Stop covering up mistakes, just focus on solving COVID crisis : Carpio to Duterte




The criticisms to the Duterte administration are mounting and all of them are coming from either the communist left or the political opposition.

And came former Supreme Court Senior Associate Antonio Carpio, he made himself in public again to give the President an unsolicited advice.

“National leaders should just concentrate on solving the COVID-19 crisis instead of covering up for their earlier errors and blunders in stopping the spread of the virus. That is the way they can make up for their mistakes and earn the respect of their people,” said Capio in his Inquirer column.

Carpio noted how the President lightly taken the threat of the coronavirus to which he dismissed it as a mere nuisance during the earliest stage of the outbreak.

“President Duterte at the start belittled COVID-19. On Feb. 3, 2020, President Duterte told media, ‘I assure you even without the vaccines it will just die a natural death’. Mr. Duterte added: ‘China has been kind to us, we should show the same favor to them. Stop this xenophobia thing’,” said Carpio.

“As the Senate found, Mr. Duterte’s policy allowed 536,205 Chinese nationals to enter the Philippines from Dec. 1, 2019 to Feb. 20, 2020,” he said.
Carpio said it was only last February 2 the country declared a full travel ban on China, two days after the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the coronavirus outbreak as a public health emergency of international concern.
