Malacañang commended the frontliners in the fight against COVID-19 for rising to the challenge just like how the country’s national hero Dr. Jose Rizal did more than a century ago. The country commemorates the 159th birth anniversary of the Filipino martyr on Friday, June 19. Presidential spokesman Harry Roque said June 19 reminds the Palace how Rizal stood up against conquerors despite his young age. “This occasion reminds us of Dr. Rizal’s young life, dedicated to service, which rings a bell in these challenging times,” he said Friday morning.
