Pampanga Governor Dennis Pineda on Tuesday said almost 4,000 overseas Filipino workers had returned to the province under the Balik-Pampanga program of the local government.

“3,882 na kabalen natin galing sa abroad ang natulungan ng Balik-Pampanga mula July 2020 hanggang nitong April 11, 2021,” he announced on his Facebook page.

“Mula sa NAIA ay sinundo natin sila pauwi sa Pampanga, pinaswab at pinag-quarantine sa New Clark City,” Pineda said.

“Dahil sa programa, sure tayo na wala silang inuwing virus sa kani-kanilang pamilya. Ligtas sila at ligtas din ang kanilang mga mahal sa buhay. Ganyan natin kamahal ang pamilyang Kapampangan,” he added.

“Dahil po patuloy ang pagtaas ng mga COVID-19 cases sa Pampanga at puno na ang nga hospitals at isolation facilities, dinidiscourage ko po ang mga kabalen natin sa abroad na kung hindi pa sila vaccinated ay saka na sila umuwi para hindi sila mahawa o makapanghawa, lalo na po ng mga senior citizens,” he said.
