Manny Pacquiao feels he must be a visible presence, particularly for poor Filipino people, during the coronavirus pandemic.
Pacquiao, a senator in his native Philippines, told the Manila Bulletin on Saturday that “he’s not afraid to die” while trying to help people.
Pacquiao expressed concern, too, that looting will take place if people “living in the streets” aren’t fed.
Pacquiao has made numerous public appearances and has tried to reassure residents fearful of COVID-19 spreading even more.
He has been very vocal in his support of medical personnel testing and treating Filipinos as well.
To assist their cause, he has donated five buses to transport healthcare workers around Manila, the capital and second-most-populated city in the Philippines.
