Nurses had to leave our ‘f#$%& country’ for lands that value them: DFA Locsin

The United States of America (USA) is now feeling the brunt of the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or COVID-19, big states like New York and California are overwhelmed by the cases pf COVID-19 that they acknowledge the need for medical professionals like doctors and nurses to augment their ranks.

Last week the US has opened and relaxed their requirements for medical professionals to apply in the mainland.

The Philippines being their best source of medical professionals most especially nurses are in a dilemma as some lawmakers are calling out the government to temporary ban the sending of medical professionals in other countries, amid our own battle with COVID-19.

“We do not SEND our nurses abroad. Our nurses are not ours. We especially we fucking public officials do not deserve to call them ours. We never helped them. They have had to flee our FUCKING Country for lands that value them,” Foreign Affairs Secretary Teddy Locsin said in a tweet commenting on news that Cagayan de Oro Representative Rufus Rodriguez is calling on suspension of sending nurses abroad.
“[DOLE] Secretary [Silvestre] Bello should suspend the sending of nurses abroad. We need our healthcare personnel here at this time of public health emergency to attend to sick Filipinos, and not to foreigners,” Rodriguez said.
“We need those nurses bound for Germany and other jobs overseas to augment our dwindling public health workforce,” he said.

The DFA chief also urged the DOH to refrain from “asking for volunteer doctors and nurses but to instead hire them and pay them professionally with competitive rates.”
