Health workers and professionals, barangay officials, militant groups, civil society organizations and other individuals gathered today under the Fight COVID-19 People’s Alliance to collectively address the disease in the region.
The alliance called for free testing, treatment, and management of all PUIs, PUMs, and those positive of COVID-19. They also called for the return of 10.6 billion budget cut in DOH and use it to address the COVID-19 epidemic.
They also demanded for the government to enhance its monitoring and control the price of basic needs like food, soaps, alcohol, and other primary commodities, and to implement a medically-sound solution instead of a militarist approach.
The alliance will be conducting massive information dessimination by giving out flyers and house to house campaign. They are also planning to conduct a dialogue with the DOH, LGU officials, and with other government agencies./PT
