Stop politicizing the latest health emergency.

Overseas Workers Welfare Administration deputy administrator Mocha Uson issued the appeal after frowning on Senator Francis Pangilinan’s latest rebuke of the government’s response to the coronavirus that hit the country.

“Sana ay magtulungan nalang kesa sa pinupulitika pa ang mga ganitong bagay,” Uson tweeted.

Pangilinan earlier criticized the Duterte administration for not immediately banning the entry of visitors from China where the virus broke out. He said if the government thinks the people are safe without such travel ban on China, these foreign travelers should go straight to Malacañang upon arrival in the country.

A day after the country confirmed its first coronavirus case, President Duterte finally ordered authorities to stop the entry of visitors from Hubei, China.

World health authorities have declared the new coronavirus as a global health emergency.
