VP Robredo calls out the Duterte Admin again for COVID-19 mass testing




Vice President (VP) Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo made another call and urges the national government for mass testing for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) as netizens also seconded the VP for widespread testing.
Two hashtags have trended nationwide on Twitter #NoToVIPTesting and #MassTestingNowPH as the netizens slammed asymptomatic politicians who underwent COVID-19 testing despite the limited number of test kits in the country.


Vice President Robredo said the Office of the Vice President (OVP) provided the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM) with P5.3 million worth of extraction kits to aid in the nationwide distribution of test kits.

The national government has acknowledged the limited supply of COVID-19 test kits but have assured the nation that there is no need for mass testing yet according to DOH Undersecretary Rosette Vergeire.
“Sa ngayon po, hindi pa naman nakikitang kailangan nating gawin itong mass testing na ito,” Vergeire said in a press conference.
(We don’t see the need to conduct a mass testing for now.)


“Pero nasa taalaan, nasa mapa, nasa radar, na kung sakaling dumating ‘yung panahon, if we have enough resources, and the government can do it, and it is already imperative for the government to do it, gagawin po natin ‘yan kung saka sakali,” she added.

(But it is already in our plans that if the time comes that we need to conduct one and if we have enough resources and the government can do it, we will do it.)
