Cebu City now seems to be the new COVID-19 hotspot of the Philippines. Based on the latest data from DOH, they also have the highest COVID-19 positivity rate in the country as 33 out 100 of tested individuals turn out as positive.
However, as the cases of COVID-19 surpasses 35,000, the country’s debt also continues to pile up.
For this reason, netizens questioned the aerial survey conducted as it seems to be irrelevant and of no use in solving the continuous rise of cases in Cebu City.
They also worried about the money spent on the chopper ride which could have been used to conduct more tests instead.
THIS IS JUST WASTING TIME AND RESOURCES! https://t.co/yfFBvggIrm

As usual, di nag iisip. Covid19 is a medical problem. The virus in itself is micoscopic. What will they gain by having aerial survey? As usual, Nagsayang na naman ng pera tong administrasyon na to. https://t.co/zN9ikXLQop

Galing talaga! Because seeing an invisible virus or controlling public movement is better from a helicopter
