Despite the recent spike of COVID-19 cases in the country, it seems that the government is still not working hard enough in mitigating the pandemic.
Their poor response to the pandemic, including the sluggish procurement and distribution of the vaccines is truly maddening according to netizens.
Our local government units have different implementations and responses. Different people also strive to survive this pandemic individually by buying their own vaccines. What is the national government doing?
Kanya kanyang lockdown, kanya kanyang bili ng vaccine. May gobyerno pa ba tayo?

Celebrities and netizens also believe that we should stop depending on the government because they are not reliable.
Jason Abalos reminds everyone to help the frontliners and as much as possible, stay at home to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 cases.
Lets help our frontliners. Wag na muna lumabas ng bahay kung hindi kailangan para bumaba na ang kaso. Tayo tayo lang ang magtutulungan dito. God bless us all..

Former Vice President Jejomar Binay and netizens said that the government is afraid to admit that it failed to perform its duties and responsibilities. The people should not take the blame for all of these.
What’s in a name? The so-called “bubble” is in reality a lockdown. But gov’t won’t call it a lockdown because it will be an admission of their failure, neglect, and incompetence. Stop blaming the people.

Our government must accept first the problem before they can identify a real solution

Dear Government, before asking the public to follow health protocols, can you punish the high ranking officials who didn’t?

Currently, instead of focusing on the real problem of the pandemic, other government officials are busy making their names prominent for the upcoming election.
PDP-Laban, the political party of President Duterte, Executive Director @RonMunsayac pointed out that we are still in the same problem since last year and we badly need an effective leader!
The Philippines has one of the world's longest lockdowns yet covid cases are rising exponentially, the economy is at its worst, frontliners are giving up on this government.
We are still in the same problem that we have last year.
We need a leader. Not tarpaulins nor caravans.
