“Isa po tayo sa pinakamababa. Kung ihahambing po natin ang mayayamang bansa ay di hamak na malayong-malayo po ang ating ranggo kung titingnan po natin na ayan po malinaw naman po sa mga listahan sa COVID world tracker ay isa po tayo sa may mababa na rate of infection,”

Duque said in press briefing led by President Rodrigo Duterte.(We have one of the lowest cases of infection. If we are to compare ourselves to richer countries in the COVID world tracker, we’re among those with the lowest rates of infection.)As of Wednesday, the Philippines has reported 3,870 confirmed cases of coronavirus, with 182 deaths and 96 recoveries.

According to Duque, the Philippines’ ratio of coronavirus infection to population is only two per every one million population.He said that this was due to the two preventive measures implemented by the government such as the absolute travel ban to China – the ground zero for the coronavirus pandemic – and the enhanced community quarantine or lockdown of the entire Luzon region.

guingonabart Severe to critical and all the 'vip's inbetween Same here in Europe! Mas malala pa dito! Kulang masyado face mask and testing! Ang tanga tanga mo Mr DUQUE !!! Duque u are a big disgrace to d department. Pls disappear and give it to someone who can run d department better Kung ano sabihin ni duterte yun din ang sa sabihin. Kung anong I pagawa yun lng din ang gagawin pareho ni Bato

Mas inuna pa kasing sumipsip sa boss kesa maglahad ng tunay na nangyayari. Kahit alam nilang misleading, sinabi pa rin para lang may masabing accomplishments. Ang hanap ng tao ay di ung sobrang hanep na nagagawa kc alam naman nating hirap tayo, kundi yung wastong plano lang. Yung bilang ng nag positive sa limited test niyo yun ba ang figure na basehan ng infected cases sa buong bansa? Malamang low corona virus infection nga

SecDuque is as inept as his president...kahit noon pa Limited Philippines WuhanVirus testing just means that any number of cases that DOH releases, add a couple of zeroes to it Once they're critical does it really matter? How about stopping the Asymptomatic spreaders? Be proactive not just reactive.

We should never forget that early in 2020 the Department of Health head was more concerned about foreign policy than the safety of the Filipino people. eto tayo eto ang low eto ang high Well yeah! Coz you guys have limited testing kits available! This DUQUE is a JOKE!! Try compare PH to ASEAN countries para makita mu na tayo ang kulelat at napakaraming deaths! I can’t believe the president don’t see DUQUE is INCOMPETENT to his position! 😡😡 DuqueResign

Jimparedes I don’t think Pinoy understand the advantages of quarantine,Dahil limited ang testing stocks kaya nila ginagawa yun now kng hangang april 30 sa tingin mo ok ka naman then no need to get testing,sa US nga hospiTal,urgentcare denied nila yung ng rerequest pag makita naman na ok ka. Parang Burundi lang, when asked why there is no case of the virus there, their answer ua simple, because, we have no testing kits here....😁😂😁

Lies ibig sabihin ba nyan walang pondo and kulang ang donation? awayin ba naman mga kaalyadong bansa yan napapala umasa na lang sa china 😂 wala na ang emergency funds i hope they will not bloat the numbers just to show improvement Kya maba2 n sinasabi n duque kupal kc nd kau ngmass testing ngaun plang unti2 dumadami testing kya lu2bo p ian

There'l always b a Plethora of Blaming&Wiser ideas but obviusly HINDSIGHT is always 20/20 VISION but it's thos who Throw the Hard Solutions & INSPIRE,who are History's Great:Jose Rizal'Mi Ultimo Adios.' Churchill,'this was their FINEST HOUR.'Gen Douglas MacArthur,'I shall Return' Well, Duque, you are saying that we are in league with some African countries that have NO coronavirus infection - because they have NO testing.

Why doesn't DOH expedite approvals of the 30+ COVID-19 labs? No need for WHO to certify, other countries don't so why can't PH vet them on their own? The PH is so beholden to WHO which is a China lapdog so the IATF needs to compel DOH to get going. MaamSyj Dukie: we have zero infections for 3 days. And we found out that it took weeks to see results. I cnt reconcile that statement anymore.

Nakupu!! Bakit ka magsasabi ng konti lang ang cases ng Pinas eh hindi natin pa naumpisahan mag mass testing. Niloloko mo ba kami? Lokohan na lang ba? Sabi meron pera, ngayon wala naman pala. Lokohan na talaga! You have blood on your hands. Barabara din itong puque ng na ito!!! Sila sila lng nagbobolahan

Dapat siyang magising sa katotohanan! Maraming namamatay na hindi mailagay sa statistics dahil hindi naitetest! Right now this government is playing with terms! We need concrete steps to address this problems otherwise we r in for a marathon! Me while listening to duque Hope you get sued soon. Lowest testing in Southeast Asia

His brain is badly infected by stupid virus We will see the real numbers by April 14. The start of the mass testing nationwide. What? The UP did some and China donated some etc. Wtf are talking about? You are trying to hide the real numbers. Stop lying. We need real numbers to address this issue. There is no cure yet.

Jimparedes Low infection because of low detection due to low testing. Very basic naman po Mr Duque, aba baka mas magaling pa ko sau na DOH Secretary. COVID19PH duque is hallucinating But we’re starting on April 14, right? He’s a quack Stupid That means there’s more people infected that we all don’t know. 👎

this guy is just faking it. Dra Vergeire’s face says otherwise I thought they gonna start mass testing pui’s starting April 14. Problems with data transparency, misleading figures, unclear projections and without mass testing yet = PH having a low rate of infection We're still far from over. DuqueResign dapat matikas ang ipalit sa namumuno ng DOH hindi yung malambot na kagaya mo. dapat yung laging advance magisip hindi yung tutulog tulog sa pansitan.

Yet the incompetent Duque has the audacity to brag the country's 'low infection rate' and praise the 'positive' effects of Duterte's late travel ban. Duque is far worse than COVID-19. 275Billon? FINALLY!!! Practically an admission that the daily number do not reflect reality!!! Which is scary!!! Decisions are made based on those numbers! Gawd some may have recovered by the time they get tested, some dead. What an idiot this guy is!!! Time for DuqueResign !!!

mariaressa atomaraullo CNN camanpour can we review sec. Duque’s leadership in DoH? I think he’s done badly for the country. Lies and Incompetence took the lives of many.. Hahaha Ganda pic NI doque dyan ha Figures of those tests, please, DOHgovph. On a daily basis & nationwide in scope, how many exactly, where & when? How would we know the truth if you just keep on saying that it has increased but no figures? More transparency in this regard, please, for statistical purposes. TY.

This statement coming from a lying DOH secretary is like poison to us. Better let the undersecretary do all the talking. Stappit! DuqueResign what are you waiting po? Mass testing should be high priority. There is a clear link between mass testing and containing the outbreak.
