#NasaanSiBato: Netizens look for Senator Bato dela Rosa amid COVID-19 crisis

Most senators have been busier than ever as the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have been continuously spreading throughout the country. 

  • While other lawmakers have been making headlines, a netizen noticed that senator Bato dela Rosa has been missing in action.
  • The hashtag #NasaanSiBato trended on Twitter. 

Senators like Risa Hontiveros, Sherwin Gatchalian, Francis Pangilinan, and Manny Pacquiao have been actively participating in the issues surrounding the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the Philippines.

Other Senators like Bong Go and Bongbong Marcos are on quarantine as of this writing and Koko Pimentel, as well as Miguel Zubiri, are confirmed to be COVID-19 positive.

While most lawmakers are busy trying to aid the national government in handling the pandemic, one senator has been noticeably silent regarding the crisis on-hand.

A Twitter user noticed that Senator Bato de la Rosa has not been active and tweeted a joke in the form of breaking news. It said “BREAKING: Kinumpirma ng Malacañang na ang dating Philippine National Police Chief at ngayo’y senador na si Gen. Ronald ‘Bato’ de la Rosa ay buhay pa. Pero ang tanong ng publiko: Nasaan si Bato? Tumulong po tayo sa paghahanap. Use the hashtag: #NasaanSiBato.”

The hashtag #NasaanSiBato trended in the Philippines, as more and more netizens try to find him.

“When Pinas needed him the most, he vanished.”

Another netizen stated that Bato is always present when it comes to gossiping but disappears in times of crisis.

But not all share the same sentiments, some netizens said that she’d rather not hear from Bato at this point.

Other people have also tweeted out their opinions.

Senator Bato dela Rosa ranked 5th last 2019 Senatorial Elections with 19,004,225 votes.
