Shame! Politics poisons public health issues – Hilbay
Former Solicitor General Florin Hilbay is disappointed that partisan politics has harmed public health issues and added to the burden of the poor.
The Department of Health earlier announced an outbreak of measles in Metro Manila and some provinces due to the drop in the immunization coverage amid the Dengvaxia scare.
“There is a measles outbreak in metro manila, the DOH has announced lives lost, hospitals are full, & families are suffering. most of the burden will be on the poor,” he tweeted.
“This is what happens when politics poisons public health issues. Shame,” he added.
