Mayor Richard Gomez of Ormoc City is quite alarmed of the photos circulating online, which some reporter from Rappler described as some images straight out of an apocalypse movie.
Quite alarmed that Mayor Gomez decided to writer an open letter, to call the attention of President Duterte regarding the situation at Rizal Memorial Coliseum for the Hatid Tulong Program. ‘Just in case no one is showing the real pictures,’ Mayor Gomez wrote.
On this note, Mayor Gomez can’t help but ask President Duterte who is in charge of the said program? He sounded apologetic for being curious, because in his opinion, that person he said is clueless of what he’s doing.
Why? Because that person has zero skill in managing huge crowd. No social distancing for more than 2 days!
I can only imagine Mayor Gomez shaking his head in disgust, wondering how many of these people will get covid before they return home to their respective provinces.
Mayor Gomez ended the open letter by telling President Duterte to get rid of this person for lack of sensitivity and also for disregarding public health.

This is the situation right now at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum for the Hatid Tulong program. Just in case no one is showing the real pictures. (the other one with Inquirer was from yesterday’s news)
Who is your person in charge of this program? I am sorry but in my opinion, that person doesn’t know what he is doing in organizing something as big as this.
He cannot tell the people to be in an orderly manner. No social distancing for more than 2 days!
How many of them will be infected with Covid as they head home to their provinces this week because of this arrangement!?
Whoever that person heading this program should be fired for insensitivity and no regard for public health!
