“I saw pictures of Cebu yesterday and ‘yung nakita ko military. Parang hindi siya magandang visualization for the people na ‘this is a health pandemic, bakit may mga tangke sa daan?’ Sa akin, the military has been very helpful, even to our office, pero I think we should take a more public health approach,” she said.
