Binay slams gov't proposal to exchange nurses for vaccines
Former Vice President Jejomar Binay slammed the government's proposal to offer more nurses to the UK and Germany in exchange for vaccines.
"The proposal to offer more nurses to the UK and Germany in exchange for vaccines, if true, is insensitive and dehumanizing. Our nurses are not commodities to be traded," Binay said in a statement.
"Government keeps insisting we have enough money to pay for vaccines, so why even consider using our nurses to secure donations from the UK and Germany? If it wants to, government can even use the discretionary fund, and re-align the billions it has allocated to the NTF-ELCAC to purchase more vaccines," he said.
"Hindi po mga bagay na ikakalakal ang ating nurses kapalit ng bakuna. Ang dapat gawin ng gobyerno ay ayusin ang management ng vaccine procurement," Binay said.
