They added that the Department of Health (DOH) monitors everyone who owns IDs.
"Sa mga hindi nakaka-intindi, ang pagiging PWD ay hindi kailangang naka wheelchair lang. May dalawang uri po ng PWD, yung may apparent disability, tulad ng naka wheelchair, at yung non-apparent tulad ng may epilepsy, stroke and cancer survivors, lupus, etc."
"Nawa'y mas maintindihan ito ni Mr JM Rodriguez. hindi po napepeke nang madali ang PWD ID dahil may database po ang DOH na nakamonitor lahat ng may ID."
JM Rodriguez is an actor, singer, and also a businessman who owns a club.
