Netizens criticize Duterte’s midnight address, support health workers’ plea


MANILA — Netizens are angry after hearing President Rodrigo Duterte rant against health workers during his midnight address on August 2, after health workers demanded for a more concrete plan in the country’s response with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Duterte even called out health workers who are criticizing the government’s plans and dared them to “stage a revolution” against him, adding it would give him the free ticket to conduct a ‘counterrevolution.’

They are also against the administration’s decision to put certain areas in modified enhanced community quarantine without first establishing any concrete plan to follow the two-week quarantine.

Celebrities have also shown their contempt towards Duterte’s way of addressing the issue, and showed support towards our frontliners who have been fighting the battle since day one.
