Speaking to CNN Philippines'The Sourceon Friday, Binay called the revised policy a"welcome development" but she noted that it could result in confusion among the public."Parang ang consistent lang is the inconsistency,"she said.

[Translation: It seems that the only consistent is the inconsistency.]"Hindi mo pwedeng suotin in public places pero pagpasok mo ng bus kailangan mo namang suotin,"she added."So at the end of the day, kailangan pa ring bumili ng ating mga kababayan ng face shield, which for us, is mukhang di naman kailangan kasi nga paulit-ulit naman nating sinasabi tayo lang yata ‘yung bansa na nagre-require ng face shield."

[Translation: You can't wear it in public places but when you enter the bus, you need to wear it again. So at the end of the day, our people still need to buy face shields, which for us, is unnecessary because we keep on saying it seems like we are the only country that requires the use of face shields.]
