President Rodrigo Duterte again lashed out at Vice President Leni Robredo for undermining the government’s response to coronavirus (Covid-19).
Do not delude the Filipinos into thinking that the government isn’t doing enough to contain the spread of Covid-19, Duterte told Robredo.
“‘Wag ho kayong maniwala diyan. Sus, itong mga dilawan. Lalo na, I hate to mention her name, itong si Leni kung anu-ano ang pinagsasabi,” the chief executive said in a televised public address Monday evening.
“Alam mo Leni kung gusto mo, if you really want to do away with the COVID, i-spray-han natin itong Pilipinas o Manila ng pesticide galing sa eroplano para patay lahat. You cannot exterminate the COVID by itong ano lang ngayon. The only thing that we can do really is wear a face mask and wait for the vaccine,” he added.
The cumulative number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the Philippines now stands at 290,190, data from the Department of Health showed. A total of 230,233 recovered while 4,999 died.
