Guv Miraflores thanks ex-DOH Sec. Dayrit for citing Aklan’s good COVID response


It was an honor but definitely expected as far as Governor Joeben Miraflores is concerned.

Former Health Secretary Manuel Dayrit named Aklan as among the local government units in the country with the most effective anti-COVID-19 measures, which allowed the province to stay a low-risk area and ready to revive local tourism.

For the politiko, it was a moment of pride that’s well-deserved. “It is only a matter of time before our good coordination and preparation of our work will result in immediate recognition,” he said in a post in the vernacular, adding that officials will continue to do the right thing in enforcing health standards.
