It can be recalled that in an Instagram post, the veteran broadcaster penned that perhaps her generosity makes her immune from the virus.
Cristy Fermin sa post ng aniya’y 'influencer kuno' ukol sa KathNiel: “Wala pong kinalaman si Liza at Ogie”
“Imagine. Lahat nagka-COVID na. Ako never pa, and I’m ALL OVER. Thank you, Lord. Sadya akong pinagpala kase dami ko tinutulungan?”
She later on updated her post with a caption that reads, “Thank you Lord. So many sick and infected. Ive never been positive—- even as Im all over for work I have to do. Frontliner pa ako ngayon sa househelp and driver ko. Help me help others through this pandemic. Kaya natin ito.”
In today’s episode of Cristy Ferminute, Nanay Cristy reacted to Korina’s earlier post.
“Punung-puno ng mga ka-nega-hang komento ang social media ngayon na ipinatutungkol kay Ateng Korina Sanchez, 'di ba?”
“Alam mo, 'yung sinabi niya na she's so blessed na kung saan-saan siyang nakakarating, nagpupunta, pero hindi siya nagkakaroon ng COVID-19, kasi raw madami siyang natutulungan. Actually, 'yun naman talaga 'yung nakatatak sa utak ng bawat isa, 'di ba? Na ka kapag marami tayong natutulungan, pag-aadya tayo ng Diyos sa mga ganyang pangyayari. Ang tanging mali lang ni Ateng Korina, siya ang nagsalita. Siya ang nagsabi. Dapat ibang tao. Dapat sinabi niya na, 'Hay, maraming salamat, I'm so blessed. Kahit nagpupunta ako kung saan-saan para sa aking coverage sa aking programa, hindi ako tinatamaan.'”
“Dapat tayo o ibang tao ang nagsasabi ng, 'Kasi Ate Koring, you've been helping so many people kaya ipinag-aadya ka sa ganyan.'”
The columnist furthermore aired, “Doon mo makikita na kahit kapiranggot lang na hindi nagustuhang salita ng ating mga kababayan kay Ateng Korina, very relevant pa rin siya. Pinapansin, binibigyan ng kwestiyon at nane-nega siya.”
