Senator Imee Marcos on July 28 said the Philippines is beset by multiple “viruses.”
The Ilocos Norte politiko made the remark after she said President Rodrigo Duterte’s message to the country was “loud and clear ” in his State of the Nation Address (SONA) speech last July 27.
Duterte failed to mention any plan for the worsening coronavirus disease (COVID19) pandemic in his SONA.
“His government will lead the charge against the multiple viruses that beset our country — COVID19, all manner of corruption, criminal syndicates, and an almighty historic oligarchy,” Marcos said.
The Marcos clan can be considered part of the oligarchy.
