PALACE TO EXPERTS: RELAY PANDEMIC SUGGESTIONS ‘PRIVATELY’

Malacañang on Tuesday urged experts from the University of the Philippines to refrain from broadcasting their suggestions on pandemic lockdowns and instead relay these “privately” to authorities.

According to Presidential spokesman Harry Roque, the OCTA Research team, composed of experts from the University of the Philippines and the University of Santo Tomas that has made regular projections on the country’s coronavirus infections, has “1 or 2 epidemiologists” which is “not the same number of experts” working with the inter-agency task force leading the pandemic response.

“I wish they would refrain from making these recommendations publicly. They can probably endorse or course their recommendations privately to the IATF, nang hindi naman po napapangunahan, highlighting the fact that classifications are normally announced by no less than the President himself,” Roque said.
