Unang-una, nahihiya akong humarap sa inyo, kasi may kabulastugan at hindi tamang ginawa ang Department of Health, sa inyo. Alam ninyo yon, isang bagay na hindi dapat mangyari kung pinag-isipang maigi. Kaya ang naghihirap ngayon ay kayo, lalo na ang mga magulang" Dr. Janairo stated.

Garin and they really have to monitor them, strengthen their immune system and if possible exhaust all efforts to assist them especially in mental services to ease their anxiety and depression withch could affect their livelihood, Janairo noted.

The veteran medical practitioner was quoted as saying "Malaki talaga ang epekto sa ginawa ng DOH nung panahon ni Secretary Garin. Ang gagawin talaga natin ngayon ay bantayan sila, palalakasin ang pangangatawan at kung maari lahat ma-assist lalo na sa mental health services para maibsan ang mga pag-iisip nila na maaring maglubog sa kanilang kabuhayan" Dr. Janairo stated.
