Governor Eugenio "Bong" Lacson delivered a message during the community prayer at the Provincial Capitol building.
He addressed the employees, tackling the problems that confront the island due to the rapid spread of the coronavirus.
Lacson acknowledged the enormity of the invisible enemy, which is the virus and reminded everyone that no battle can be won without God.
He broke down when he came to the part of his message where he admitted human frailty and the possibility that people may have forgotten God in today's times.

In a previous report by KAMI, the government faced problems when they imposed the initial community quarantine, which was elevated into the now ongoing enhanced community quarantine. It also suspended transportation causing massive problems with commuters.
The coronavirus outbreak started out in Wuhan, Hubei Province of China. Scientists believed that the virus came from an animal at one of Wuhan's wet markets. At present, the Philippines is under a state of calamity while the entire Luzon is under an enhanced community quarantine.
