Erap slams study of world’s most stressful cities
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.
