Agot Isidro inquires about the PH’s debt of P10.3 trillion

The Philippines has a whopping amount of debt which the government stressed to allocate for fighting against COVID-19. It is to buy vaccines, but the country received vaccines donated by China.

As of March 3, the Duterte administration’s debt has swelled to PHP10.3 trillion in January. The current government pointed the reason is due to the pandemic and is trying to procure vaccines. However, some did not feel that the debt was used for the people.

Kapamilya actress Agot Isidro took to twitter to share her opinion regarding the country’s growing debt. She raised the question about how did the government use the funds. Whether the Filipino people feel if it were put to good use. 

Given the bloated loans, the actress pointed out that campaign materials such as tarpaulins were scattered in some parts of the country. These tarps bear the image of Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, whom her supporters are urging to run for the Presidency.

Pointing at the Philippines’ debt that got revealed–the singer-actress also tweeted a song of the Beatles titled, Help. She tweeted that the ‘song’ is the theme song of the country as it needs help.

She barfed at Duterte’s gesture of thanks to Chinese President, Xi Jinping.

As Duterte’s “BFF” donated vaccines to the country, the Netizens probe on the borrowed money’s whereabouts.

Writer Jerry B. Grácio irked at how the President felt that he did good despite knowing that the country is swimming in a sea of debt and a vaccine donated by his BFF.

@EthelMEspiritu looked for the 2.74 trillion which the Duterte administration borrowed last 2020 to fight the pandemic and its effects on society.

Twitter user Carlos Cuiapo raised a question about donated vaccines from China, where will the money go?

Twitter personality PinoyAkoBlog ridiculed how much the administration borrowed and intended to acquiring vaccines. And yet, the only vaccines available were the ones donated by China.

@eybarnei suggested that there should be a public database for transparency. Since China donated funds for the vaccines, Filipinos have the right to know about the government’s vaccination program.



The country’s debt ballooned to PHP10.327 trillion since it turned to foreign and local entities to acquire resources for the government’s response against COVID-19. However, with the first batch of vaccines donated by China–the Duterte administration must answer: “where did all the money go?”
