The Philippines bought face masks from China because it already had a ready supply of them, says President Rodrigo Duterte.

“China [residents] all along were wearing masks even before the pandemic because in China — I went there several times — you have to wear a mask because of the pollution produced by cars,” Duterte said, speaking in Filipino.“The people there are used to it. That’s why they have supplies. These traders know right away where to find [the masks]. If you say you need it, they can easily find it there,” he added.

He also said face masks procured there were not hastily manufactured since China had the supply all along.“Because the question here is maybe they [the masks] were rushed, manufactured immediately just so they can make it to the bidding,” Duterte said. “China already had a stock because almost all the people there were buying [masks] because of the pollution.”

Question is.. Bakit mahal ang sa kanila kay sa local?. Oversupply ang sa kanila so dapat mas mura.

You are criminally liable to the Filipinos for not implementing safety precautions before the pandemic happened.
