President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday condemned the discrimination against health workers who are at the frontlines in the fight against the coronavirus.

Duterte assured the frontliners that their safety is his utmost concern.

“Ito namang isa, itong mga trabahante, mga doktor, mga nurse, health workers, attendants and all, eh hindi makauwi ng bahay, tinatapunan ninyo ng kung ano-anong mga chemicals na nakakasira ng katawan. Mas una silang mamatay kay ‘yung sa pasyente doon sa Covid,” he lamented during his publci address.

The Chief Executive ordered increased police presence to address the safety concerns of frontline health workers.

“Yung mga tao na gumagawa ng ganun, I am ordering the police to go around. Huwag kayong mag-istambay diyan sa istasyon. Maglakad kayo, tandem, at maghanap kayo ng mga taong bastos. At kung mahuli mo, kung ano ‘yung binubuhos niya doon sa health worker o sa doktor, ibuhos mo rin sa kanya para tabla. Eh bakit? Ikaw lang ba ang marunong? ‘Di tikman mo rin ‘yung ginagawa mo and see if it would make you happy,” said Duterte.

“Ulitin ko: Do not. ‘Yung mga doktor, p***** i** pagpunta mo doon sa ospital, ‘yon ‘yung doctor na binuhusan mo, ‘yon ‘yung maggagamot sa iyo sa loob ng hospital. Yung mga frontliners, huwag kayong mag-alala. I will support and defend you,” he concluded.
