Instead of a clear direction and plan on how to protect the people, the Duterte regime is stuck on its militarist approach, no thanks to the generals that dominate the fight against the virus. Pres. Duterte issued a shoot to kill order against quarantine violators while protecting the VIPs of the ruling clique. He acted like a burdened leader looking for funds even as the government’s debt reached more than Php 9 trillion, acquired at least Php 6.5 billions of donations from private entities. He and his clique now keep a COVID war chest of at least Php 1 trillion.
Fully exposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, the crumbling Duterte regime kept blaming the people, especially the poor, to cover up its criminal negligence and its accountability in dealing with the health and economic crisis. Sooner, the Philippines may become Southeast Asia’s Covid-19 hotspot even as the economy plunged in recession, the worst in eight decades—more than enough reason why the people should OUST DUTERTE, NOW!
