Robin Padilla took to social media to slam the criticisms he received after a video of him performing a COVID-19 swab test on himself without a healthcare professional went viral.
The critics claimed that it is not safe and recommended for non-health professionals to perform self-swabbing due to the chance of making a mistake and getting an inaccurate test result.
However, Robin defended himself, saying that he knows how to perform the swab test on himself because he gets tested three times a week.
He clarified that he would prefer if there was a nurse or doctor present at the location but that he performed the swab test on himself because there were no healthcare professionals around at that time.
The action star also called those who preferred for him to wait for a healthcare professional to do the swab test as “pa-cute” and “pa-baby.”
“Kung hindi mo po kayang gawin mag isa wag mo po gawin walang pumipilit po sa inyo. Gawain po ito ng mga sanay na sa testing at magbanat ng mga Buto, lalo kapag kailangan makisalamuha sa mga katrabaho lalong lalo sa gitna ng karagatan.
“Tanggapin niyo man po o hindi sadyang may mga taong katulad namin na hindi pa baby, hindi aasa na Lang sa magaganap! Ang lahat ng paraan ay gagawin ng isang mandaragat para makapagpatuloy na makapaglayag.
“kung meron nurse o doctora abay napakaganda pati sa tanawin pero kung wala at sanay ka ng katulad po namin dahil sa isang linggo ay 3 beses po naming ginagawa ang swab test eh MANHID na Lang ang butas ng Ilong ng Taong hindi po matuto.
“Kaya hindi tayo umaasenso mga kabayani. Malakas ang loob natin sa katarantaduhan at kawalanghiyaan pero kapag sa kapakanan ng sarili at ng mga kasama sa Paligid mo ang dami natin NGAW NGAW kesa sa gawa. Konting balls lang naman po ang kailangan mga TOL
“2 taon na po ang covid kung wala ka pa rin natutunan lalo ang mag test sa sarili mo kung walang available na health frontliner sa lugar mo abay masyado ka ng nagpacute,” Robin posted on Instagram.
