‘Paglobo ng COVID-19 [sic] case mga probinsya, sinisi ng IATF sa DILG; Balik Probinsya Program, walang koordinasyon’
DILG Regional Office 6 through its Regional Director is the Chairperson of the IATF. Although the Chairperson, DILG 6 cannot act solely on matters presented to the IATF. All actions and decisions are collectively made.
National Government Agencies, including local government units (LGUs), take part in this national endeavor. Each has a role to fulfill.
Like any activity in a national scale and with the complexities of COVID -19, there has to be bumps along the road. We have an unfamiliar and unseen enemy. Yet, all the men and women in the government are working tirelessly and risking their own safety to combat the virus while continue serving the people.
In these trying times, we all need a shoulder to lean on, a voice that could uplift our spirits, information to properly guide us out of this pandemic, and the cooperation of everyone.
The interview with Atty. Roy Villa as the spokesperson of the RIATF may have been taken out of context, when he referred to the DILG’s role in coordinating the arrivals of the Locally-Stranded Individuals (LSIs) in the region.
