‘The 2019 Plague” Day 175’

 .

MANILA, Philippines — Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson was spotted during his morning run clad in a white t-shirt with a logo that reads “PHILIPPINES.”

The British figure is reportedly getting back into shape after surviving novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), for which he was admitted last month in St. Thomas Hospital, London.

While Johnson has not issued a public statement over the “gesture,” Internet users are saying that his attire was both no coincidence and clearly in tribute to Filipino healthcare workers serving abroad.

An estimated 200,000 Filipinos live in the UK, including around 21,000 healthcare workers employed by the National Health Service (NHS) and other private hospitals, according to Philippine Ambassador to London Antonio Lagdameo.
