Risa to Duterte Admin : Rethink militaristic, police-centered strategy vs COVID-19




Opposition senator Risa Hontiveros has a mouthful for the Duterte administration’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
Hontiveros said with the series of all record breaking numbers of positive COVID-19 cases in the country he is urging the government to stop its militaristic approach of problem the deadly virus from Wuhan, China.

"We need to rethink our militaristic and police-centered approach to the problem," Hontiveros said.

It is the opinion of the senator that "heightened medical visibility," is more necessary than heightened militaristic visibility, saying "we need an army of health professionals" to combat COVID-19.
"We also need to ensure that every health worker is compensated justly and has access to personal protective equipment," Hontiveros added.
"We need to remind the government to treat the COVID-19 crisis as a health crisis...the numbers are alarming and clearly, we are not winning. We cannot mass arrest our way out of this health problem."

The opposition senator made the statement after the country has registered more than 50,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases.
A University of the Philippines (UP) researcher made public his study that COVID-19 cases in the country could breach 100,000 by the end of August.
