- Sharon Cuneta fearlessly criticized Malacañang’s statement that the government’s response to COVID-19 pandemic is “working”
- Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said the government effectively spared millions from getting the viral disease
- The veteran actress then posted on Instagram that hospitals are currently overflowing with COVID-19 patients
- She also said that the pandemic should have been given priority instead of the anti-terror law, shutting ABS-CBN down, and renaming the Ninoy Aquino International Airport
Sharon Cuneta fearlessly reacted to Malacañang defending the government’s response to COVID-19 pandemic.
On Friday, July 17, Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque stated that the government's action is “working” because it spared millions from getting the viral disease.
“It’s working. Because if we didn’t take steps, then millions would have fallen sick from COVID-19 like what UP (University of the Philippines) initially predicted. It’s working, because only a small number died from the disease,” he said.
The Megastar then took to Instagram to criticize the spokesperson’s justification.
“Sir, WHAT is WORKING?! We see the numbers rise everyday. The hospitals are overflowing with COVID-19 patients like never before. We still don’t have enough Test Kits. The government, Sir, has NOT been managing this health crisis effectively. Surely the health of all Filipinos amidst this Global Pandemic should have taken priority over things like the Anti-Terrorism Bill, the hearings and eventual denial of the franchise renewal of ABS-CBN, and the idea of renaming NAIA. Now?!!! Our attention can no longer be diverted from COVID-19 by ANYTHING else our leaders may think up next. Please, save our people first! And for crying out loud, since so many people believe in you, please just tell us the TRUTH!”
