Yahoo Poll: Is health chief Duque the 'hero' of the government's 'good' pandemic response?

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte hailed Health Secretary Francisco Duque III as the "hero" of the government's "good" pandemic response.

"Compared with other countries, which is not really the time to do comparisons, but we are doing good in the fight against Covid and Secretary Duque is the hero here," Duterte said in his address to the public on May 3.

However, several senators disagreed with the president's assessment of Duque, in particular Senator Ping Lacson.

“He said that the Philippines is doing good in the fight against COVID-19 and called his health secretary a ‘hero.’ What he really meant was hilo (dazed),” Lacson tweeted.
