S&R Confirmed that Koko Pimentel Shopped at their Store

Koko Pimentel confirmed to have broken his COVID-19 quarantine at least twice. Member of a shopping chain in S& R confirmed on Thursday, March 26, 2020, that Senator Aquilino "Koko" Pimentel III went in BGC, Taguig City, on March 16, 2020.

“It was confirmed that the senator was at S&R BGC on March 16, 2020. CCTV footage showed him checking out at counter 13 at exactly 1:59 pm,” - S&R personal said in a statement that is posted on their official Facebook page. S&R issued the statement in response to a Social Media Post that Senator Koko Pimentel just tested positive for the COVID-19 Test.

"As a result, S&R employees who were in contact with the senator were already placed in quarantine. S&R BGC also took extra disinfection steps," the shopping chain assured its customers. S&R also reiterated that they are taking precautions to prevent the spread of the pandemic disease (COVID-19).

By saying taking precautions S&R means it. They've already cast daily disinfection of stores, checking on their employees' health, and constant sanitation of areas in the stores that are possible points of contamination caused by the Senator.

Pimentel found out that he tested positive for the highly-contagious disease while inside the hospital on Wednesday. He has since been criticized both by the medical community and regular citizens who have been in home quarantine to prevent the spread of the new virus.

 The Makati Medical Center released a strongly-worded statement condemning Pimentel for exposing both patients and the hospital's medical workers to the virus. Under the Department of Health protocol, the senator should have gone on a 14-day self-quarantine from March 14 to March 28 as he was already considered a person under investigation (PUI).
