Erap slams study of world’s most stress­ful cities

The Philippine Star - - METRO - – Jose Rodel Cla­pano

Mayor Joseph Estrada on Fri­day ques­tioned the cred­i­bil­ity of a group whose study iden­ti­fied Manila as among the world’s most stress­ful cities.

In a tele­phone in­ter­view with The STAR, Estrada said he is not fa­mil­iar with the United King­dom-based dry clean­ing and laun­dry ser­vice Zip­jet, which re­port­edly con­ducted a study and ranked Manila as the world’s 10th most stress­ful city.

“It sounds like a fake news. I don’t know that group which re­port­edly con­ducted the study. It seems like there is a con­certed ef­fort to dis­credit Manila as the coun­try’s cap­i­tal city,“Estrada said.

He said he is do­ing ev­ery­thing to bring back the old glory of Manila.

Zip­jet’s study re­port­edly an­a­lyzed 500 lo­ca­tions world­wide based on th­ese fac­tors: pol­lu­tion, traf­fic lev­els, pub­lic trans­port, per­cent­age of green spa­ces, fi­nan­cial sta­tus of cit­i­zens in­clud­ing debt lev­els, phys­i­cal and men­tal health and the hours of sun­light the city gets per year.
