Philippines' Beatrice Luigi Gomez has cracked into the 70th Miss Universe pageant's top 5 finalists, advancing to the Q&A portion of the night.
During the question and answer portion, Gomez was asked by Miss Universe in 2016 Iris Mittenaere: "Given the ever-changing COVID situation, what is your opinion on mandating a universal vaccine passport?"
Bea prefaced her answer with the Hebrew greeting for good morning—which is Boker, or morning, and Tov, or good, (בוקר טוב)—and peace, which is shalom: "Boker tov, Israel. Shalom."
"I believe that public health is everyone's responsibility and to mandate vaccine inoculation is necessary. If mandating vaccine passport would help us in regulating the rollout of vaccine and mitigate the situation of the pandemic today, then I would agree on mandating the necessary passport vaccination. Thank you," she answered.
