Health workers want higher budget for COVID response

Health workers and supporters under the Bukluran ng Manggagawang Pilipino (BMP), led by their chairman and presidential candidate Ka Leody De Guzman, troop to the Senate in Pasay City on Thursday to demand a higher budget for the pandemic response. The group demanded for a higher budget for the health sector and more benefits for healthcare workers instead of prioritizing debt servicing.
