Obviously dejected at negative reactions over Covid-19 measures, Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte snapped back at people who find fault at the city government’s efforts to fight the coronavirus disease, saying all measures are for the good of Dabawenyos.
“Kung daghan ang mga nasakit ug mamatay, mag-reklamo tanan. Kung buhatan ug pamaagi para ma-control ang masakit ug mamatay, mag-reklamo pud tanan. So asa ninyo gusto ibutang ang inyohang gobyerno? (If many people get sick and die, everybody complains. If we take steps to prevent people from getting sick and die, everybody complains. So where do you place your government?),” Mayor Sara said in a press release from the City Information Office.
Mayor Sara stressed that the government is working overtime doing all means to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
“Wala mi Sunday kagahapon because gi-meetingan na siya (clustering) kagahapon. So samtang kamo naa mo’y Sunday kagahapon ang gobyerno kagahapon naghuna-huna paunsa dili mo masakit tanan ug ‘di mo mangamatay tanan (We do not have a Sunday break because we met yesterday to discuss it (clustering). While you were having your Sunday break, the government worked for you not getting sick and do not die),” she added.
Since the city government declared different community quarantine levels since March, several lockdown measures have been imposed to slow the coronavirus outbreak in the city.
