The Department of Health (DoH) has apologized over the public outcry on its Php500 daily allowance for health workers who are in the forefront of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. Health Undersecretary Ma. Rosario Vergeire said that they are doing something to adjust the compensation of health volunteers who are risking their lives to take care of their patients.
On their official Facebook page, DoH issued the following statements:
- President Rodrigo Duterte celebrates 75th birthday with a simple rice, soup and fish meal
- Pres. Rodrigo Duterte goes on home quarantine until April 4, 2020
- RITM apologizes to Cong. Eric Yap for erroneous COVID-19 result
“Announcement: DOH apologizes to the public on the Health Care Warriors drive, thanks volunteers for signing up (March 29, 2020 2:00pm).”
