Malacañang said the Bloomberg study showing that the Philippines ranked 46th out of 53 countries in terms of coronavirus (Covid-19) resilience is “inaccurate.”

The Philippine government has managed the health crisis “very well,” according to Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque.

“Hindi ko pa po nakikita iyang pag-aaral na iyan. Hayaan po ninyo titingnan ko iyong pag-aaral na iyan. Pero tingin ko, parang hindi po accurate iyan sa actual na nangyari,” Roque said in a televised briefing Thursday.

“Nakikita naman po ninyo, bagama’t number 22 na tayo sa buong mundo ay hindi naman po tayo nasa absolute top in terms of numbers. At bukod pa po diyan ay maliit po ang ating mortality rate at maliit din po iyong mga nagkakasakit ng malala at ng kritikal.

“Siguro po hayaan ninyong pag-aralan ko iyong report na iyan nang tayo ay makasagot. Pero pinaninindigan po natin that we have managed Covid-19 very well in this country,” he added.

As of November 26, the Philippines has recorded 424,297 confirmed Covid-19 cases, of which 387,266 have recovered while 8,242 have died.
