COVID-19 problems emerged because the Duterte Admin didn’t listen - BAYAN



They are still at it.
The militant and leftist group Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (Bayan) has vehemently rejected the government’s claim that the country is in a better situation compared to other countries fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, reminding authorities that they chose to ignore warnings from the public.


Bayan reiterates that the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) was placed all over the island of Luzon because President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s administration did not heed clamors, as early as January and February, to restrict inbound flights especially those from China.

“The Philippines has had to resort to extreme quarantine measures precisely because of the failure of the Duterte regime to impose travel restrictions, do proper contact tracing, and recognize in a timely manner the local transmission that had been ongoing in the country,” Bayan secretary general Renato Reyes said.

“Don’t tell us we are better off. We are in this difficult situation because government downplayed many of the red flags early on. Remember that time when a patient from Greenhills with no travel history was infected with the virus, and Duque said that’s not local transmission because it’s just one person?” he asked.
The Covid-19 pandemic originated from Wuhan China.

A few days back, Department of Health (DOH) Secretary Francisco Duque III said the country has one of the lowest COVID-19 infection rates in the world despite its limited testing capacity.
