Malacañang on Thursday thanked Vice President Leni Robredo for her recommendations on how the government should manage the coronavirus pandemic in the country.

In a virtual presser aired on state-run PTV-4, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said that most of Robredo’s suggestions are already being implemented by the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) on Emerging Infectious Diseases.

“Nagpapasalamat po kami sa mga rekomendasyon ni VP bagamat sa aking sagot po ay sinabi rin po natin na karamihan ng kanyang rekomendasyon ay pinapatupad na ng IATF,” according to Roque.

“Ang mga rekomendasyon po niya ay may kinalaman sa reporting and keeping the public informed, sa budget utilization, sa transportation concerns, sa restarting the economy, edukasyon, at sa composition ng IATF,” he added.

“Nagpapasalamat po kami kay Vice President sa kanyang panahon na ginugol para ipadala ang kanyang mga suhestyon. Bagamat ini-implement na ang halos lahat ng rekomendasyon niya ay importante pa rin po na makipag-communicate pa rin tayo sa pangalawang pangulo ng bansa.”

Roque said they will respond to Robredo’s letter within the week.
