Gwen Garcia takes a swipe at know-it-all COVID experts
Gwendolyn Garcia wants to shut people up for criticizing how Cebu is handling the COVID-19 crisis.
The governor shared a post from a netizen who wanted the supposed pandemic experts to stop questioning how the province is dealing with the local outbreak, after Cebu was recently tagged as an area of concern with rising coronavirus infections nearly a year into lockdowns.
Garcia labeled the notes “to the self-anointed COVID demigods,” as she repeatedly stressed that economic reopening is needed now more than ever to save more people from hunger, poverty, and death.
“What moral ascendancy do they have over us when they themselves can freely move around while the lesser mortals in us cannot? Who gave them the right to live conveniently amid this pandemic while the greater majority wallow in poverty?,” the post read.
