Binay to PCOO: “get their priorities straight” PCOO should prioritize info drive re Covid-19

Senator Nancy Binay has a simple message to the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) amidst the big threat of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and that is to “get their priorities straight.”
“I hope PCOO gets its priorities straight. Yung isang oras na video documentary on drug war eh baka pwede rin gumawa ng kahit 2-minuter na infomercials in different dialects. It makes public health officials’ jobs harder kapag may mga taong na ‘di naman bihasa sa public health ang nagsasalita para sa DOH, and making it difficult for people to know who to trust,” Binay said in a statement on Sunday.

“Kailangan mag-step up ang ibang agencies at PCOO in elevating the ante in risk communication. Wag na muna nilang ubusin ang oras nila sa kung anong roadshow sa Europe dahil dapat Pilipinas muna ang bigyan natin ng focus para labanan ang paglaganap ng Covid-19,” she added.

Senator Binay stressed that “we are at a crucial point where communication is vital in confronting a state of public health emergency.”

Binay said that every help Department of Health needs 
“all the help from legit government communication portals in providing factual, timely and honest information to a near-panicking public.”

Over the weekend the Department of Health (DOH) raised Code Red, sub level 1 with a confirmation of local transmission which involved a 59 year old woman.

The Health Secretary also recommended the declaration of a state of public health emergency to which the President Rodrigo Roa Duterte had agreed to.
