VP Leni hindi sang-ayon sa ipinatupad na Community Quarantine ni President Duterte

Vice President Leni Robredo complained about how the government seems to focus too much on maintaining the law and order amid the community quarantine in Metro Manila instead of giving their attention to the health workers treating COVID-19 patients.

In her radio program “Biserbisyong Leni” the Vice President cited that the government should give more of their support to the health workers because the COVID-19 outbreak is a health concern and not a peace and order issue.

“Ngayon kasi, parang nangingibabaw ulit ‘yung public order and safety na dapat sana supportive lang siya sa health concern,” Robredo said.

“Sana hindi grabe ‘yung focus sa military, sa kapulisan kasi ito, health concern ito,” she added.

She also suggested that the government should create another sub-committee in the IATF-EID that will focus on the people affected by the community quarantine.

On her social media post, she also asked her followers to help the health workers by sending donations to them.

The Vice President clarified that they’re not accepting cash donations, that’s why she asked them to deposit the money to their private partner “Kaya Natin! Movement for Good Governance and Ethical Leadership.”

Several groups also criticized the action of the government to deploy soldiers and cops during the community quarantine period.

The community quarantine in Metro Manila came into effect on March 15.

Thousands of Philippine National Police (PNP) and Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) members were deployed in different locations in Metro Manila to ensure that all people that are going inside and outside of Manila are not showing symptoms of COVID-19.

According to the reports, there are 200 checkpoints placed in different entry-points of Metro Manila.

“Sana hindi grabe ‘yung focus sa military, sa kapulisan kasi ito, health concern ito,” boladas ni Robredo.

“Ngayon kasi, parang nangingibabaw ulit yung public order and safety na dapat sana supportive lang siya sa health concern,” dagdag pa ni Robredo.

“It’s just a matter of protecting and defending you from COVID-19. That’s about it. It has nothing to do with the power of the military or the police, nor my power or these guys beside me. It’s just an issue of protecting public interest,” paliwanag ni Pangulong Rodrigo Roa Duterte nitong Huwebes.

“It’s a serious one. It is true, ‘wag ninyong maliitin (do not belittle it). Do not minimize it. But as I said, do not kill yourself with worry because as I said, the government is doing everything to make it at least controllable,” ayon pa kay Pangulong Duterte.

“Avoid trouble with the law, avoid trouble with anybody. Just follow. Better just stay home and study. Kung ayaw niyong sundin , you stick with your cellphone, ang ga-graduate niyan yung cellphone niyo, hindi ikaw,” paliwanag ng President.
