PH COVID-19 cases rising due to Duterte’s epic fail strategies - Drilon


Minority Floor Leader Franklin Drilon made a public statement that it’s the refusal of the Duterte administration to change strategies in the fight against the novel coronavirus or COVID-19 is the reason why we are still experiencing a constant increase of infections which has lead us to being ranked number 1 in South East Asia.

In an radio interview the opposition senator said the outright refusal of Malacanang to shift in strategies in fighting COVID-19 has led the country with the highest number of COVID-19 cases in this part of the world.

As of Saturday (August 9), the country has registered 126,885 COVID-19 cases, with 4,226 new infections recorded in a single day.

“Alam mo, dini-dispute na nila na number one na tayo. Sa akin, talagang may problema ang kanilang attitude. Unang-una, hindi mo maiwasan na ang ating bansa ay nangunguna sa contamination. Tayo rin ang malaki ang contraction ng ekonomiya,” he said.

In a statement Malacanang explained that the big leap of COVID-19 cases in the country was the result of the aggressive testing by the government.

The opposition senator from Iloilo said he is alarmed that the positivity rate– or the percentage of people showing COVID-19 infections– has been increasing over the past few months despite the imposition of a lockdown.

“Our effort to prevent the spread of the virus is totally failing, because dumarami nang dumarami. Kung hindi mapigil ang pag-spread, it will continuously result in a lockdown,” he said.

“Puro lang tayo lockdown. Because of the lockdown, our economic situation will worsen – 7.5 million unemployed, 5 million hungry Filipinos at walang pera ang taumbayan,” Drilon added.
