Governor Daniel R. Fernando said that one way or another, the human race will have to heal and move on from this pandemic.
“Magdiriwang tayo kahit simple lang kasi sa panahon ngayon, humahanap dapat tayo ng pamamaraan kung paano aalalahanin at ipagdiriwang ang mahahalagang bahagi ng ating kasaysayan. Itong Singkaban, ipinagdiriwang natin para maipaalala sa lahat, na lingunin ‘yung mga masasaya, baunin natin para magamit natin sa paghilom ng lahat ng sakit na iniwan sa atin ng COVID-19. Upang sa ating pagbangon, may matatag tayong pundasyon,” Fernando said.
