Netizens believe the country has suffered more than the DOH

Rather than feeling bad for him, netizens made memes out of his rant. Some argued that the country was the one getting destroyed and not the DOH.

Health Secretary Francisco Duque III failed to earn the sympathy of the public after he accused the Commission on Audit (COA) of ruining his agency’s reputation; following its publicized audit.

Duque ranted and said that he hasn’t been able to sleep ever since the report was shared with media outlets.

Health Secretary Francisco Duque III is in the news for all the wrong reasons these days after COA reports exposed incompetent handling of funds in a critical time.

In a hearing conducted virtually by the House committee on public accounts on Tuesday, August 17, the secretary responded dramatically to the report, at one point saying he hadn’t been able to sleep, and that the honor of the DOH has been destroyed.

“Mula noong Wednesday (August 11) na lumabas po ito, hindi na po ako nakakatulog. Ang mga kasama kong mga opisyal sa DOH, hindi na rin halos nakakatulog. Bakit, ‘ka ninyo? Sa kahihiyan. We were bloodied and bludgeoned with this issue.

“Winarak na ninyo kami eh. Winarak na ninyo ang dangal ng DOH. Winarak ninyo ang lahat ng mga kasama ko dito.”

The majority of the problems associated with the Philippines’ response to the pandemic– the DOH is associated with it. Senators who allied to the president have even called for Duque’s resignation, but Duterte wouldn’t have it.

Over 17,000 coronavirus cases are recorded recently.

As the number of new cases increases, former government coronavirus task force adviser Dr. Tony Leachon believes the government is wrong to place the country under a more relaxed quarantine status.

“We might be suffering the consequences of that wrong decision, because the fundamental principle in slowing down the virus is basically a tighter quarantine,” Leachon said Friday, August 20.


“Nakakatakot siya na ma-open mo sa MECQ and lose lives and maoverwhelm yung healthcare system. Natatakot ako doon kasi highly transmissible yung virus eh,” he added
