National ID system could have helped those affected by COVID19 lockdowns - Lacson




Senator Panfilo Lacson just said what many have been saying a few months back, that if there was a national ID system in place the war against the invisible novel coronavirus 2019 disease or COVID-19 would have been different.
The national ID system became a law last August 2018, but until now has not been implemented for its rightful reason up until September 2019.

“Kung meron tayong National ID ang daling mag-contact tracing. Pag may taong nasalamuha niya na infected pala, ang National ID mas madali. Sa ngayon naghuhula tayo sino kausap nito, e may COVID pala ito?” he said in an exclusive interview with AM station DZRH radio.

It was Lacson who authored and sponsored the National ID system in the Senate, a fact he has been doing since his first time to be a senator in 2001.
But two government agencies critical to its implementation namely National Economic and Development Authority and Philippine Statistics Authority said they can only roll it out this coming September.
It would have been of great help in the overall efforts of the national government as well as the Local Government Units in providing the assistance during this COVID-19 pandemic.

“Ito ang kailangang kailangan natin lalo sa panahon ng pandemic kasi sa ngayon di magkamayaw sino dapat mabigyan ng tulong, baka may pamilyang nakakadoble, mag-asawa nakakakuha,” he said.
“Kung nagkamali distribution, may naiwan I think out of the 18M plus families may hindi natugunan na 300,000. Yan ang huling count namin 2 weeks ago, di ko alam kung natugunan yan. So kung may National ID system tayo tukoy lahat yan,” he added.
