Gwen Garcia isn’t minding the haters during COVID-19 response


Call her firm and strict, but Gwen Garcia would not let anyone defy her orders during Cebu’s lockdown.

The Cebu governor has been staying on top of the local response and prevention efforts to keep their COVID-19 situation at bay. She could sometimes be blamed as a micro manager, especially when she visited a checkpoint and scolded police and military men guarding the area for being so loose about their policies.

For her, any bashing she gets would have no bearing.

“My political career is the farthest from my mind karon. This is not about votes. This is about saving lives,” Garcia said.
