Actor and Ormoc City Mayor Richard Gomez wrote an open letter for President Rodrigo Duterte to raise a concern regarding the “Hatid Tulong” program.
KAMI learned that the Kapamilya actor was alarmed by the volume of locally stranded individuals (LSIs) gathered at the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex, as well as the lack of social distancing.
In a Facebook post, Mayor Gomez asked the President about the person in charge of the said program.
“Mr. President, this is the situation right now at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum for the Hatid Tulong program. Just in case no one is showing the real pictures,” he said.
“Who is your person in charge of this program? I am sorry but in my opinion, that person doesn’t know what he is doing in organizing something as big as this,” he added.
He also pointed out that there was no social distancing being observed at the location despite the number of Filipinos staying there.
“He cannot tell the people to be in an orderly manner. No social distancing for more than 2 days!” he shared.
“How many of them will be infected with Covid as they head home to their provinces this week because of this arrangement!?” he continued.
The Ormoc Mayor called for the termination of the person in charge of his/her “insensitivity” amid the OCVID-19 pandemic.
“Whoever that person heading this program should be fired for insensitivity and no regard for public health!” he wrote.
