If President Rodrigo Duterte is indeed looking for a replacement for Health Secretary Francisco Duque III, there are more than 170,000 "candidates," Sen. Panfilo Lacson said Monday.
Not to criticize for the sake of criticizing, but to stop the irregularities.
Members of the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases should report to President Rodrigo Duterte their observations of irregular practices by the Department of Health in fighting the COVID-19 threat.
No thanks to its lack of efficiency and coordination, the Department of Health is now at the epicenter of problems involving the government's response against COVID-19, Sen. Panfilo Lacson said Saturday.
Amid the recently exposed pattern of overpricing in the Department of Health, the coronavirus disease has indeed mutated into something way worse in the Philippines: the "corruptionvirus," Sen. Panfilo Lacson said Saturday.
The Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth) has managed to bring down its costs in fighting COVID-19. Can the Department of Health do the same?
Not once, but twice! This was how Sen. Panfilo Lacson described the House of Representatives' "surprising" moves in handling the franchise of broadcast giant ABS-CBN.
Sen. Panfilo Lacson is not surprised with President Rodrigo Duterte's decision to retain P/Maj. Gen. Debold Sinas as head of the Metro Manila police, amid the controversy involving a violation of the enhanced community quarantine on his…
The height of callousness and greed. This was how Sen. Panfilo Lacson described on Thursday the pattern of overpricing in the Department of Health's purchase of medical equipment to address the COVID-19 threat.
Was Health Secretary Francisco Duque III's claim that we are now facing the second wave of the COVID-19 threat merely a way to pat himself on the back?
Does the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases have a national action plan against the COVID-19 threat?
A nucleic acid extractor acquired by the private sector cost P1.75 million, but one acquired by the Department of Health cost more than double that at P4 million.
With very strong reservations. This was how Sen. Panfilo Lacson voted on Monday for the passage of a proposed measure seeking harsher punishment against perjury and false testimonies.
Sen. Panfilo Lacson is open to a possible supplemental budget for the government's efforts against COVID-19, to allow at least five million more families to receive amelioration funds.
Some 18 million families targeted as beneficiaries of social amelioration funds due to the COVID-19 threat should still get the second tranche even if the community quarantines in their areas had been eased, Sen. Panfilo Lacson said Sunday.…
Amelioration should not be delayed, Ping stresses. Huwag gutumin ang mahirap dahil sa kapabayaan ni…
Why let poor families affected by the COVID-triggered lockdowns go hungry due to the incompetence of some local officials like mayors and barangay chairmen?
The Department of Health will have much explaining to do regarding the price of personal protective equipment it has acquired for frontliners against COVID-19.
The Philippines may have lost a golden opportunity to attract investments from US and European firms that are relocating from China amid the COVID-19 crisis, Sen. Panfilo Lacson said Sunday.
Metro Manila police chief P/Maj. Gen. Debold Sinas should get the punishment he deserves for the violation of lockdown guidelines during his mañanita last weekend, Sen. Panfilo Lacson said Friday.
Compassion, but not absolution.
Sen. Panfilo Lacson, who headed the PNP from 1999 to 2001, noted the irony where NCRPO chief Maj. Gen. Debold Sinas was among those tasked to enforce the enhanced community quarantine in Metro Manila.
Amid the savage "birthday bashing" he got for his moment of "indiscretion," it cannot be denied Metro Manila police chief P/Maj. Gen. Debold Sinas has also done his share to help keep the metropolis safe from the COVID-19 threat.
