SILANG, Cavite — Reiterating that the country does not need politicians but living heroes who act decisively, Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla on Monday disclosed that as he ordered the closure of the provincial hospital because 70 front-liners were persons under investigation (PUI) even with some health, economic and educational projects are in full swing.
Quoting screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, Remulla said: “Everytime we think we have reached the capacity to meet a challenge, we look up and we are reminded that the capacity may well be limitless. This is the time for heroes: We will do what is hard, we will achieve what is great.”
“Noong Sabado ay kailangan ko pong isara ang ating Pagamutan Panlalawigan ng Cavite dahil halos 70 sa ating mga frontliners ay PUI. So far, wala naman malubha sa kanila ngunit sa mga panahon ngayon araw araw na ang sugal-buhay na hinaharap nila ng buong tapang at sipag. They are the heroes, not the politicians,” the governor said.
Undaunted by the fierce battle against the invisible and deadly novel coronavirus disease, Remulla continues to push for some infrastructure projects.
“Beyond providing relief as well as opening testing laboratories and new isolation facilities, Now is also the time to show people that there is a clear future after COVID-19,” the governor said.
Remulla bared that the provincial government is now in the final stages of negotiations for the Sangley International Airport worth P550-billion investment.
“At least 10,000 jobs in construction. More than 50,000 jobs when it is operational and up to a million more jobs from tourism, transportation, and services,” Remulla said.
He added that the Cavite-Laguna (CALAX) Expressway continues its progress.
“From Mamplasan, Laguna to Cavite City to Bacoor, this massive undertaking shall largely decongest Aguinaldo Highway and Governors Drive,” he said.
The governor further said that the Bacoor-Noveleta-Rosario-Tanza Coastal Road is awaiting final approval.
“This will decongest the Western Seaboard of the province,” he said.
In the field of education, Remullla unfolded the certainty of the #CaviteFreeWiFi program meant to support the educational requirements of the students.
“The good news? Kahit tapos na ang pandemya ay tuloy pa rin ang serbisyo nito para sa ating mga mag-aaral dito sa Cavite,” the governor said.
