“We have long heard the saying that the only thing that will redeem mankind is cooperation. This is a saying which we must think about as we face the hurdles of this pandemic. There is no way that we can save ourselves by being greedy. That will only worsen our situation. Cooperation is the key. With strong cooperation and collaboration of efforts, there is nothing we can’t achieve.” Said PMGEN SINAS
