Presidential spokesman Salvador Panelo has urged the public to give their suggestions on how the government can improve their COVID-19 response.
As the country continues its efforts against the spread of coronavirus, Panelo said cooperation should be very much needed. He said that instead of hurling criticisms, it is best the public air their suggestions.
Panelo was quoted by Inquirer saying, “Sana at this time of our crisis, yun pong mga pagpuna natin sa pamahalaan e ‘wag na muna tayong maging masyadong mainit doon. Kumbaga, nakaraan na yon at ginagawan na ng paraan.”
“Siguro mas maganda magbigay po tayo ng mungkahi na lang. Yung nakita natin na hindi maganda na hindi nagawa, ipasa po agad natin,” he suggested.
The spokesperson said that they do listen to suggestions and noted that all proposals are being recommended to the President and the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging Infectious Disease.
“Ang atin pong pakiusap sa mga kababayan natin, lahat po ng problema na nakita po ninyo sa inyong lugar, ipaalam niyo lang po sa amin. Kahit sinong Cabinet member na kaibigan niyo o lokal na opisyal, yan po ay makakarating sa amin at atin pong tinutugunan yan,” Panelo said.
Panelo added that for us to contribute to the betterment of the situation, we should give recommendations and air our ideas to help solve the problems.
“Yun pong mga kritisismo, kung ano man po ang i-criticize natin, gawin na po nating mungkahi. Para lahat po tayo ay makakatulong sa isa’t isa,” he added.
