Netizen calls for end of community pantry after guesstimating collateral damages to QC gov’t

COLLATERAL DAMAGE para sa propaganda

That’s the apt title of the FB post of 1dangkal ni JP, a pro-Duterte blogger and UP alumnus, comparing the monetary cost incurred by the government versus the Kapamilya actress in the aftermath of Angel Locsin’s community pantry.

1dangkal ni JP opened the FB post by guesstimating the cost of the Kapamilya actress’ birthday pantry.

“Kung naghanda si Angel ng para sa 300 pantry goers sa halagang P 200.00 na gulay sa bawat isa, gumastos siya ng P 60,000.00 hanggang P 100,000.00 (kasama na ang mga abot sa make-up artists na naka ID ng GMA na di umano ay hindi taga GMA). Idagdag mo pa ang pang- areglo sa pamilya ng amang namatay.”

On one hand, 1dangkal ni JP estimated that the government spent P225,000 for testing 65 individuals. That is on the assumption that the two individuals who tested positive have 5 members per family, therefore a total of 75 swab tests were conducted by the QC government. To arrive with the P225,000 figure, he just multiplied 75 by P3,000 (cost per swab test).

“Sa panig ng gobyerno, kung seryoso nga sila sa contact tracing, ayon sa balita ng PNA halos 65 pa lang ang na test nila sa mga pantry- goers at dalawa na agad ang nag positive sa Covid. Kung may sampung kapamilya ang dalawang ito na kailangan din i-test, sa 75 na Swab Test na tig P 3,000.00 kada isa, P 225,000.00 na agad ang nagastos ng QC Government.”

And here’s the worrisome part according to 1dangkal. Majority of those who are possibly infected with the virus has yet to get tested. If the government needs to test between 1,000 to 10,000 individuals, it will cost the government P3M to P30M. That money is not something to scoff at, especially to a government that is short of funds and could hardly feed the hungry poor.

“Hindi pa lahat ng posibleng nahawaan ng Covid ay na test sa pigura na yan. Kung 1,000 lang sa lagpas 10,000 na tao ang i-test mula sa Birthday ni Angel, gagastos ang gobyerno ng P 3,000,000.00 at kung lahat ay P 30 Million! Hindi birong pananagutan yan para sa pamahalaang naghihikahos at hindi na nga makapagpakain ng mga mahihirap, AP Non at Angel.”

“Paano pa ang hawaan sa iba pang pantry?” 1dangkal asked?

1dangkal ended the FB post by shouting for the end of community pantry because it costs the government so much when compared to the community pantry organizers.

“Food Pantry Costs the Government so much more than what these organizers who claim are not communists- are giving away. This is a very expensive activity. Ibagsak ang Community Pantry!”
