Luis Manzano reacts to accusations of overly expensive facial masks

MANILA – Luis Manzano responded to Internet users who accused him of overvaluing facial masks given the high demand of those seeking to protect themselves from the fall of ashes from the Taal volcano.

This, after Manzano responded to one of Bianca González’s posts on Twitter on Sunday, telling him that his store still sells N95 masks before posting the link to the Lucky and Lulu online store.

But several Internet users noted that the price of the masks of the Manzano store is relatively higher than that of the pharmacies.

Seeing this, some Twitter users accused the TV host of taking advantage of the situation.

Manzano, however, explained that the masks sold in his store are not like normal and are not too expensive.

“These were the prices of our suppliers 15 weeks ago, as well as the global prices, so we monopolized ba? No! Nagtaas pressed ba? No! Did we take advantage of the situation? No! Nag-iisip ka ba? No,” he said in Answer to one of your accusers.

The Taal volcano, a popular tourist attraction located in the center of a picturesque lake, threw a huge ash cloud on Sunday that moved through parts of Luzon, including Metro Manila, forcing the cancellation of flights and closing of schools and government offices.

The Department of Health has recommended the use of N95 masks in areas severely affected by the fall of ashes.
