‘Complain nang complain’: Concepcion slams group of medical doctors re use of rapid test for returning employees

Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship Joey Concepcion slams a group of doctors and members of the medical society for their constant “complaining” against the private sector’s plan of using the rapid test kits for all returning workers following the national government’s guideline transitioning of some areas to the modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ).

Concepcion said the use of the rapid test kits for employees in the private sector, is “better to test than not to test.”

“Problema nitong mga doctor, salita nang salita, wala namang ginagawa. Complain nang complain. Ang mangyayari dito kung magsasarado ulit yung ekonomiya ng Pilipinas, maraming mawawalan ng trabaho,” Concepcion said.

(The problem with these doctors is that they keep on talking but are doing nothing. They keep on complaining. What will happen if the Philippine economy closes again is that a lot of people will lose their jobs.)

“We can’t afford another lockdown. My appeal to all these doctors, if you have a better alternative, why don’t you tell us that better alternative?” he added.

“The reason why we’re doing this is because as we open up the economy, we wanna be sure that the health is not affected and that’s the only method,” Concepcion said.

The Philippine Society of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (PSMID) was against the idea of using the rapid test kits because it only creates a “false sense of security.”

Joining the PSMID in thumbing down the said policy are the following: the Philippine Medical Association, Philippine College of Physicians, Philippine College of Occupational Medicine (PCOM), Philippine Society of General and Internal Medicine, Philippine Academy of Family Physicians, and the Philippine Society of Public Health Physicians (PSPHP).
