Pangasinan 4th District Representative Christopher de Venecia on July 28 said President Rodrigo Duterte failed to give a concrete roadmap to address the coronavirus disease (COVID19) pandemic during his State of the Nation Address (SONA).
The Pangasinan politiko said many Filipinos were expecting Duterte to provide a sound COVID19 strategy.
“Siguro nakulangan lang tayo ng klarong istratehiya o strategic roadmap para sa bansa paukol sa kung paano ba talaga masusugpo ang COVID19,” De Venecia said.
De Venecia said a sound strategy was needed because of the continued increase in COVID19 cases in the country.
“May iilang nabanggit pero yun siguro yung pinaka-inaasahan ng mamamayan na pinanghihinaan ng loob araw-araw dahil sa patuloy na pagtaas ng mga kaso ng COVID19, ‘di gaya ng iba nating karatig- bansa,” he said.
“Kailangang magkaroon ng 30-day plan ang gobyerno kung paano susugpuin once and for all ang COVID19,” De Venecia added.
