Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. is livid with Senator Francis Pangilinan over questioning the government’s supposed preference for imported testing kits over locally produced items.

Locsin unleashed an expletive-laced tweet at Pangilinan, telling him to “shut up” if he has nothing good to say.

He told Pangilinan that he won’t let the people die just to prioritize Filipino-produced testing kits.

“Why? Why? BECAUSE THEY’RE PROVED TO FUCKING WORK THAT’S FUCKING WHY? WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU. SHUT UP IF YOU HAVE NOTHING INTELLIGENT TO SAY. PUTANGINA,” he tweeted.

“I AM NOT GONNA LET OUR PEOPLE DIE IN THE NAME OF FILIPINO FIRST. PUTANGINA,” he said.

Locsin was reacting to a news article “Pangilinan asks DOH: Why favor China, S. Korea COVID-19 test kits over PH-made units?”

Panglinan said insiders from the Department of Health claimed imported testing kits easily passed evaluation, while Filipino-made test kits underwent rigid scrutiny.
