Mayors Vico Sotto and Rex Gatchalian have grown so frustrated about the Department of Health’s lackluster response to COVID-19 that they felt the local governments had to bear the heavier burden instead.

Gatchalian aired out his frustration in an ANC interview, saying the DOH was slow to move on a crisis as huge as the coronavirus.

“Hindi ba dapat bago mag-ECQ, nung may lull tayo nung February, nilabas na yung rules na yun para naka-preposition yung kits sa mga LGUs? Weren’t they supposed to it ng February pa lang?,” Gatchalian said.

Sotto followed through on Twitter, saying national government made it harder for mayors and officials on the ground to respond.

“Dagdag pa rito ang mga maliliit na detalye [na malaking abala], katulad ng pagbigay sa mga barangay ng listahan na alphabetical order– by FIRST NAME.. at WALANG ADDRESS,” he added.
