The Kapuso network has issued a statement regarding a controversial audio clip that is circulating now and making noise on social media.
KAMI learned that the said voice recording warned the public about the imposition of martial law or a total lockdown amid the novel coronavirus crisis in the Philippines.
The woman heard in the clip told the public to buy groceries and other supplies because President Rodrigo Duterte may announce the said actions on April 20 or 21.
“Everybody, please listen. Just in case lang, if you have time tomorrow to go out, mag stock kayo ng food… In case, mag-announce si Duterte ng martial law o total lockdown… kundi Monday, Tuesday…” the woman stated.
“Pag mag-announce na siya, it will last hanggang atrenta. Meaning, as in totally, hindi na talaga tayo puwedeng lumabas, wala na talagang puwedeng makalabas,” she added.
Many social media users claimed that Jessica Soho was behind the controversial audio clip, but GMA-7 was quick to clarify the rumors in the online world.
The said network pointed out that the award-winning broadcast-journalist did not record any pronouncement regarding the COVID-19 situation in the country.
It also urged the public to refrain from sharing the said recording because it can mislead people from the truth.
“An audio clip purportedly from Jessica Soho is making the rounds on chat groups and social media. The woman in the audio clip warns of upcoming developments to COVID-19 quarantine,” GMA-7 said.
“GMA News and Public Affairs clarifies that Ms. Soho is not the woman speaking in the audio clip. Ms. Soho has not made any pronouncements to such effect…” it added.
In a previous article by KAMI, Boy Abunda admitted that he wants to interview Jessica and 2 other Kapuso celebrities on his show.
Jessica Soho, or Maria Jessica Aspiras Soho in real life, is a Filipina journalist who has won numerous awards for journalism. She already bagged an award at the prestigious New York Film Festival.
