Commends President’s response to Covid-19 pandemic
President Rodrigo Duterte deserves credit for the success of the country’s coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) response.
Despite their differences, Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko” Moreno Domagoso praised Duterte for steering the national government’s commendable vaccination drive.
“Pangamba at takot sa impeksyon, pangamba at takot sa hanapbuhay, dahil dito, nagdulot ito ng konting pagkakalito (Apprehension and fear of the infection, worry and fear in employment. These caused a bit confusion) but life must go on. We give credit where credit is due,” he said in an interview during his tour of markets here on Friday.
“Totoo naman kapuri-puri yung ginawa ni Pangulong Duterte at ng IATF (What President Duterte and the Inter-Agency Task Force did is indeed admirable),” he added.
The current administration is not perfect but Domagoso said President Duterte listens to the public and corrects the mistakes of officials.
