Winnie Castelo doubts DOH’s data on COVID cases


The distrust is real towards the Department of Health that even lawmakers aren’t believing their claims anymore.

Quezon City Councilor Winnie Castelo called out DOH for their data presentation, saying that recent statements made by Secretary Francisco Duque III cast doubt on the capacity and real data being presented to the public.

“‘Di natin matatalo ang COVID-19 kung tayo ay magbobolahan sa datos,” the politiko said.

“Kung nais natin mawaksi ang virus dapat makatotohan ang mga pahayag ni Sec Duque ng DOH. Ang kanyang sinabi na ‘we have flattened the curve’ ay di ayon sa mga datos mismo ng nanggaling sa kangyang tanggapan. Leaders during crisis should for honest and forthright to the public,” Castelo added, taking offense with Duque’s confusing and irrational claim that the country has flattened the curve, pointing out how several hospitals have hit full capacity for COVID-19 wards.
