Nancy Binay Says: “Health workers didn’t deserve that kind of lashing”

Senator Nancy Binay does not approve medical frontliners castigated by President Duterte.

NANCY BINAY – President Duterte lashing out at our country’s medical frontliners is something they don’t deserve as per Sen. Nancy Binay.

Medical frontlinerso have aired their pleas to have a timeout and place Metro Manila again under Enhanced Community Quarantine. President Duterte heard them and announced that starting August 4, lasting for two weeks, Metro Manila and other nearby areas were put under MECQ.

Although the president has understood them, he resented them for going public which caused a stir online. He stressed that they could have just asked him or wrote him a letter. He even threatened them, “Kung magrebolusyon kayo, you will give me a free ticket to stage a counter-revolution…”

With this, Senator Nancy Binay reacted and said that our frontliners, the country’s heroes, do not deserve this kind of lashing out from the president. She stressed that they are not the enemy.

The female senator furthered government and the Inter-Agency Task Force for Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) should actually make the most out of this two-week lockdown. They should use this time to correct and improve their ways on how to respond to this pandemic. Moreover, she hopes that the IATF will communicate more with the health workers in order to find better solutions to this problem.

In a report from Inquirer, Binay said, “Moving forward, we have to move on. We have to weeks, a two-week window, wherein we can correct things and hopefully, yung IATF, will constantly be in touch with our health workers, with our doctors para tuloy-tuloy yung dialogue nila on how we can find the solution to this problem.”

In latest update, the country now has 106,330 confirmed COVID-19 cases where 65,821 have recovered and 2,104 have died.
