Dennis A. Uy, chairman of shipping and logistics firm 2GO, has issued a statement clarifying that the use of two vessels as offshore quarantine facilities for COVID-19 patients is at no cost to the government.

The reported P35-million payment “was an offer made by the [Department of Transportation], for which we had no plans of accepting,” said Uy. He further bared that the actual cost to operate the vessels as quarantine facilities is at P260 million, which was intended to be a donation.

“As Chairman of 2GO, I have conferred with other shareholders and have given explicit
instructions to waive the P35 million expected payment from the government; and if necessary make good the said amount out of my own funds to cover for the expected expenses to operate the said ships,” stated Uy.

“I do believe that now, more than ever, in the time of COVID-19, we as Filipinos, whether in private or in government, have to work together, jointly make the necessary sacrifice, stand together to safeguard the lives and safety of our countrymen,” he added.
