Ruffy Biazon refutes Tito Sotto’s call for new agency vs coronavirus

Ruffy Biazon said creating a new agency just for one disease is too much.

The Muntinlupa congressman refuted Senate President Tito Sotto’s call to make a new “information agency” just to release updates on the novel coronavirus outbreak.

“There’s no need to create a new agency. The Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases (TF-EID) created by EO 168 has that function found in Section 2.e. of the EO. The inter-agency TF-EID only needs to designate the risk communication talking heads,” Biazon said in a tweet.

What do you think about Sotto’s suggestion?
