'Huwag tayong mamatay sa ibang rason, nasagasaan ka lang at wala ka namang ginawa. It would be an honor to die for your country, I assure you,' Duterte says

President Duterte says the deaths could have been prevented if they are fully covered by protective gear. Several public and private hospitals and its medical frontliners have resorted to appealing to the public to donate personal protective equipment (PPE).

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, March 31)— President Rodrigo Duterte said healthcare workers risking their lives in the batttle against COVID-19 should consider themselves"lucky" that they are able to offer their lives for the country."May mga doktor na, mga nurses, attendants, namatay. Sila ‘yung nasawi ang buhay para lang makatulong sa kapwa. Napakaswerte nila. Namatay sila para sa bayan. Iyon ang dapat ang rason na bakit tayo mamatay," Duterte said in his late night address to the public on Monday.

He added,"Huwag tayong mamatay sa ibang rason, nasagasaan ka lang at wala ka namang ginawa. It would be an honor to die for your country, I assure you."[Translation: Doctors, nurses, attendants have died. They died while helping their countrymen. They are lucky to die for their country. That should be why people die, not because of some accident. It would be an honor to die for your country, I assure you.]

At least 12 doctors in the frontline have died after being exposed to the novel coronavirus, while dozens are under quarantine because they may have been exposed to the highly-contagious viral disease."Somehow let the thought comfort you that I really worry about you, that I worry that you will not be able to reach an old age with your children and grandchildren," Duterte said.

The President said the deaths could have been prevented if they are fully covered by protective gear."Ang pilosopiya ko ho ganito, sa nagtatrabaho, kung protected ka lang, eh make yourself fully covered, protected para walang madisgrasya," he said.

The Private Hospitals Association of the Philippines Inc. (PHAPI) said health care workers are gravely exposed to the virus due to the shortage of protective gear. Several public and private hospitals and its medical frontliners have resorted to appealing to the public to donate personal protective equipment (PPE).

Nobody has anticipated this crisis. That's understandable. But, there were opportunities for the government to act upon it and get ready. There is something that the definitely can do. But, things are running so slow. There is a way to make things work fast. They know that. Incompetent president ....a good leader is a responsible leader! ..and he is not. 🤦🏼‍♂️👊🏾

Ungas! Sayo na yang honor. Gawin ka pa naming valedictorian. Hindi nakakain yang honor. Ilang pamilya pa ang mawawalan? Ilang anak pa ang mauulila sa ama o ina dahil sa maling idea mo sa pagiging bayani? Pauwiin mo ng BUHAY ang mga doktor, hindi abo sa garapon! Wala kang kwenta! This guy missed the point by a solar system! Hindi sana sila patay king hindi kayo tatanga-tanga nung January! May one with Wuhan, racist kami, sampalin ko yang veerus, drink vitamins at kung ano pang katarantaduhan kayon nalalaman 3 months ago! Hanggang ngayon hindi kayo handa!

Nobody want to die why you’re not giving complete PPE? Shamed on you Tang naman na president. Ikaw lang ang nag diwang na may mga namatay. You should protect the lives of your people. Kung kumilos lang sana kayo ng mas maaga at maayos Please die for this country, Duterte. Ows! Bakit hindi ka nag jetski sa West Philippine Sea?

They perished because they did not receive the support they needed from the government. Gago ikaw dapat ma matay They didn't have to die in the first place if your government had its shit together before all of this blew up. THIS IS ON YOU, DUTERTE. Blame no one but yourself. Mamatay na sana lahat ng corrupt sa Philippines.

sabihin niya yan sa pamilya ng mga namatayang frontliners. Sino siya para sabihin yan? Walang kwentang presidente. Parang subject lecture lang sa obligation and contracts sa commerce nung college potek. Jusme, may mga ganyan pa palang mga nasagasaan etc. Tell that to the innocents that died in your tokhang program

Madali naman makilala who will disagree with the statement of DU30. Ayos lang daw maubos ang mga healthcare workers. Para sa bayan naman daw ang dahilan kung sakaling mamamatay sila sa covid19. sabihin mo yan sa family nila na maiiwan if mamatay sila, tyak sasabihin nila ' putang ina mo ' 'nasagasaan ka lang at wala ka namang ginawa' so those people who died from hit & run or car accident died for nothing. ala lang namatay lang ganun? d ba lahat ng buhay tao, halaman, hayop deserves to live? ok lang mamatay kasi pra sa bayan? feel sad for FrontLinersPH

Sige nga pakamatay ka para sa bansang to :) Stop romanticizing the death of our frontliners. That’s a tragedy, not a heroism. Hindi ko lang maiduktong kung saan nanggagaling si duterte sa sinabi nya. Parang ginupit-gupit mula sa iba-ibang script? 'Somehow let the thought comfort you that I really worry about you, that I worry that you will not be able to reach an old age with your children and grandchildren,' Duterte said. Lol. NO.

