Solicitor General Florin Hilbay has urged the government to proceed with the mass testing of Filipinos to curb the further spread of the 2019 coronavirus (COVID-19).
“We want many people tested so we can better fight, prepare, and manage COVID-19,” read his Twitter post on Friday (March 27).
“Without testing, we’re all in the dark,” he lamented.
With testing, Hilbay pointed out that the country would have “an idea of the problem and how government is handling it.”
“Without numbers, government can’t be held responsible,” he stressed.
