Loren Legarda wants ex-DOH secretaries to come together for COVID-19 fight


Is this a Jedi Council waiting to happen?

Former Senator now Antique Rep. Loren Legarda had a trailblazing idea for the country’s response to COVID-19. The brightest minds should be out helping Secretary Francisco Duque III grapple with the pandemic, and it should be his predecessors.

“DOH must create a ‘war council’ of former health secretaries, infectious disease specialists, pulmonologists, so Sec. Duque may be guided on best way forward. Dr. Raul Destura and his team must receive full support for his test kits to be dispatched, used now,” the politiko said.

The all-star squad should be able to recommend sound policies as they know the demands of being in Duque’s position.
