Health Sec. Francisco Duque III issues that they are now halting COVID-19 deaths.
Duque responded, after TV host Arnold Clavio shared information about a Metro Manila frontliner who had been banned from killing deadly viruses.
On Duque’s side, it asserted that it was untrue and that they could not order hospitals to conceal the true situation in the victims of COVID-19. He asked Clavio to give him the name of the hospital so they could investigate soon.
“The DOH did NOT and will NEVER issue a directive for hospitals to conceal the number of COVID-19 deaths. Mr. Clavio disclosed to me the hospital allegedly involved in this issue and we will investigate IMMEDIATELY, ”Duque said.
