Marcos also appealed to his constituents to follow health protocols amid the surge of COVID-19 cases in the country.

“Mga kababayan iwasan muna po natin ang mga matataong lugar, inuman at anumang paghahalubilo ng mga tao. Kung maiiwasan din lamang ay huwag na muna po tayong maglalabas ng ating mga tahanan,” he said.

“Magsuot po lagi ng facemask/faceshield. Sumunod po tayo sa mga tagubilin ng pamahalaan laban sa COVID-19. Mag-ingat po tayong lahat!!!,” he added.
