Baguio City Mayor Benjamin “Benjie” Magalong countered Department of Health (DOH) Secretary Francisco Duque III’s claim that the country is now under the second wave of COVID-19 cases.
The Baguio politiko a short but sassy remark against Duque, which Baguio’s Public Information Office posted on facebook on Wednesday, May 20.
“Second wave? How can that happen when we haven’t flattened the curve yet?” Magalong said.
Duque would later clarify in a House hearing that the country is under the “first major wave of sustained community transmission.”
