MANILA – Sharon Cuneta took a swipe at Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque after he defended the government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic by claiming that “it is working.”
Through her social media platforms, Cuneta questioned Roque’s view especially since COVID-19 cases continue to rise every day
“Sir, WHAT is WORKING?! We see the numbers rise everyday. The hospitals are overflowing with COVID-19 patients like never before. We still don’t have enough Test Kits,” she wrote.
According to Cuneta, the government has not been managing this health crisis effectively.
“Surely the health of all Filipinos amidst this Global Pandemic should have taken priority over things like the Anti-Terrorism Bill, the hearings and eventual denial of the franchise renewal of ABS-CBN, and the idea of renaming NAIA,” she said.
“Our attention can no longer be diverted from COVID-19 by ANYTHING else our leaders may think up next,” she added.
To end her statement, Cuneta pleaded to the government and Roque to save the Filipino people first and to tell the truth.
