Statement of Senator Joel Villanueva on PS Resolution No. 362 calling for the resignation of Health Secretary Duque

We cannot allow our response to the COVID-19 pandemic to continue like this. Our efforts on contact tracing and mass testing came in late, while we called our health workers to arms without the proper equipment to protect themselves. Our public health leader should empower local governments, and take strategic actions that would make our response more efficient. We expect our public health leader to show everyone he has the necessary qualities to lead the response effectively because our own people's lives are at stake here. Every decision matters. We cannot afford to be indecisive at this point.
