President Rodrigo Duterte thumbed down the proposal of the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) to resume  face-to-face classes in the country.

“Nagdesissyon na po ang Presidente. Wala pa rin po tayong face-to-face classes sa bansa (The President has decided. We still have no face-to-face classes in the country),” Presidential spokesman Harry Roque Jr. said in a press briefing on Monday.

“Ang sabi niya ayaw niyang malagay sa panganib o alanganin ang buhay ng ating mga mag-aaral at guro habang wala pa pong nababakunahan sa bansa (He said he does not want to endanger the lives of our students and teacher while there is still no vaccine),” he added.

Roque said Duterte is hopeful that face-to-face classes will resume in areas with low risk for Covid-19 in August.
