Urges officials to work together to overcome challenges
Amid challenges in the procurement of COVID-19 vaccines, Senator and chair of the Senate Committee on Health Christopher “Bong” Go urged public officials to refrain from finger-pointing and, instead, work together to implement a whole-of-nation approach to overcome the crisis and help Filipinos recover more quickly. He also earnestly asked fellow public servants to remain united and focused on dealing with the true enemy which is the COVID-19 pandemic.
As he called on the public to cooperate with the government, Go also asked Secretary of Health Francisco Duque III to exercise accountability by explaining his actions with regard to the accusations thrown at him.
To boost public confidence and awareness on the COVID-19 vaccine roadmap, Go earlier urged the national government to conduct a massive information campaign to educate the public on the ongoing process that government is taking to secure safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines for Filipinos.
