It was the Private sector who first to act vs COVID-19 - Poe




Senator Grace Poe has lauded the role and importance of the private sector in the country’s fight against the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or COVID-19.

He praised the private sector’s early action in the fight against the coronavirus amid what was described as the Duterte administration’s slow response in some important areas in the fight against its infection spreading against the local population.



“Honestly, I think it was the private sector that acted immediately when this happened,” Senator Poe said during an online seminar on the role that public private partnerships play in economic recovery as the COVID-19 crisis unfolds.

“It was through the private sector’s efforts that we had mass testing immediately. Even the quarantine sites were set up by many private sector groups,” Poe said.


The lady senator notes the private sector’s role in the procurement of the much needed and very important personal protective equipment (PPE) most especially for the medical and health workers.

“Even donations of the PPEs came from the private sector initially,” Poe said.



Poe is one of the fourteen senators who signed the resolution asking for the resignation of Department of Health (DOH) Secretary Francisco Duque III, which they blame for the late response of the DOH against the coronavirus pandemic.

“We really also thank the private sector for their efforts because, frankly, without your support, the government could definitely not have done or achieved what it has at this point,” Poe said.
