. The city also has a total of 3,775 active cases and 350 mortalities.
