PHOTO BY RUY L. MARTINEZSEN. Panfilo "Ping" Lacson called for a vaccine passport system "in sync with other countries" to allow easier travel to the Philippines. The senator on Monday said many returning overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) and foreign investors are reluctant to come to the country because of its tight protocols. He said they were apprehensive about the requirement for them to spend more than a week in a quarantine facility. "If you are an OFW and you are required to be quarantined for 10 days, how many days of your leave will go to waste? "Lacson also stressed anew the need to allow local government officials and other implementers of health protocols "to have enough leeway to do their job.
