Inilarawan ni Senador Francis Tolentino ang pagtugon ng gobyerno sa COVID-19 pandemic bilang “hit and miss” sa ilang lugar sa bansa.

“Lapses were made, I have to admit,” pahayag ni Tolentino, kaalyado ng administrasyon, sa panayam sa ANC.

“Correct measures were likewise made. So, I would probably describe it as a hit-and-miss in some areas,” dagdag pa nito.

Muli ring nanawagan si Tolentino na buwagin na ang Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases at panahon na para gumamit ng bagong approach sa pagtugon sa pandemya.

“If failure would be described as failure to immediately achieve normalcy, that’s probably beyond their paycheck,” sabi ni Tolentino.

Mas mainam umanong hayaan na lang ang local government units (LGUs), ang Department of Health at Department of Local Interior Government na gawin ang kanilang mandato sa panahon ng pandemya.

“They have to let go of some of their functions and just let the LGUs (local government units), just let the Department of Health, the DILG (Department of the Interior and Local Government) pursue their real mandates,” ani Tolentino.

“They have achieved their usefulness. They have peaked and I think they have done their best,” sambit pa nito.

Sabi ni Tolentino, sa ngayon aniya’y tumatayong parang gobyerno ang IATF na hindi naman umano dapat.

“Right now, it is as if the IATF is the government. But, it’s not supposed to be that way. They were not elected to pursue policies behind closed doors,” ani Tolentino. (Dindo Matining)