When you die you'll go hell ..that's for sure..unless you repent and turn away frm ur sin and confess that Jesus is Lord u'll be save frm eternal damnation...you have the power to say anthing now but when you face the Lord Almighty u'll be down on ur knees OnlyGodisAlminghty Dutete mas honor s bansa kung ikw deadbol wag yun mga doctor at nurses tumutulong s may coronavirus ikw kc wala silbi

Ikaw ang papatay sa aming lahat. 🦔 ulol mo hindi nila ginusto na mamatay para sa bayan gago! wala silang choice! nilagay mo sila sa peligro! dahil kapabayaan mo! for sure marami pa silang pangarap sa buhay na nasayang dahil sa kagagohan ng administrasyon mo.. sinong pinagloloko mo? puro ka wento gago!

So you'll die for the salvation of the Philippines? Nanadyan na tayu. wag masyadong emosyonal! Sa medicine and nursing, don't be sympathetic be empathetic! Para hindi ka mahila ng emosyon mo! Late and didn't do a presentation where the special power has reached! reportngbayan Do the honor. Die for your country then.

Why don't you go first then. Not that I am wishing for it. lagi na lang 'patay' nasa utak netong matandang to NAGPAPAHIWATIG NA BA 😳 EARTH IS HEALING NA TALAGA chz💅🏼 You Fool. This emergency happened because 1. Your friend China screwed everybody 2. Instead of lock-in the country you let the Chinese tourists in 3. Politicians should stop stealing the country’s money and use that to prepare for emergency situations like hmm pandemics.

Huwad kayo! facepalm. HCWs died unarmed, underprepared and overpowered by an invisible enemy and you say it would be an honor to die? wtf? mag silabasan nlg kaya tayo para magkaroon ng herd immunity total honorable naman mamatay diba sa kagagawan nyo? gigil na tala ako. 😡 Did he follow the script? Or wing it again? Either way...🤮

Mauna ka!! Kadiri ka 🤮🤮🤮 Then you should try it sometime I like d toad faced so called leader surmises, no honor in dying by getting ran over by a vehicle on a haphazard constructed roads? But rather, die with great honor as a health care worker, using their own homegrown non government supplied parts 4 PPE? Be proud 4 d asshat Ddirty!

Parang tambay sa kanto! Tapos bilib na bilib naman ang mga bobong dds! Damn. I feel sorry for those people na nasagasaan lang ng walang nagawa. Invalid daw pagkamatay nyo. Then go to the frontline... hindi yung natutulog k lang with ur 'emergency powers'... This fucking LUNATICpresident loves death. Mga nasagasaan:

Ikaw na mamatay. Gago! You are obsessed with the idea of death. If you want it so badly for yourself, ‘wag ka mandamay ng iba. Para sa bayan nga, pero paano ang mga pamilya na naiwan nila? If only you people are more concerned with SAVING LIVES than actually ENDING IT, we wouldn’t be in this situation.

👎👎👎👎👎👎 Bakit si kamatayan ba u? Say that to the families they’ve left behind... those who lost a spouse, a parent, a child, a sibling, a friend... those who never had a chance to say goodbye... when they could have lived if the government was proactive and cared more for it’s people 💔 Mamatay Ka para sa bayan so vp Leni can be incharge lenirobredo

Hindi pa ba tayo magagalit nyan? NO. IT IS NOT RIGHT THAT HEALTHCARE WORKERS SHOULD DIE IN THE FIRST PLACE. PROTECT THEM SO THEY WONT DIE. SIMPLE LOGIC. As if Rody Duterte is willing to die from the Chinese virus. Mr. President, how about providing our health workers and us citizens a well-thought plan. You have now the emergency power, so why is it taking so long before you direct the cabinet secretaries to download the funds and buy the supplies needed. No more excuses, pls.

When is it his turn to die for his country then? Utilize your community. Not only your frontliners. Wala pong problema mamatay para sa bansa, pero kailangan namin ng model, sabi nga leaders first... So anong plano mo ginoo? DuterteVirus duterteduwag DuterteStandardTime traitor Take leadership example from VicoSotto & IskoMoreno & lenirobredo

Parang sinabi rin ng utak biyang hinayupak na lider eh, asahan nyong doktor at narses na mama-matay kayo. Gaguhan lang eh. Utak Mayor Davao lang ginagawa sa Pilipinas! Hoy utak ampaw tae! Pilipinas pinamumunohan mo, hindi Davao! Casualty of war not because of the enemy (virus).. 🤮🤮🤮 Teka-- akala ko ba it is Duterte who would like to die for his country-- bat Patience's doctors and nurses sinama na nya.

In this time we need words of hope and encouragement from a strong leader. Namputsa parang mind conditioning ginagawa mo na ok lang kami matigok. Hoy mauna kayo at lahat ng masamang budhi. Do it then. The Smiths talaga ang peg nya His audience should be DDS only that can decipher what comes ou from his mouth P.I.

Lead by example! ✌ Dapat mayor ang mauna Not dying is alot better...
